Stay Sweet
by Siobhan Vivian

Submitted by Emily D.
It’s a little cold for ice cream now but this book is still sweet! Amelia loves working at the local ice cream stand but when the ownership changes hands…things get a little more complicated for her. I really enjoyed the main character and her passion for this business. For fans of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. (Teen Fiction)

13 Minutes
by Sarah Pinborough

Submitted by Amanda D.
A compulsively readable YA mystery, reminiscent of the film Mean Girls and the illustrious “Burn Book.” All through, I was unsure where this book was going to go right up to the very end. A fun, fast paced page turner! (YA Fiction)

Caroline Hochstetter, a first class passenger on the ill-fated ship, is hoping to reconnect with her distant husband when trouble in the form of an old flame threatens to upend her life. Tessa Fairweather is a con artist who has been strong armed into one last heist that could change the course of history. This historical mystery is told in three distinct voices across two timelines that will have you looking up the history books to see just what you remember about the sinking of the Lusitania. (Adult Fiction)
