All the Forever Things by Jolene Perry - Fiction

Growing up in the funeral home her family runs, Gabriella knows that death is a part of life and nothing is forever. When her best friend Bree starts dating the worst guy, she doesn’t have time for Gabe anymore. Now the only one at school who wants to spend time with “Graveyard Gabe” is the new guy, Hartman. Gabe is hesitant, but only on a very strange prom night (with the family hearse instead of a limo), she truly falls for Hartman. But when she leaves the after-prom party with him, she’s not there for Bree --- or for the deadly accident that happens that night. Bree survives, but will she and Gabe ever be able to rebuild their friendship?

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller - Historical Fiction

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map --- the key to a legendary treasure trove --- seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship. More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

Love and First Sight by Josh Sundquist - Fiction

On his first day at a new school, blind 16-year-old Will Porter accidentally groped a girl on the stairs, sat on another student in the cafeteria and somehow drove a classmate to tears. High school can only go up from here, right? As Will starts to find his footing, he develops a crush on a charming, quiet girl named Cecily. Then an unprecedented opportunity arises: an experimental surgery that could give Will eyesight for the first time in his life. But learning to see is more difficult than Will ever imagined, and he soon discovers that the sighted world has been keeping secrets.

Rebels Like Us by Liz Reinhardt - Fiction

Culture shock knocks city girl Agnes "Nes" Murphy-Pujols off-kilter when she's transplanted mid–senior year from Brooklyn to a small Southern town after her mother's relationship with a coworker self-destructs. On top of the move, Nes is nursing a broken heart and severe homesickness, so her plan is simple: keep her head down, graduate and get out. Too bad that flies out the window on day one, when she opens her smart mouth and pits herself against the school's reigning belle and the principal. Her rebellious streak attracts the attention of local golden boy Doyle Rahn, who teaches Nes the ropes at Ebenezer. As her friendship with Doyle sizzles into something more, Nes discovers the town she's learning to like has an insidious undercurrent of racism.
