Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Available at our library in print (YA ALB #1) and as both an eBook and audiobook on the Hoopla app.

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Available at our library in print (YA MAA #1) and as an eBook on the Cloud Library app.

In a land without magic, where the king rules with an iron hand, an assassin is summoned to the castle. She comes not to kill the king, but to win her freedom.
