Just like every other high school junior, Janey King has a crazy schedule, jam-packed with track, friends, and the SATs. Not to mention, she's also dealing with her parents' unexpected separation. But things change when the cutest senior in school starts noticing her. Suddenly, she has a bunch of questions about about relationships, sex, and even herself. Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter is used to moving between two worlds — her poor neighborhood and her fancy prep school. But everything changes when her childhood best friend Khalil is shot and killed by a police officer. He was unarmed.
There is truly something for everyone this year, whether that reader enjoys things quirky and magical, extra-real real, wild, or world-building. The books, they keep on coming, and these 17 are just the beginning of what promises to make an exciting year for YA lovers. Divergent author Veronica Roth is back with a new series, this time set in another galaxy, instead of a dystopic Chicago. This murder mystery set in Kenya follows Tina, a girl who fled the Congo only to now suspect the wealthy and powerful Kenyan family that employed her mother as a maid may have also been responsible for her death. Living on the streets with revenge on her mind, Tina makes her way back into the world of the esteemed and criminal Greyhills that, needless to say, is both dangerous and gripping. She hits all the right notes again in We Are Okay , about Marin, who fled her old life in California for college in New York without a single word to anyone who knew her… including her best friend Mabel. This quiet novel about grief and loss and escaping sadness is perfect for readers who prefer big feels to big action.
