Flower by Elizabeth Craft and Shea Olsen - Fiction

I’ve always wanted to get the top grades in my class and make my grandmother proud. And most of all, proof that I could succeed where the rest of my family had not: a Stanford acceptance letter, early admission. My mother and my sister were obsessed with boys and love and sex. So obsessed that they lost sight of their futures, of what they wanted. And in the end, they lost everything. I’ll never let a boy distract me. I promised myself that, but that was before tate.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Movie Tie-In Edition) by Ransom Riggs - Fiction


When a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, he discovers the crumbling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned mansion, he wonders if the children who once lived here --- including his own grandfather --- were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow --- impossible though it seems --- they may still be alive.

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight - Psychological Thriller/Mystery


It all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help. Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie is in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself. This time it’s different, though. Instead of telling Wylie where she is, Cassie sends cryptic clues. And instead of having Wylie come by herself, Jasper shows up saying Cassie sent him to help. Trusting the guy who sent Cassie off the rails doesn’t feel right, but Wylie has no choice but to ignore her gut instinct and go with him. But figuring out where Cassie is goes from difficult to dangerous, fast.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - Young Adult Fantasy


Mare's world is divided by blood --- those with Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own. To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his sons. As Mare is drawn into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her position to help the Scarlet Guard --- a Red rebellion --- even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

Replica by Lauren Oliver - Young Adult Fiction


Lyra’s story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects --- Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72 --- manage to escape. A lonely teen, Gemma's life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family’s past and discovers her father’s mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility.
