Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan
Jossie lives in a world of translation.  She has to translate what her friends are speaking in her high school, she has to translate what her college classes are teaching her, and she has to translate what her family is saying without saying at all.  But something she never thought she’d have to translate?  Love.

Enchanted by Althea Kontis

A richly woven retelling of fairy tales in a story both lyrical and mesmerizing.  Sunday Woodcutter is not easily wooed but when she meets a Frog, friendship blossoms, and then love.  Curses are easy, but love?  That’s another story altogether--and stories are Sunday’s bread and butter.
