Safe Harbour by Christina Kilbourne
Harbour is living in a tent in a Toronto ravine with her dog, a two-month supply of canned tuna, and an eccentric reading list. She’s not homeless, she’s waiting for her father to come get her. When her credit card is declined, phone contact from her father stops, and summer slips into a frosty fall, Harbour is forced to face reality and accept the help of a homeless girl named Lise to survive on the streets.
Just Breathe by Cammie McGovern
David is the popular president of his senior class, battling cystic fibrosis. Jamie is a quiet sophomore, struggling with depression. The pair soon realizes that they can be their true selves with each other, and their unlikely friendship develops into something so much more. But neither Jamie nor David can bring themselves to reveal the secrets that weigh most heavily on their hearts—and their time for honesty may be running out.
Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore
Summer, 1518. A strange sickness sweeps through Strasbourg: women dance in the streets, some until they fall down dead. As rumors of witchcraft spread, suspicion turns toward Lavinia and her family. Five centuries later, a pair of red shoes seal to Rosella’s feet, making her dance uncontrollably. They draw her toward Emil, whose family was blamed for the fever five hundred years ago. But there’s more to what happened in 1518 than even Emil knows, and discovering the truth may decide whether Rosella survives the red shoes.
Sick Kids in Love by Hannah Moskowitz
Isabel has one rule: no dating. Isabel has issues. She has secrets. She has rheumatoid arthritis. But then she meets another sick kid with a chronic illness she’s never heard of, something she can’t even pronounce. He understands what it means to be sick. He understands her more than her healthy friends. He understands her more than her own father who’s a doctor. He’s gorgeous, fun, and foul-mouthed. And totally into her.
Jane Anonymous by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Then, “Jane” was just your typical girl getting ready to start her senior year.

Now, it’s been three months since “Jane” escaped captivity and returned home. Three months of writing down everything she remembered from those seven months locked up in that stark white room. But, what if everything you thought you knew turned out to be a lie?
