    Shirley-Anne McMillan's Grapefruit Moon  is a gripping coming-of-age story with dual narrators.Wealthy, popular Charlotte and quiet, working class Drew couldn’t be more different, but both face a common enemy at Cooke’s Academy in the form of the Stewards – an elite group of students whose power to manipulate school culture is feared by pupils and teachers alike. Drew, a newcomer to Cooke’s, must navigate the strict codes of masculinity laid down by the Stewards in order to have a hope of moving on to university, while Charlotte dreams of speaking freely about the constraints and abuses of the culture which is propelling her towards a life she’s not sure she wants. 

    Louise Finch's Yoto Carnegie Medal shortlisted The Eternal Return of Clara Hart is a sensational YA time-loop tale about toxic masculinity and gendered violence. Russian Doll meets Promising Young Woman. A flicker in the fabric of time gives Spence a second chance. And a third. How many times will he watch the same girl die?

    Helena Close's Things I Know is hard-hitting YA exploring suicide, mental illness and recovery. Saoirse can't wait to leave school – but just before the Leaving Cert her ex-boyfriend dies by suicide. Everyone blames Saoirse, and her rumbling anxieties spiral out of control. Saoirse finds herself flailing in swirling waters that threaten to suck her into the depths. No-one can save her – not her lovely nan; not the gorgeous boy who tries to love her; and certainly not her cheap-wisdom counsellor. Can Saoirse, against all odds, rescue the self she used to know?
