Cydavia, Kaylee, Lauren, and Molly


Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna has the perfect life—the perfect job, perfect best friend, and perfect (almost) boyfriend. But, all that changes when she is shipped off to boarding school in Paris. Then she meets Etienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, and beautiful; he has the total package… and a serious girlfriend. But in Paris, anything can happen…

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Eleanor and Park were polar opposites, but when they fell in love, how could the star-crossed lovers ever live without each other?

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The Garretts and The Reeds don’t associate with each other. Ever. But when Samantha Reed falls hard for Jase Garrett, she is forced to keep her boyfriend a secret from her cold and calculating mother. When her mother finds out, Samantha is left tail spinning with the question of which perfect family she should choose.

Winger by Andrew Smith
Fourteen-year-old, Ryan Dean West, grapples with living in the dorm designed for the troublemakers of his prestigious boarding school, falling for his female best friend who thinks of him as just a kid, and playing wing on the Varsity rugby team with some of his frightening new dorm-mates.
