Listen to Your Heart
by Kasie West

Submitted by Emily D.
This is a love story like Sleepless in Seattle. Kate would much rather be jet skiing on the lake than hosting a podcast – but it turns out she’s equally good at both. Giving life advice on her podcast is easy until Kate’s feelings for an anonymous caller start to mess with her head. This book is swoony. (YA Fiction)

Misfit City
by Kirsten Smith

Submitted by Emily D.
Loaded with some incredible Goonies-like nostalgia, Misfit City follows Wilder and her group of friends on an epic treasure hunt. The prize at the end? They’re pretty sure it’s actual pirate treasure. This is an action packed adventure you won’t want to miss! (YA Graphic Novels - Volume 2 is also out now)

The Boat Runner
by Devin Murphy

Submitted by Emily D.
Jacob Koopman and his family live in a small Dutch town as the tension in Europe begins to rise. As World War II beings, Jacob must figure out where his loyalities lie. A truly unique story that shows the blurred lines of good and evil. (Adult Fiction)

To All the Boys I've Loved Before
by Jenny Han

Submitted by Emily D.
We’ve all had crushes we’re too shy to admit. Lara Jean has had several crushes she’s never admitted. As her way of moving on, Lara Jean writes each boy a letter of what she loves the most about them – but what happens if the boys read them? To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is romantic and a sweet story of first love. A great summer romance for teens. Note: movie adaption hits Netflix this August! (YA Fiction)
