The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter narrates, speaking in an authentic and moving way about the difficulty in reconciling what she knows to be true about herself, her loving family, and her friends with the way others view them. “Wake up wake up,” said the poet Rumi. That’s what this book does for its readers. Ages 14 and up. - Ga

Landscape with Invisible Hand by M. T. Anderson

The aliens have come and they really aren’t impressed by us. They set their alien tech to doing all the jobs we used to do. While the remaining humans scrabble for economic survival, the vuvv settle in to consume “classic earth culture”: doo-wop music, 1950s gee whizz slang, and undying true love. Adam and his girlfriend Chloe make it big when they start broadcasting a pay-per-minute reality show of their romance—but with great publicity comes the risk of great catastrophe. This fierce satire sucks you in and won’t let go till the last page. National Book Award winner M. T. Anderson hits another one out of the park. Ages 14 and up. - Tera

American Street by Ibi Aanu Zoboi

Born in the U.S., having lived her 17 years in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Fabiola Toussaint finds herself with her manman’s sister’s family in Detroit at the ironic intersection of American Street and Joy Road. This chilling, evocative, achingly tender, remarkable debut by Zoboi is my favorite YA novel this year. For young adults and adults. - Ga

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

It begins with a terrorist attack on San Francisco – but this book is about the resistance, led by a teenage boy caught in the aftermath, to the totalitarian-like crackdown of Homeland Security that follows. Doctorow has unabashedly laced a manual for modern-day resistance against a surveillance state in a fast-paced exciting story full of hope and heart. - Jocelyn

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

During the Second World War, the Russians torpedoed and sunk the Wilhelm Gustloff with 10,582 passengers on board. More than 9400 died in the cold Baltic Sea, including 5000 children. This little-known maritime disaster is impeccably researched and viscerally conveyed through the stories of four adults, slowly revealed in alternating chapters in Sepetys’ haunting historical fiction. Why do we read about disasters? Perhaps to illumine our character—our most base and our best tendencies. And because it is important here, as well, to not forget. Ages 14 & up.  —GA

Merrow by Ananda Braxton-Smith

Set in the 11th century, at a time when a 12-year-old girl is almost an adult, Neen Marrey lives with her stoic but not unloving auntie Ushags on Carrick Island. Neen is always asking her aunt for stories about her long-dead mother, Ushags’ sister, who perhaps was a merrow, a selkie. This is a fairy tale woven into a novel—the language is glittery with precision, yet warm and lyrical as song. Ages 13 & up.  —GA
