Everything Must Go

Jenny Fran Davis

In Davis’ debut, vintage-fashion queen Flora Goldwasser has unexpectedly fallen in love with Elijah Huck, her private-school tutor. On a whim, she quits her exclusive Manhattan prep school to attend Quare, an alternative Quaker boarding school in upstate New York where Elijah will be teaching the following year. But when he doesn’t return to Quare as planned, Flora finds herself on her own. In her vintage suits, she stands out like a sore thumb among the tattered tunics and ripped jeans of the rest of the student body. But as Flora lets down her walls and embraces the Quare community, she ultimately learns more about herself than she ever thought possible.

Lauren Oliver

Gemma and Lyra's parallel stories come to an end in Oliver’s thrilling sequel to Replica (2016). Having escaped from the Haven Institute, Lyra and Caelum are living in a Tennessee trailer park with Lyra’s father. They're having trouble adjusting to life with humans and when Caelum leaves without warning, Lyra follows him to Philadelphia in the hopes of finding a cure for the illness that is slowly consuming her mind. Meanwhile, Gemma just wants a normal life with her boyfriend Pete, but her powerful father has other plans for the replicas—unless she and Pete can stop him. But they aren’t safe either and when they're mistaken for the escaped replicas, Gemma and Pete are captured and taken to the Haven Institute.

Before she inherits the throne, Margaret will have a summer of freedom posing as a commoner in Toronto. Here she forms an unexpected love triangle with newfound friends Helena and August. During a summer of romantic balls and politically charged tea parties, the three share an extraordinary bond and the chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process!
