The Torres sisters dream of escape. Escape from their needy and despotic widowed father, and from their San Antonio neighborhood, full of old San Antonio families and all the traditions and expectations that go along with them. In the summer after her senior year of high school, Ana, the oldest sister, falls to her death from her bedroom window. A year later, her three younger sisters, Jessica, Iridian, and Rosa, are still consumed by grief and haunted by their sister’s memory. Their dream of leaving Southtown now seems out of reach. But then strange things start happening around the house: mysterious laughter, mysterious shadows, mysterious writing on the walls. The sisters begin to wonder if Ana really is haunting them, trying to send them a message—and what exactly she’s trying to say.   In a stunning follow-up to her National Book Award–longlisted novel All the Wind in the World, Samantha Mabry weaves an aching, magical novel that is one part family drama, one part ghost story, and one part love story.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post meets Everything Leads to You in this queer young adult novel.

Taylor Garland's good looks have earned her the admiration of everyone in her small town. She's homecoming queen, the life of every party, and she's on every boy's most-wanted list.

People think Taylor is living the dream, and assume she'll stay in town and have kids with the homecoming king--maybe even be a dental hygienist if she's super ambitious. But Taylor is actually desperate to leave home, and she hates the smell of dentists' offices. Also? She's completely in love with her best friend, Susan.

Senior year is almost over, and everything seems perfect. Now Taylor just has to figure out how to throw it all away.

Lindsay Sproul's debut is full of compelling introspection and painfully honest commentary on what it's like to be harnessed to a destiny you never wanted.

Hungry for humor? Tuck into these darkly funny horror stories starring creepy-cute food folk, presented in a photographed diorama-comic format that brings the stories to colorfully disturbing life. Inspired by Tales from the Crypt and perfect fare for readers of All My Friends are Dead and Awkward Yeti.
From an ice cream cone who makes a deal with the devil('s food cake), to a moldy strawberry who wants one last dip in a bowl of cream, Bites of Terror offers ten macabre, hilarious tales featuring adorable anthropomorphic food characters caught in horror story scenarios complete with twist endings. Each tale is introduced by your horrible host, the Cake Creeper, a partially eaten groom's cake with an agenda of his own. And because presentation is so important for every meal, the stories are told in "diorama comic" format: they read like a comic or graphic novel, but instead of drawings, the images are photographs of sculpted characters, looking good enough to eat and staged on custom-made sets full of fascinating details. You'll be tempted to reach into the pages and save the cute food people from their fates...but you can't. In the tradition of Tales from the Crypt and other classic horror comics, Bites of Terror proves that horror and humor are a tasty combination.
