Walk the Edge

By Katie McGarry
For Ages: 14 and up
Smart. Responsible. That's seventeen-year-old Breanna's role in her large family, and heaven forbid she put a toe out of line. Until one night of shockingly un-Breanna-like behavior puts her into a vicious cyberbully's line of fire—and brings fellow senior Thomas "Razor" Turner into her life. 


Sisters of Salt and Iron

By Kady Cross
For Ages: 14 and up
Lark Noble is finally happy. She's trying to move on and put the events of the past behind her: the people who avoided her because she talked to the ghost of her dead twin sister, the parents who couldn't be around her anymore and even the attempt she made on her own life. She finally has friends—people who know her secrets and still care about her—and she has Ben, the cute guy she never saw coming. 


Heir to the Sky

By Amanda Sun
For Ages: 14 and up
As heir to a kingdom of floating continents, Kali has spent her life bound by limits: by her duties as a member of the royal family, by a forced betrothal to the son of a nobleman, and by the edge of the only world she's ever known—a small island hovering above a monster-ridden earth, long since uninhabited by humans. She is the Eternal Flame of Hope for what's left of mankind, the wick and the wax burning in service for her people, and for their revered Phoenix, whose magic keeps them aloft. 


The Problem with Forever

By Jennifer L. Armentrout
For Ages: 14 and up
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a riveting new story about friendship, survival and finding your voice. For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. 

My Favorite from 2015 (in case you're all caught up!)

What We Left Behind

For Ages: 16 and up
Why It's Awesome
Appropriate for teens experiencing issues of gender identity when there are few books out there that explore the topic. Appropriate for teens not experiencing questions of gender identity as the book can teach empathy as well. Well-rounded journey of teen social themes.
