Wake the Bones by Elizabeth Kilcoyne
The sleepy little farm that Laurel Early grew up on has awakened. The woods are shifting, the soil is dead under her hands, and her bone pile just stood up and walked away.
After dropping out of college, all she wanted was to resume her life as a tobacco hand and taxidermist and try not to think about the boy she can't help loving. Instead, a devil from her past has returned to court her, as he did her late mother years ago. Now, Laurel must unravel her mother's terrifying legacy and tap into her own innate magic before her future and the fate of everyone she loves is doomed.
Muddy People: A Muslim Coming of Age by Sara El Sayed
Sara feels out of place. When she was only six years old, Sara and her family emigrated from Egypt to a new life on the other side of the world. Sara grows up in a house with a lot of rules--but the people around her sometimes have different rules, and very different expectations. In this hilarious and heartwarming memoir about family and identity, Sara learns to find her way in a world that doesn't always understand her. She discovers that some friends are better than others, that only some crushes are worthy of her time, and that her parents don't always know what's best for her, despite how much they love her. Funny, compelling, and deeply moving, Muddy Poeple will resonate with anyone who's ever struggled to figure out where they belong.
