Emiko Jean
Description: In each generation, a competition is held to find the next empress of Honoku. The rules are simple. Survive the palace's enchanted seasonal rooms. Conquer Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, and you can marry the prince. All are eligible to compete--all except yōkai, supernatural monsters and spirits whom the human emperor is determined to enslave and destroy. Mari has spent a lifetime training to become empress. Winning should be easy. And it would be, if she weren't hiding a dangerous secret. Mari is a yōkai with the ability to transform into a terrifying monster. If discovered, her life will be forfeit. As she struggles to keep her true identity hidden, Mari's fate collides with that of Taro, the prince who has no desire to inherit the imperial throne, and Akira, a half-human, half-yōkai outcast.

Description: "Stella Grant likes to be in control—even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions. The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals. Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment. What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?"--Jacket flap.

Description: The summer before her junior year, paleontology geek and plus-size fashion blogger Natalie Page lands a coveted summer internship at an Ice Age dig site, but soon finds that the rockabilly-retro style she developed to shield herself from bullying isn't compatible with prospecting for fossils in the Texas heat. But nothing is going to dampen Natalie's spirit. She's exactly where she wants to be, and she gets to work with her hero--the host of the most popular paleontology podcast in the world. And there's also Chase, the intern, who's seriously cute, and Cody, a local boy who'd be even cuter if he were less of a grouch. It's a summer that promises to be about more than just mammoths. Until it isn't...

Description: "Sixteen-year-old Bart Lively desperately wants to feel comfortable in his own skin. Sure, he's a competitive swimmer, but being a jock doesn't mean he isn't the target of gay jokes, and the macho culture of his swim club is wearing him down. At the same time, he becomes drawn to the art and athleticism of synchronized swimming, the idea of the human form moving to music under water. So he jumps at the opportunity to become the first boy on the synchro swimming team, even if it means others start questioning his masculinity even more. He starts finding himself attracted to his teammate Erika, and when she asks Bart to swim with her in a brand new event, the mixed duet, he commits to taking them all the way to the Olympics. But Bart's difficulty at achieving the skills he needs, and Erika's sudden decision to quit the duet, threaten to derail his dream and kill what made the sport so liberating and alluring in the first place. And it doesn't help that as he falls in love with Erika, he's falling in lust with her enemy and synchro rival Chelsea ... not to mention a cute boy in the diving club. Ultimately, Bart will have to give in to his intuition that leads him to realize there are many ways to be a boy. If he doesn't, he'll not only lose his friendship with Erika, but his new Olympic dream--and the joy he feels as he dances in the deep"--Amazon.

Description: "Raquel Clearwater has just buried her best friend, Sasha Cade, and now her grief is overwhelming. And then a letter comes. It's from Sasha, written before she died. Following the letter's mysterious instructions, Raquel returns to Sasha's grave and meets a handsome stranger who just happens to share her best friend's dark skin and startling blue eyes. It turns out that, months before her death, Sasha went against her adopted parents' wishes and investigated her birth family, only to discover she had a biological brother who grew up in foster care. Sasha wanted her brother to know all about her, but she didn't want him to meet a girl on her deathbed. So she set up an elaborate scavenger hunt for Elijah and Raquel--complete with packages, pre-scheduled emails, videos, and a few other tricks--to reveal what her life was like before the cancer. Raquel jumps at the chance to take this journey with Elijah. It's like being with Sasha all over again. But it's painful to see the contrast between Sasha's life of privilege and Elijah's life of need, and Raquel comes to realize that keeping Sasha's secrets may hurt this boy she is growing to care about. Can Raquel be true to her friend while also being true to herself, true to life and true to her new love?"-- Provided by publisher.

Description: "Nessa, Delphine and CM: three sisters, together for the first time. Their father, Daniel Host, is a genius or a lunatic, depending whose story you believe.

Description: For centuries, periods have been a taboo subject. They're embarrassing. They're gross. And they are misunderstood. Okamoto shows that, because of these stigmas, a status quo has been established to exclude people who menstruate from the seat at the decision-making table. She aims to explain what menstruation is, shed light on the stigmas and resulting biases, and create a strategy to end the silence and prompt conversation about periods.
