How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran

Disillusioned teenager Johanna Morrigan boldly attempts to overhaul her image. Her story of self-reinvention is both hilarious and heartbreaking. It's heavy on the sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, but with a light touch and a healthy dose of self-awareness. Brassy and ballsy, perfect for a child of the 90s or anyone who has ever grappled with their self-image. - Kelly

No One is Coming to Save Us by Stephanie Powell Watts

As refreshing as a glass of sweet tea, this novel deftly reimagines the familiar American Dream story in a contemporary Southern town where an extended African-American family grapples with their own unrealized potential. Debut author Stephanie Powell Watts beautifully captures classic themes from The Great Gatsby and spins them into an updated tale that is both poignant and earnest. An absolutely timely read. - Kelly

Bird Box by Josh Malerman

A young mother embarks on a harrowing journey in a post-apocalyptic world to search for a safer place for her family. An unknowable evil lurks outside the window, and just one glimpse can lead to total madness — or a gruesome death. I read this in one sitting because I was too terrified to put it down. Malerman relentlessly ratchets up the tension. - Kelly
