None of the Above
Young Adult

It all started at Homecoming. On top of being an amazing hurdler with a full scholarship awaiting, Kristin is voted Homecoming Queen alongside her amazing boyfriend, Sam. After the dance, Kristin decides she’s finally ready to take things further with Sam. Everything was shaping up to be perfect, until things go wrong. A follow-up doctor’s visit reveals the truth: Kristin was born intersex. She looked and felt like a girl, but her chromosomes said otherwise. When her secret is leaked to the entire school, Kristin’s world is torn apart, and she must find the strength to find out who she really is. Gregorio’s timely novel explores gender identity in a way that perfectly blends issues dealing with sexism, bullying, and understanding.

Saenz, Benjamin Alire(2009)Recently Added Review
Last Night I Sang to the Monster
Young Adult

Zach should be in high school right now, preparing to graduate and head to college. Although quiet and a bit melancholy, he’s a promising student with a bright, inquisitive mind. Instead, Zach is in a rehabilitation facility with no recollection of what landed him there. He remembers drinking a lot, maybe too much at times, but his father did the same thing and this never happened to him. Zach knows something terrible must have happened, but with pushy therapists and roommates who are too genuinely nice to him, he finds himself pushing his memories away from him. Sáenz’s simply written, yet poetic novel, is a critically acclaimed story of brokenness and redemption.

Laughing at My Nightmare

Laughing at My Nightmare
Young Adult

Shane uses humor to confront common misconceptions and difficult situations. Because of his spinal muscular atrophy, he’s is reliant on others for everything physical, but he definitely doesn`t suffer from any mental or mood deficiencies. He’s a typical young adult in nearly every way- so the movie version of this book would probably be rated `R` for the frank discussions of bodily functions and sexual activity, and for a mild sprinkling of profanity. Not only is this book full of laughs; it’s also full of triumphs. Shane talks openly about his prognosis, and how he’s defiantly remaining very actively involved in life. He is determined to experience everything possible, including road trips and first drinks. This book will have you laughing out loud!

Sex and Violence: A Novel

Mesrobian, Carrie(2013)Recently Added Review
Sex and Violence: A Novel
Young Adult

Not every teenager enjoys regularly moving from state to state, but Evan Carter knows it has its perks. He can sleep with girls, delete their numbers, and move on. “No strings attached” is his policy, and he’s never had to deal with consequences. Not until now. After messing with the wrong girl at the wrong time, Evan wakes up in a hospital with a broken nose, a missing spleen, and a destroyed sense of peace. His father quickly moves him to the family cabin in a remote yet overly-friendly Michigan town, and steps back to see if Evan can conquer his demons. A William C. Morris YA Debut nominee, Sex & Violence explores deep psychological issues with an honesty that’s simultaneously brutal and beautiful.
