Four Three Two One
Courtney Stevens
Stevens’ (Dress Codes For Small Towns, 2017) latest is an original and captivating coming-of-age story of trauma and resilience. Although it’s been a year since four teens survived a bus bombing in New York City, they still have secrets and guilt about that awful day. One of the teens, Golden “Go” Jennings makes an impulsive decision to gather the survivors and head to New York City where they’ll board an art installation made from the charred remains of the bus. She hopes this will lead to some type of resolution. But uniting the four teens unleashes conflicting emotions of anger and forgiveness as they each relive that fateful day.

The Lying Woods
Ashley Elston
In Elston's (This Is Our Story, 2016) latest, senior Owen Foster has never wanted for anything. But then his mother shows up unexpectedly at his glamorous New Orleans boarding school and drops a bombshell: for years his father embezzled millions leaving his company, his employees, and his family in shambles. Now he's on the run from the FBI leaving Owen and his mother to return home and deal with the fallout. With threats to his mother and a mysterious, encoded note from his father on his mind, Owen turns to the only two people in town who welcome him: his former best friend, Pippa, and Gus who owns a local pecan farm where he works after school.

Robin Talley
In this stunning novel of bravery and love, Talley (Our Own Private Universe, 2017) ties together the lives of two young women connected across generations through the power of words. In 1955, aspiring teen author Janet Jones lives in Washington, DC and keeps the love she shares with her best friend Marie a secret. When she discovers a lesbian novel at a bus station, Janet is inspired to write one herself. Sixty-two years later, high school senior and writer Abby Zimet is out and proud. Because of the stress of her recent breakup and her parents’ crumbling marriage, she immerses herself in vintage lesbian fiction and feels connected to one author, "Marian Love," and is determined to track her down.
