The Distance from A to Z
by Natalie Blitt

This full-length novel by debut author Natalie Blitt is a pitch-perfect blend of Stephanie Perkins and Miranda Kenneally that proves the age-old adage: opposites attract.

Seventeen-year-old Abby has only one goal for her summer: to make sure she is fluent in French — well, that, and to get as far away from baseball and her Cubs — obsessed family as possible. A summer of culture and language, with no sports in sight.

That turns out to be impossible, though, because her French partner is the exact kind of boy she was hoping to avoid. Eight weeks. 120 hours of class. 80 hours of conversation practice with someone who seems to wear baseball caps and jerseys every day.

But Zeke in French is a different person than Zeke in English. And Abby can't help but fall for him, hard. As Abby begins to suspect that Zeke is hiding something, she has to decide if bridging the gap between who she is and who he is is worth the risk.

The Seventh Miss Hatfield
by Anna Caltabiano

Romantic and action packed, The Seventh Miss Hatfield is a 300-page novel about a young girl with the ability to travel through time — and the secret she must protect. With an epic romance that cannot be stopped by the bounds of time, as well as deeper questions regarding immortality, The Seventh Miss Hatfield is the beginning of a series perfect for fans of love stories such as The Time Traveler's Wife as well as historical fiction with a fantastical twist like The Diviners by Libba Bray.

As a child, Cynthia was lured into the home of her mysterious neighbor, Miss Hatfield. There, Miss Hatfield tells her they are both part of a long line of immortal women able to travel through time. But this gift might be more of a curse, and it comes with a price. Cynthia is beginning to lose herself: she is becoming the next Miss Hatfield.

But before the process goes too far, Cynthia must travel back in time to turn-of-the-century New York and steal a painting. This picture might provide a clue to the whereabouts of the source of immortality, a clue that must remain hidden from the world.

Her assignment isn't as easy as it appears, especially when Cynthia meets an attractive yet sullen boy named Henley. As their friendship grows into something stronger, Cynthia is hesitant to leave. But how can she stay with the boy she cares for when she must return to her own time before the time travel has a fatal effect on her body? And would she rather stay and die in love or leave and live alone?

And who is the mysterious stranger who shadows her from place to place? A hunter for the secret of immortality — or someone who has already found it?

Exit Stage Left
by Gail Nall

In this funny and sweet digital-original novel perfect for fans of Fame, Casey works to find a new passion after her dreams of becoming a Broadway star are ruined.

Casey Fitzgerald has always been an actress. She's known it was her destiny ever since she snagged the role of "apple" in her kindergarten's production of The Food Pyramid. But when she doesn't get the lead in her performing arts high school's production of The Sound of Music, she begins to question everything. Not getting the lead means no recommendations, and no recommendations means she can kiss good-bye any chance of getting a scholarship to the prestigious New York College of Performing Arts.

After some soul searching and some wise words from her friend Harrison, Casey decides to totally reinvent herself. She's already ditched her on-again off-again boyfriend Trevor and is interested in the new boy at school, so why not start fresh with everything? But every new destiny she tries doesn't seem quite right. And when her best friend, Amanda, who did get the lead, starts hanging out with Trevor, Casey's not sure if she'll ever be able to leave the drama behind.

The Map to the Stars
by Jen Malone

Can one down-to-earth girl plus a very famous boy and a whole lot of paparazzi ever add up to a perfect Hollywood ending?

Seventeen-year-old Annie Shelton isn't sure why her mom thinks moving to Hollywood will allow them to escape the drama of their small-time life in Georgia, but she's along for the ride. When Annie's mom snags a gig as makeup artist to a teen movie idol and finagles a spot for Annie to accompany her on his European promotional tour, Annie's pretty sure she'll be fangirling over architectural sights rather than teen heartthrob Graham Cabot.

But then of course she actually meets him. As Graham and Annie fall for each other in the most romantic cities in the world, Annie realizes that this turn of events may not be quite as glamorous as she thought. Instead of red carpets and celebrity couple names, they are navigating a minefield of keeping secrets from Graham's fans, overprotective assistant, stage "momager," and beefy bodyguard. And when the paparazzi make an appearance, Annie has to decide whether their love is worth the harsh glare of the flashbulb.

The Jock and the Fat Chick
by Nicole Winters

No one ever said high school was easy. In this hilarious and heartwarming debut, one high school senior has to ask himself how much he's willing to give up in order to fit in.

Kevin seems to have it all: he's popular, good looking, and on his way to scoring a college hockey scholarship. However, he's keeping two big secrets. The first is that he failed an assignment and is now forced to take the most embarrassing course ever — domestic tech. The second is that he is falling for his domestic tech classmate, Claire.

As far as Kevin is concerned, Claire does have it all: she's funny, smart, beautiful, and confident. But she's off-limits. Because Kevin knows what happens when someone in his group dares to date a girl who isn't a cheerleader, and there's no way he is going to put himself — or Claire — through that.

But steering clear of the girl of his dreams is a lot harder than Kevin thought... especially when a cooking project they are paired together for provides the perfect opportunity for things to heat up between them outside the classroom....

The Time of the Clockmaker
by Anna Caltabiano

The Time of the Clockmaker, the sequel to The Seventh Miss Hatfield, is set in the lush court of Henry VIII and continues Rebecca's romantic and action-packed time-traveling adventures. With an epic romance that cannot be stopped by the bounds of time as well as deeper questions regarding immortality, this is perfect for fans of love stories such as The Time Traveler's Wife, as well as historical fiction with a fantastical twist, like Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers.

Cynthia, who is now known only as the seventh Rebecca Hatfield, has settled in to the regular routine of traveling with the sixth Miss Hatfield. But when Rebecca's mentor is shockingly killed in front of her, Rebecca must flee the place and time she knows. She has lost her family, her dearest love, and her ability to live a normal life. All she has left is the gift — or curse — of immortality, and the bizarre clock that allows her to travel in time.

Just when Rebecca thinks she might be safe, she is attacked too. The mysterious black-clad figure steals the clock, but not before it transports them to a new time: Tudor England. Without her clock, Rebecca is stranded in the past. Alone, without friends or resources, she must find a way to survive in the beautiful — but dangerous — court of Henry VIII.

And what of her love, Henley, a boy Rebecca met in another time and place, but whose ghostly figure follows Rebecca wherever she goes, even when she begins a whirlwind romance with a dashing apprentice to the king's alchemist?

The mysterious attacker — someone who seems to possess the same powers as Rebecca — could be anyone at the lavish court. Can Rebecca escape him and find a way home? Would that mean once again sacrificing her heart for the sake of keeping the secret of immortality safe?
