Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed
Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state candidate - as long as he’s behind the scenes. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya. Maya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is cancelled, her parents are separating and now her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing - with some awkward guy she hardly knows ... Going door to door isn’t exactly glamorous, but maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer - and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural crush of the century is another thing entirely.
So good! Heartwarming, fun just wonderful! Becky and Aisha work so well together and this story just flows so nicely with both of their writing styles and it was just so, so, so good!
Wranglestone by Darren Charlton
Winter was the only season every Lake-Lander feared…
In a post-apocalyptic America, a community survives in a national park, surrounded by water that keeps the Dead at bay. But when winter comes, there’s nothing to stop them from crossing the ice.
Then homebody Peter puts the camp in danger by naively allowing a stranger to come ashore and he’s forced to leave the community of Wranglestone. Now he must help rancher Cooper, the boy he’s always watched from afar, herd the Dead from their shores before the lake freezes over.
But as love blossoms, a dark discovery reveals the sanctuary’s secret past. One that forces the pair to question everything they’ve ever known.
Fantastic, brilliant, just overall so good! An amazing debut book from Darren that is full of action, thrilling and full of romance! A brilliant LGBTQ+ Zombie book that everyone will enjoy!
Diary of a Confused Feminist by Kate Weston
15-year-old Kat wants to do GOOD FEMINISM, although she's not always sure what that means. She also wants to be a writer, get together with Hot Josh (is this a feminist ambition?), win at her coursework and not make a TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT of herself at all times.
But the path to true feminism is filled with mortifying incidents, muddling moments and Instagram hell. And it doesn't help that Hot Josh is just, well, properly, distractingly hot.
And when everything at school starts to get a bit too much, Kat knows she's lost her way, and the only way forward is to ask for help ...
A fantastic read that tackles topics like, mooncups, #MeToo and so much more through the diary of a 15 year old. It will make you laugh out loud with how honest and authentic Kat is and even embarrassing. It is so good.
You, Me, Forever by Jo Watson
It all started with faulty elevator - and a love letter...
Writer Becca Thorne needs an idea - fast! She might have a huge bestseller to her name but, with the deadline for book two approaching, Becca knows she's in danger of losing the career she cares so much about. But Fate has other plans for her when she almost plummets to her death with two strangers in a faulty elevator.
Although Becca emerges in one piece, her precious vintage handbag doesn't, and that's when she realises that inspiration has been with her all along. Hidden inside the bag's now-torn lining is a set of beautiful love letters. It might not be her story, yet Becca can't seem to get the romantic words out of her head and feels compelled to discover who wrote the letters. But there's more waiting for Becca than the tale of a romance from long ago - it might be the chance to live her own love story and follow the path Fate has always intended her to...
Jo is one of my favourite authors and I will always recommend her books. This is funny, heartwarming and just a book you will want to curl up with one evening. It is a beautiful story!
The Holdout by Graham Moore
One juror changed the verdict. What if she was wrong?
'Ten years ago we made a decision together...'
Fifteen-year-old Jessica Silver, heiress to a billion-dollar fortune, vanishes on her way home from school. Her teacher, Bobby Nock, is the prime suspect. It's an open and shut case for the prosecution, and a quick conviction seems all but guaranteed.
Until Maya Seale, a young woman on the jury, persuades the rest of the jurors to vote not guilty: a controversial decision that will change all of their lives forever.
Ten years later, one of the jurors is found dead, and Maya is the prime suspect.
The real killer could be any of the other ten jurors. Is Maya being forced to pay the price for her decision all those years ago?
AMAZING! Such an amazing thriller that will grip you from the very beginning and you will just be hooked! I adored every second of this book and the twists and turns just kept me needing more.
