Even If the Sky Falls – Mia Garcia

Even If the Sky Falls – Mia Garcia

The Last Time We Were Us – Leah Konen

The Last Time We Were Us – Leah Konen

 Oh look at how pretty that cover is. And the synopsis, a bad boy returns and turns the summer of a girl upside down. So dreamy, it has to be good. Right? It should be amazing, please be amazing. I have so much hope… But sadly no, The Last Time We […]

The Star-Touched Queen – Roshani Chokshi

The Last Boy and Girl in the World – Siobhan Vivian

The Last Boy and Girl in the World – Siobhan Vivian

The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian was an interesting meld of teen love story, family drama and eminent domain. “What?” you say. “A YA book about the government claiming land?” Yup, and it was a very interesting way to look at where you live and […]
