Murder mysteries and cheerleaders are hearts that beat strong in both of these stories. Kara Thomas sets up a beautifully juicy and suspenseful experience as readers follow small-town Monica as she realizes the 5-year- old tragedy of the Sunnybrooke High's cheerleading squad, which included her own sister, isn't yet over. What can history tell Monica about her present, and how is she entangled in all the morbid drama? Get ready for a familiar adrenaline rush!

On My Block can bring *all* the feels ranging from eye-watering laughter to utter disbelief in the matter of a single episode. We are sure this classic by S. E. Hinton will have a similar effect. You will be stepping into the life of Ponyboy as he navigates a society split in half by two gangs: the Greasers and the Socs. The themes of love and friendship contrasted with violence and inequality make this book an emotional roller coaster you won't want off of.

The A-List by Zoey Dean is your first-class plane ticket from the preppy Upper East Side to the glamorous Beverly Hills. Our main character, Anna Percy, is on her way to live with her father for the rest of the school year while her mother is away in Europe. Before she even lands, Anna is thrown into the world of the A-listers with golden opportunities, and the drama begins. Would Anna and Blair be the best of friends or the worst of enemies? You decide!

Something wicked this way comes! In this dark and twisty novel by Lily Anderson, Wiccan Mila Flores is devastated when she's told her best friend was allegedly part of a suicde pact along with Fairmount High's two mean girls. Mila knows these allegations couldn't be further from the truth, so her solution is simple: resurrect the girls and get answers. But Sabrina taught us that resurrections never work out the way we want them to...

In Girl Meets World, Riley and her friends were all going through the awkward but super relatable middle school phase, struggling with crushes, friendships and having confidence in themselves. Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli is the perfect coming-of-age story to complement it because it shares a similar message: you are not alone. (P.S. The book is being adapted into a Disney+ original series this year. Read it before you see it!)
