Dress Codes for Small Towns
Courtney Stevens
Stevens’ (The Lies about Truth, 2015) spirited novel tells the story of a memorable summer in Otters Holt, Kentucky that’s filled with big mistakes, small lies, and numerous misunderstandings. Always a troublemaker, Billie McCaffrey never fit the conventional mold of a preacher’s daughter. She’d rather wear sweats, build furniture, and get into trouble with her solid group of friends known as the Hexagon. But the summer before her senior year, Billie’s relationships with her friends begins to shift. When Janie Lee confesses that she’s in love with Woods, Billie realizes that she is also in love with Woods, and maybe with Janie Lee too. She keeps her conflicting feelings to herself because Billie doesn’t want anyone slapping a label on her sexuality before she can figure it out for herself.

Wicked Like a Wildfire
Lana Popovic
Popovic’s fantasy debut is a slow-burning fairy tale about the power of love and the bonds between siblings. In a village in Montenegro, 17-year-old Iris lives with her sweet, musical twin sister, Malina, and her harsh, icy mother, Jasmina. All the women in their family have the ability to magically manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. Their mother will not allow the sisters to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. But when Jasmina is mysteriously attacked, Iris and Malina are forced to embrace their magical heritage and unearth the truth behind the quiet life their mother has built for them.
