Maid of Secrets, by Jennifer McGowan. I loved this book and the main character Meg, who is fierce, loyal, and determined. Plot twists, danger, and an intriguing romance kept me furiously turning the pages!
Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell. Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this story of two star-crossed misfits is pitch-perfect from the first moment when they reluctantly share a seat on the school bus right through their first touch, first kiss, and painful parting. A beautifully told story about the relationship between two teens who feel like perpetual outsiders until they meet.
