Young Adult Suggested Reading
"Evan and Lucy, childhood best friends who grew apart after years of seeing one another only during Christmas break, begin a romance at age seventeen but his choice to mindlessly follow his father's plans for an Ivy League education rather than becoming the cartoonist he longs to be, and her more destructive choices in the wake of family problems, pull them apart."
"A thrilling fantasy set in the Arctic.
Accompanied by her daemon, Lyra Belacqua sets out to prevent her best friend and other kidnapped children from becoming the subject of gruesome experiments in the Far North."
"A cute holiday romance that includes ballet, babysitting, and the perfect Christmas setting...a ski resort!"
-Olivia, Teen Librarian.
