Jillian, what’s at the top of your recently read list?

Water in May by Ismee Williams
Fifteen-year-old Mari, a Dominican-American girl, learns her much-hoped-for baby has a serious heart defect, and she must stand up to everyone around her who thinks they know best what she should do. Authentic, heartbreaking voice and deeply moving without being predictable or cheesy.

The Leaf Reader by Emily Arsenault

Marnie reads tea leaves for fun. Then her predictions start coming true. This is a tightly-written thriller with a sympathetic but flawed protagonist and a gripping, believable narrative that will keep you turning pages long after your bedtime.

Saints and Misfits by S.K. Ali
Janna, a Muslim teen, struggles with whether to reveal the identity of the boy who attacked her since he is the golden boy of the mosque. A must-read for anyone who loves stories about friendship, faith, and finding your voice.”

Very ingriguing suggestions, Jillian – all of them sound excellent! Thanks for sharing!
