Baker, Chandler. Alive. Disney/Hyperion. Stella Cross has received a heart transplant, but it has not stopped her emotional suffering.  Then a mysterious boy named Levi Zin comes into her life.  Stella’s pain goes away whenever she’s around Levi. However, Stella finds out a terrible secret about Levi. Can it be true?

He recruits a gang of six dangerous misfits to help him with the heist.  The book follows the crew’s crazy adventure and features plot twists, betrayals, and schemes aplenty.  


Black, Holly. The Darkest Part of the Forest.  Little, Brown & Co. In Fairfold, a place where both humans and Faeries live, siblings Hazel and Ben have grown up telling each other stories about the boy in the glass coffin in the woods. The boy has horns and ears pointy as knives, perhaps he’s a prince or a knight. Of course, they’ll never know because the boy will never wake. Then, unexpectedly, he does . . .  


Cornwell, Betsy. Mechanica. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt /Clarion Books. A new take on the classic story of Cinderella. Mechanica uses her wit and her mother’s old engineering textbooks to try to escape her stepmother and stepsisters. Mechanica is a strong, smart, and capable character in a book that has an inspirational message for teenage girls. 

 
Heltzel, Anne. Charlie, Presumed Dead. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Charlie Price is presumed dead after his plane crashes. However, his body is never found. At his funeral, Lena and Aubrey meet and discover both were his girlfriend. Lena believes Charlie is still alive, and she and Aubrey set out on a journey across Europe and Asia to expose Charlie’s deceit. The girls try to work together, but the secrets they hide could prevent them from finding Charlie.  


Kaufman Amie, and Jay Kristoff. Illuminae. Random House/Alfred A. Knopf. Kady and Ezra have just broken up, and then their planet is bombed by a megacorporation. The pair escapes to a government ship, but must put their differences aside in order to survive and stop a plague that has resulted from the use of a bioweapon.  


Laurie, Victoria. When. Disney/Hyperion. High school junior Maddie Fynn has special powers that allow her to see numbers above a person’s forehead, which she soon discovers are death dates. She identifies the death date of a young boy, but is unable to prevent his disappearance. Then, Maddie becomes a suspect in a homicide investigation.    
 
Priest, Cherie. Illustrated by Kali Ciesemier. I Am Princess X. Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine. When they were young, best friends Libby and May created a comic character named Princess X.

The similarities between those stories and Libby’s own stories are striking. Could her friend still be alive? 

 
Sedgwick, Marcus. The Ghosts of Heaven.  Macmillan/Roaring Brook Press.  An epic story about the journey of discovery told in four episodes. The first, takes place during prehistoric times, as a girl picks up a stick and creates some of the first cave drawings.

Finally, a trip to the future, as a spaceship travels to settle another world.    
 
Simmons, Kristen. The Glass Arrow. Tor Teen. Set in the future, Aya is a 15-year-old girl who has spent her life hiding in the mountains in order to avoid the fate of most women, who are treated like property and auctioned off for breeding.

Stohl, Margaret. Black Widow Forever Red. Disney/Marvel Press.    

Natasha, Black Widow, is one of the world’s most lethal assassins, and she once rescued young Ava Orlova from being subjected to a series of military experiments.  Now, Black Widow and Orlova, who is 15 years old and living in Brooklyn, team up again to stop Widow’s former teacher, the evil Ivan Somodorov, from wreaking havoc on the children of Eastern Europe. 

 
Stone, Tamara Ireland. Every Last Word. Disney/Hyperion. Samantha McAllister seems to have it all: she is beautiful, bright and part of the popular crowd in high school. But looks can be deceiving, and she is hiding the fact she has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Samantha’s life changes after she visits a place at school called Poet’s Corner and she begins hanging out with new friends like Caroline and AJ.  


Westerfeld, Scott, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti. Zeroes. Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse. Six California teens have special powers that aren’t always welcome. Like Ethan, known as Scam, who has a voice inside of him that will sometimes speak out when it’s not the right time to do so. When that “power” gets Ethan in trouble, the other Zeroes are the only ones who can rescue him. However, the members of this group are not exactly the best of friends.  


Yoon, Nicola. Everything, Everything. Random House/Delacorte Press. Maddy is a teenager with a serious autoimmune disease that prevents her from leaving the house. Yet, she seems content to stay home and read books. That is until a boy named Olly moves in next door.  The two meet, and their quirky relationship is chronicled through emails, journal entries, IMs and old notes.
