Title:  The Way You Make Me Feel
Author: Maurene Goo 
Publisher:  Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Release Date: May 8th 2018 

From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.

Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad’s business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind? 

With Maurene Goo's signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places you’d never thought to look.

Maurene Goo is one of my favorite authors. I've recently read I Believe In a Thing Called Love, and thought it was hilarious. My favorite book by Maurene Is Since You Asked and I can't wait to read her newest book.It sound lovely!!!

Title: Monday's Not Coming
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: June 5th, 2018

A gripping, relentless, and timely new novel from critically acclaimed author of Allegedly, Tiffany D. Jackson, about the complex mystery of one teenage girl’s disappearance and the traumatic effects of the truth.

Monday Charles is missing, and only Claudia seems to notice. Claudia and Monday have always been inseparable—more sisters than friends. So when Monday doesn’t turn up for the first day of school, Claudia’s worried. When she doesn’t show for the second day, or second week, Claudia knows that something is wrong. Monday wouldn’t just leave her to endure tests and bullies alone. Not after last year’s rumors and not with her grades on the line. Now Claudia needs her best—and only—friend more than ever. But Monday’s mother refuses to give Claudia a straight answer, and Monday’s sister April is even less help. 

As Claudia digs deeper into her friend’s disappearance, she discovers that no one seems to remember the last time they saw Monday. How can a teenage girl just vanish without anyone noticing that she’s gone? 

I am so in love with the cover, and this sounds like a ya mystery!! I need to know where is Monday? Why does no one seem to care that Monday's gone? This will be my first Tiffany D. Jackson book. But I definitely have Allegedly on my TBR 

Let us know what books you're waiting for!
