The Accident Season - Moira Fowley-Doyle

Every October, tragedy strikes in Cara’s family. They have suffered numerous injuries as well as deaths—all during The Accident Season (Kathy Dawson, $17.99). Now that the tenth month of this year has arrived, Cara and her sister, ex-stepbrother, and best friend are once again in danger. Precautions must be taken: Mom has them wear an extra layer of gloves, and she bubble-wraps all the hard edges in the house. The knives are locked away and the gas is turned off. Meanwhile, the teens ask themselves about their friend Elsie, why she has disappeared from school, and what she has to do with this accident season. Moïra Fowley-Doyle combines the mystical with the paranormal to thrilling effect in her young adult debut. Ages 14-17

The Rest of Us Just Live Here - Patrick Ness

Mikey and his friends are trying to survive the stress of senior year, graduate, and get out of town before their parents crush their happiness. Being a teenager is hard. It’s even harder when the special “indie kids” at school are fighting an immortal power hell-bent on destroying the world while The Rest of Us Just Live Here (Harper Teen, $17.99). “Not everyone has to be the Chosen One,” and no one is more aware of that than Mikey, who is desperately trying to hold onto his friends and survive day-to-day struggles. Patrick Ness captures the difficulties of being a teenager while reminding readers that you don’t always have to save the world to be significant. Ages 14-18
