Stars and Smoke

Marie Lu


Nineteen-year old Winter Young, the world's hottest superstar, is recruited by a covert organization to take down a criminal tycoon and finds himself paired with Sydney Cossette, a fierce and unpredictable secret agent, but suspicions soon turn to sparks as the two are drawn into a tangled web of secrets and deception.

The Midnight Girls

Alicia Jasinska


In a snow-cloaked kingdom, two rival servants--one who desperately wants to win the approval of the Red Jaga and the other who hopes to escape the Black Jaga--compete for the pure heart of a prince, only to discover they might be falling for each other instead.


Mario Tamaki

Todd Mayer is dead. Now he's some sort of ghost, hovering over his body, which has just been found naked and frozen in the snow. As detectives investigate Todd's homicide, talking to the people who are responsible for how he died, Todd replays the events that lead him to his end in the park. Georgia didn't know Todd. But she can't stop thinking about him. Maybe it's because they're both outcasts at their school, or because they're both queer. It might also be because Georgia has a feeling she's seen Todd somewhere before, somewhere he wasn't supposed to be. 

This dual narrative is told through the voices of Todd in his afterlife and Georgia as she uncovers the truth behind his death, resulting in an immersive, emotional, and provocative read.
