Fangirl by Rainbow
Rainbow Rowell’s book Eleanor & Park,
so we just knew this book was going to be a page-turner, too. In Fangirl, college freshman Cath has been
a mega fan all of her life. She dresses up for movie premieres, reads like
there is no tomorrow and spends tons of time online writing fan fiction. But when
she starts school, she soon finds out that college writing is a whole new ball
game—especially when you have a professor who hates fan fiction.
Grab the book here!
TTYL by Lauren
This has long
been a fave of ours. Three BFFs, “Snow Angel,” “mad maddie” and “zoegirl”,
spill it all in this book made up entirely of emails, texts and IMs. With
convos about clothes, boys, bodies, and inside jokes, all teenage girls will completely
understand what these three pals are gabbing about—LOLs and all.
iBoy by Kevin
After a crazy
collision, bits and pieces of an iPhone make their way into Tom’s brain, giving
him some pretty impressive powers. As if that wasn’t enough trouble already, Tom
must figure out if he’s going to get back at the London gangsters who hurt the
girl he loves or just let the conflict die.
Gimme A Call by
This novel is
for all you cell phone addicts! The main character, 17-year-old Devi, doesn’t
exactly have a picture perfect life. She’s boyfriendless, friendless and her
GPA is far from a 4.0. Then she drops her cell in a fountain and it starts to
go haywire—and will only call her 14-year-old self. Devi uses this as an
opportunity to right her wrongs and help her younger self make all the right
choices instead of all of the wrong ones.
Roomies by Sara
Zarr and Tara Altebrando
Moving away from home and into your first college dorm is
incredibly stressful (trust us, we know from experience). But it’s even more
nerve wracking when you don’t know who your roomie is. That’s why east coast babe Elizabeth
emailed west coast girlie Lauren when they found out they would be rooming
together their first year of college. Over emails, the girls learn more and
more about each other and develop a deep, long distance connection that only
college roommates could form.
Free to Fall by Lauren Miller
Imagine living in a world without Apple products. Or a world
where you’re not able to Google the answer to anything you want. That’s exactly
the world Rory Vaughn lives in. Fast-forward to the future and those giant
corps we know and love have been replaced by Gnosis. Fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent aren’t going to want to miss this book about rebellion, heart vs. head and a high tech app that makes decision-making super easy, or so she thought….
