“strands of M. C. Escher, Joss Whedon, and Heathers”

Award-winning author Elana K. Arnold's What Girls Are Made Of tackles the subject of a girl navigating issues of sex, love, and body image. When Nina Faye was fourteen, her mother told her there was no such thing as unconditional love. Nina believed her. Now Nina will do anything for the boy she loves to prove she's worthy of him. But when he breaks up with her, Nina is lost. Broken-hearted, Nina tries to figure out what the conditions of love are. Carrie Mesrobian, author of Sex & Violence and Just a Girl, calls the title "a book that is fully girl, with all of the gore and grace of growing up female exposed."

Twenty-five campers are invited to spend a week at Camp So-and-So, a lakeside retreat for girls. But this is no ordinary camp. Survival will require courage, cunning, and perhaps even magic. Mary McCoy's Camp So-and-So has "strands of M. C. Escher, Joss Whedon, and Heathers," according to Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death.

Amber J. Keyser’s Pointe, Claw features the relationship between two best friends, one who wants to be a professional ballerina and the other who realizes she is turning into a bear. They each must confront society's narrow definition of what it means to be feminine and find a way to embrace the wildness in themselves.

Splinter by Sasha Dawn is the captivating story of a young girl's investigation into the disappearance of her mother. Sixteen-year-old Sami hasn't seen her mother in ten years—and neither has anyone else. Sami believes her mother chose to abandon her and start a new life. But now, evidence has emerged about another missing woman who used to be involved with Sami's dad. As Sami investigates, she's forced to question everything she thought she knew about her family.
