100 Sideways Miles
Andrew Smith
Destiny takes a detour in the latest novel from the acclaimed author of Winger (2013). When Finn Easton, 16, was a child, a dead horse falling from a bridge injured him and killed his mother. After the accident, his dad featured Finn and his epilepsy in a novel that became a sci-fi classic, making his son's life a nightmare. The only people who treat him as a real person are his best friend, the zany Cade and his first love, Julia. When Julia moves away, all seems lost, but a road trip with Cade, a heroic rescue during a flash flood, mistaken identities, and a long detour, offer Finn a chance to remake himself.

Anatomy of a Misfit
Andrea Portes
Portes's emotionally devastating YA debut is based on true events and recounts the story of 15-year-old Anika Dragomir who worries a lot about her social standing at Pound High School. Although she is the third most popular girl in school, Anika feels like a freak. She’s a mix of dark thoughts, and, if the rumor mill is to be believed, descended from vampires. After all, her father is from Romania. So when she falls for former social outcast Logan McDonough, Anika must keep their relationship a secret or else risk total social annihilation at the hands of Becky Vilhauser, the most popular girl in school.
