My name is Lauren, and I am on-top-of-the-world excited to be on Teen Board. Besides books and writing, I love art, being in nature, learning new things and meeting new people. On an average evening, you can probably find me chatting with my family and friends with a book in one hand and a homework assignment in the other. 

I hope you find your next great read this week!

Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendant of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history. The imperial tradition of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage. But before she does her duty, she'll have one summer of freedom in a far corner of empire. Posing as a commoner in Toronto, she meets Helena, daughter of one of the empire's greatest geneticists, and August, the heir to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates. In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena and August discover they share an extraordinary bond and maybe a one-in-a-million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process.

Zeus, a king of the gods always in search of a new bae. A squad of goddesses who can’t resist stirring the pot. And the selfie-obsessed heroes out for all the likes. If you have trouble telling Perseus from Theseus (#Greek2Me) or have ever wondered about Oedipus’s tragic dating profile or why Medusa’s Instagram never got traction --- this satirical book of Greek myths retold for the Internet age is for you!

Ever since Esther’s grandfather was cursed by Death, everyone in her family has been doomed to suffer one great fear in their lifetime. Esther doesn’t know what her great fear is yet, so she keeps a list of potential phobias, or worst nightmares, in her pocket. When Esther is pickpocketed by an old classmate named Jonah, he discovers her list and the two become friends. Jonah sets a challenge for them: in an effort to break the curse that has crippled her family, they will meet every Sunday of senior year to work their way through the list, facing one terrifying fear at a time, including one that Esther hadn’t counted on: love.
