Once Upon a Dream by Liz Braswell

What if the sleeping beauty never woke up?

It should be simple—a dragon defeated, a slumbering maiden, a prince poised to wake her. But when said prince falls asleep as soon as his lips meet the princess’, it is clear that this fairy tale is far from over.

With a desperate fairy’s last curse controlling her mind, Princess Aurora must escape from a different castle of thorns and navigate a dangerously magical landscape – created from her very own dreams.

Aurora isn’t alone – a charming prince is eager to join her quest, and old friends offer their help. But as Maleficent’s agents follow her every move, Aurora must discover who her true allies are and, moreover, who she truly is.

Time is running out. Will the sleeping beauty be able to wake herself up?

The Year We Fell Apart by Emily Martin

Few things come as naturally to Harper as epic mistakes. In the past year she was kicked off the swim team, earned a reputation as Carson High’s easiest hook-up, and officially became the black sheep of her family. But her worst mistake was destroying her relationship with her best friend, Declan.

Now, after two semesters of silence, Declan is home from boarding school for the summer. Everything about him is different—he’s taller, stronger…more handsome. Harper has changed, too, especially in the wake of her mom’s cancer diagnosis.

While Declan wants nothing to do with Harper, he’s still Declan, her Declan, and the only person she wants to talk to about what’s really going on. But he’s also the one person she’s lost the right to seek comfort from.

As their mutual friends and shared histories draw them together again, Harper and Declan must decide which parts of their past are still salvageable, and which parts they’ll have to let go of once and for all.

Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan

When Max receives a mysterious invite from the untraceable, epic prank-pulling Chaos Club, he has to ask: why him? After all, he’s Mr. 2.5 GPA, Mr. No Social Life. He’s Just Max. And his favorite heist movies have taught him this situation calls for Rule #4: Be suspicious. But it’s also his one shot to leave Just Max in the dust…

Yeah, not so much. Max and four fellow students-who also received invites-are standing on the newly defaced water tower when campus security “catches” them. Definitely a setup. And this time, Max has had enough. It’s time for Rule #7: Always get payback.

Rebel of the Sands (Rebel of the Sands #1) by Alwyn Hamilton

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mythical beasts still roam the wild and remote areas, and rumor has it that somewhere Djinn still perform their magic. For humans, it;s an unforgiving place, especially if you’re poor, orphaned, or female.

Amani Al-Hiza is all three.

She’s a gifted gunslinger with perfect aim, but she can’t shoot her way out of Dustwalk, the back country town where she’s destined to wind up wed or dead.

Then Amani meets Jin and with him finally has a chance to escape. But though she’s spent years dreaming of leaving Dustwalk, she never imagined she’d gallop away on a mythical horse-or that it would take a foreign fugitive to show her the heart of the desert she thought she knew…

If she waits any longer, it may be too late.
