Terciel & Elinor by Garth Nix

Old Kingdom fans rejoice! 25 years ago, we were introduced to Sabriel and her world. All we saw of her parents were bits of memory, but now we finally hear their story. Elinor has been kept away from knowledge of the Old Kingdom, so she’s baffled when a young man called Terciel knocks on her door speaking of dead creatures. Here’s everything (and more!) Garth Nix fans have come to expect, but previous knowledge is not required to enjoy this lush sorcerous prequel.—Ivy

Loveless by Alice Oseman

This is the book I needed when I was a teenager. Loveless is the first novel to center on the experience of coming to terms with and coming out as asexual, and it hits every beat. Our protagonist starts college seeking romance––only to find that her experiences aren't matching up with stories, movies, and societal expectations she's been raised on. This book is groundbreaking for the asexual community, as well as a profound reflection on the value of non-romantic forms of love.—Zoe

Aristotle and Dante Dive Into the Waters of the World by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Almost a decade ago, Aristotle and Dante’s story ended with a declaration of love and a kiss in the desert. Now turn the page and you’re back in 1988 under the stars with two boys in each other’s arms. Benjamin Alire Sáenz draws a world wider than just Ari and Dante, full of danger and sorrow—the AIDS pandemic, prejudice, personal tragedy—but also populated with fantastic characters, new and old, with connection and hope in a better tomorrow.—Jocelyn

The Dead and the Dark by Courtney Gould

This book is about loneliness. It's about the loneliness of being a teenager, the loneliness queer folks experience, and the dark, unhinged things that loneliness can drive us to do. But it's also about love. It's about how parents will go to the ends of the earth and beyond for their children, how love can grow in the most inhospitable of locations, and how love can pierce through any darkness. Although the graphic depictions of hate and violence in this story can be disturbing, the spooky mystery will keep you coming back for more. —Jae
