Fear of Missing Out
Kate Mcgovern
McGovern's (Rules for 50/50 Chances, 2015) latest is a heartbreaking story of loss and grief. Astrid suffers from a rare form of cancer and after two years in remission, her brain tumor is back. This time she refuses to endure the ordeal of hospitals and chemo. Instead, Astrid investigates the little-known science of cryopreservation that will keep her body in a frozen state until a cure becomes available. Accompanied by her best friend and her boyfriend, she takes a road-trip to Arizona to find out more about it. Along the way Astrid contemplates what the end of her life means and how her death will affect her loved ones.

Samira Ahmed
Ahmed (Love, Hate & Other Filters, 2018) sets her chilling novel in a near-future United States after an election that brought about a Muslim ban, Exclusion laws, and the internment of Muslims. Layla Amin is enraged that her small liberal California community accepts curfews, book burnings, and the racist and Islamophobic rhetoric of a president who considers all Muslims to be threat. When she and her family are abruptly “relocated” to a camp in the desert, Layla decides to fight back. Before long she becomes the leader of a revolution against the sadistic and despicable camp Director.

Meagan Spooner
In this retelling of the Robin Hood legend, Spooner (Hunted, 2017) delivers an engaging and romantic adventure. Maid Marian is devastated when her childhood love Robin of Locksley is killed fighting in the Holy Land. She doesn't know how she'll go on, but the people of Nottingham need a protector. They're being persecuted by the dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sherriff’s right hand man who's poised to take over Locksley and ask for Marian’s hand in marriage. Determined to protect her people, she disguises herself with Robin's green cloak, takes up his sword and uses her archery skills to become her own hero!
