Loveless has my entire heart! No one does YA quite like Alice Oseman. It’s hard to top her diverse casts of characters, relatability, and emphasis on inclusivity in all her books. Loveless follows Georgia, a young student starting university. Georgia has never been in love, had a crush, or even kissed another person. She loves romance novels, but is constantly wondering: “when will my own love story begin?” What follows is a stunning exploration of love and joy in all its forms, as Georgia comes to slowly discover and accept her identity with the help of her best friends. I adored this novel! ~ Reviewed by Madison Gallup

Maybe an Artist, a Graphic Memoir is a simple, but expressive and sweet memoir about how one person became the artist they are today. It was not an easy path, filled with boys, school, friendship, social themes, and siblings. And it is one that we can relate to. Montague added their delightful artwork to accompany the text. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

As twisted and heart-wrenching as one can expect from a book with such a foreboding title. The brutal continuation of family legacies steeped in magic and soaked in blood during which our dynamic cast of complex characters' unlikely alliances, betrayal, and sacrifice drive this story to its explosive conclusion. ~ Reviewed by Hannah Odasz

Eisner Award-winning wunderkind Tillie Walden brings her Miyazaki-influenced genius cartooning to the Walking Dead universe. Continuing the adventures of the incredibly well-developed main character from the Walking Dead adventure games, Clementine is a brutal zombie story about a group of teenagers attempting to build a sustainable life for themselves in the mountains of Vermont. Walden doesn't pull any punches, this is a violent and upsetting post-apocalypse comic that features harsh violence, hopeless situations, limb dismemberment, cannibalism, etc. Beautifully drawn in stark black and white, with relatable characters and a gripping narrative, Clementine is a must-read for fans of the genre. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

This book was heartbreakingly beautiful in the best way. I found myself swooning in some parts and sobbing like a complete idiot at others. Reading this felt like an escape that I didn't even know I needed until I opened the book.Vega is the last astronomer. The constellation tattooed on the back of Vega's neck makes her a target to those who believe she has the cure to consumption. However, what they don't know is Vega has been chosen to save the planet. ~ Reviewed by Kylie Thalheimer
