The Girl in the Headlines by Hannah Jayne
Andrea McNulty goes to sleep on her eighteenth birthday with a near-perfect life: she's a high school field hockey star, a doted-upon big sister, the beloved daughter of two happy parents. But when she wakes up in a motel room the next morning, unable to remember what happened the previous night and covered in blood, Andi is a fugitive.
According to the news, Andi's parents were brutally attacked in the middle of the night. Her father is dead, her mother is in a coma, her little brother Josh is missing--and Andi is the prime suspect. Terrified and on the run from the police, Andi teams up with Nate, the sympathetic boy working the motel's front desk, to find the real murderer. But while the police are getting further from the killer, the killer is getting closer to Andi--closer than she ever could have imagined.
Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World by Sarah Prager
World history has been made by countless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and otherwise queer people--and you've never heard of many of them. In Queer, There, and Everywhere, activist Sarah Prager gives voice to twenty-three people who invented, radicalized, and trailblazed. These inspiring true stories demonstrate how rich and varied gender and sexuality have always been in every culture, in every millennium. From long-ago heroes like the gender-ambiguous queen of Sweden and a transgender soldier who risked death fighting in the Civil War to modern figures like the transgender tennis player who won a court case to play as a woman and a drag queen who rallied against police brutality in San Francisco: not only have queer people always existed, they have thrived.
