If I’m Being Honest by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka

So when she puts her foot in her mouth in front of her crush, Andrew, she fears she may have lost him for good. In an attempt to win him over, Cameron resolves to “tame” herself, starting with making amends with Brendan. Except, Andrew doesn’t seem to notice the new Cameron, and Brendan does.
The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe
Norris is clever, cynical, and quite possibly too smart for his own good. A black French Canadian, he knows those three things don’t bode well when you are moving to Austin, Texas. He starts cataloging everyone he meets: the Cheerleaders, the Jocks, the Loners, and even the Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Making a ton of friends has never been a priority for him, and this way he can at least amuse himself until it’s time to go back to Canada, where he belongs. Yet, against all odds, those labels soon become actual people to Norris.

Dreaming Darkly by Caitlin Kittredge
Ivy’s mother is dead, and she should probably be sad about it. But she isn’t. Myra was a confusing mix of protective and abusive, a manipulative personality who never told the truth. Now that Ivy has been sent to Darkhaven to live with a rich uncle she didn’t know existed, she is forced to reckon with her mother’s past. When she wakes up from one of her nightmares covered in someone else’s blood, Ivy fears that whatever demons her mother battled while she was alive have come to roost in her own mind.
You Must Not Miss by Katrina Leno
Magpie started writing in her yellow notebook the night of Brandon Phipp’s party.

Feeling trapped and forgotten, Magpie retreats to her notebook, dreaming up a place called Near. She imagines Near so completely, so fully, that she writes it into existence, right in her own backyard. It’s a place where she can have anything she wants…even revenge.
