The Line
Courtney Brandt

Like any normal sixteen year old, Lucy Karate longs for the perfect junior year. She imagines herself having fun hanging out with friends, getting good grades, finally finding a boyfriend, and, above all, marching on The Battery.

What if Robin Hood wasn’t the man you thought him to be—what if he wasn’t a man at all?
Robin of Locksley is young, headstrong, and about to receive the worst birthday present of her life. Still struggling to define herself in a society that believes women are fit for little more than governing a household and bearing children, she balks at her father’s plans for her future, but the consequences of her rebellion prove deadly. Hunted by both her father and the Sheriff, Robin is forced to hide her identity and seek refuge as an outlaw in Sherwood Forest.


The Dirt
Lori Culwell
4+ star contemporary fiction
Lucy Whitley cannot wait to get out of Palm Desert. It’s not a place for a frizzy-haired science nerd, particularly when her fashion-obsessed older sister Sloane is the head of a clique of pretty girls who rule the school – and practically the whole town. Fortunately, life is about to change forever.
