Alice Broadway
In Broadway's fantasy debut, the people of Saintstone literally wear their lives on their skin because every citizen has their life's story, both the good and the bad tattooed on their bodies. After they die, if the government decides a person is worthy of the honor, their skin is turned into a book to be treasured by their family. Leora has always dreamed of becoming an inker, the person responsible for tattooing people’s stories onto their skin. But after her father dies she's shocked to see that his skin has the symbol of the worst crime a person can commit in Saintstone. She knows it has to be a mistake, but before Leora can do anything about it, the horrifying secret gets out, jeopardizing her father's legacy and her life.

Together at Midnight
Jennifer Castle
Jennifer Castle’s (What Happens Now, 2016) latest novel is a romantic, thought-provoking tale of human connection and how we find and make our place in the world. High school senior Kendall has just returned from a life-changing semester in Europe, and Max is in the midst of an aimless gap year before college. Their paths cross in New York City when they witness a near-fatal bus accident. Because the teens feel guilty for not intervening and preventing the crash, they agree to complete seven random acts of kindness between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. The challenge pulls Kendall and Max together and they can't deny their growing bond even though they both have other romantic entanglements and uncertain futures.
