In this Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower tale, narrator Anika Dragomir is the third most popular girl at Pound High School. But inside, she knows she's a freak; she can't stop thinking about former loner Logan McDonough, who showed up on the first day of tenth grade hotter, bolder, and more mysterious than ever. Logan is fascinating, troubled and off-limits. The Pound High queen bee will make Anika's life hell if she's seen with him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.

Noggin

What would you do if you woke up after five years of being dead with your head attached to someone else’s body? Five years ago, Travis Coates agreed to have his head cryogenically frozen and hopefully reattached to someone else’s body. No one really expected it to work, so when Travis does wake up, fully functional, alive and healthy, everyone is confused on how things are going to work out. Travis’s girlfriend is engaged, his best friend is still in the closet, and something suspicious is going on with his dad. In this book, he has to figure out how to navigate a life that has moved on without him.
