    Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

    We heart Rainbow Rowell’s book Eleanor & Park, so we just knew this book was going to be a page-turner, too. In Fangirl, college freshman Cath has been a mega fan all of her life. She dresses up for movie premieres, reads like there is no tomorrow and spends tons of time online writing fan fiction. But when she starts school, she soon finds out that college writing is a whole new ball game—especially when you have a professor who hates fan fiction.

    TTYL by Lauren Myracle

    This has long been a fave of ours. Three BFFs, “Snow Angel,” “mad maddie” and “zoegirl”, spill it all in this book made up entirely of emails, texts and IMs. With convos about clothes, boys, bodies, and inside jokes, all teenage girls will completely understand what these three pals are gabbing about—LOLs and all.

    Gimme A Call by Sarah Mlynowski

    This novel is for all you cell phone addicts! The main character, 17-year-old Devi, doesn’t exactly have a picture perfect life. She’s boyfriendless, friendless and her GPA is far from a 4.0. Then she drops her cell in a fountain and it starts to go haywire—and will only call her 14-year-old self. Devi uses this as an opportunity to right her wrongs and help her younger self make all the right choices instead of all of the wrong ones.

    Free to Fall by Lauren Miller

    Imagine living in a world without Apple products. Or a world where you’re not able to Google the answer to anything you want. That’s exactly the world Rory Vaughn lives in. Fast-forward to the future and those giant corps we know and love have been replaced by Gnosis. Fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent aren’t going to want to miss this book about rebellion, heart vs. head and a high tech app that makes decision-making super easy, or so she thought….
