Like a Love Story

by Abdi Nazemian
An Iranian youth who hides his sexual orientation from his family, an openly gay photographer and an aspiring fashion designer with an HIV-positive uncle fall in love and find their voices as activists during the height of the AIDS crisis in New York City. 

Patron Saints of Nothing

by Randy Ribay

When seventeen-year-old Jay Reguero learns his Filipino cousin and former best friend, Jun, was murdered as part of President Duterte’s war on drugs, he flies to the Philippines to learn more.

All the Bright Places

by Jennifer Niven

All the Bright Places centers around two teens named Violet and Theodore (known mostly as, Finch). Violet is a popular cheerleader and Finch is an outcast at their school. Both of them are emotionally damaged (depressed, bipolar, suffering survivor’s guilt), but their stresses lead to newfound love and the hope of healing. This tearjerker is on the darker side of YA romance, but is incredibly powerful. A new movie adaptation, starring Elle Fanning as Violet and Justice Smith as Finch, comes out later this year.

The Sun is Also a Star

by Nicola Yoon

The Sun is Also a Star is a contemporary YA classic with a movie adaptation that just hit theaters! The story focuses on two young adults who fall in love in New York City just as one of them faces the threat of deportation. Fans of Nicola Yoon’s work (like Everything, Everything) will find a lot to love here too. Yoon’s book is also one of the Summer Reading options for 8th Graders leaving Sage Park and going into 9th Grade!
