Althea and Oliver

Cristina Moracho

In Moracho’s debut, Althea Carter and Oliver McKinley have been best friends since they were six. Now 17, temperamental Althea feels that she's the one who yearns for something more from their relationship while Oliver wants everything to be normal. Further complicating matters is Oliver's illness; he suffers from a rare syndrome characterized by long periods of sleep, memory lapses, and erratic behavior. When Oliver enrolls in a sleep study in New York City, Althea attempts to track him down. Along the way she makes new friends and discovers a stronger, more independent version of herself.

The Young Elites

Marie Lu

In this series opener, Lu (Legend trilogy) imagines the alternative medieval world of Kenettra. Here a blood fever has killed all infected adults and left most child survivors permanently scarred malfettos. A handful, including 16-year-old Adelina Amouteru, underwent mutations that gave them mystical, often lethal powers. All Adelina has ever wanted is to feel accepted, but she’s tormented by her abusive father and persecuted for being a malfetto. Refusing to be controlled by any group, Adelina fights her own battle with a vengeful black heart and a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
