A trio of reads for young adults


The YA market is growing massively (thanks TikTok) … these three are worth reading

Lies We Sing to the Sea by Sarah Underwood

“Gorgeous, tragic, and timeless, Underwood’s LIES WE SING TO THE SEA makes an age-old story feel new again. This is Greek tragedy at its best: sweeping in scope yet deeply intimate in characterization. This book will break your heart” — Grace Li


Catfish Rolling by Clara Kumagai

Stylish, accomplished and thought-provoking story-telling explores themes of identity, philosophy, science, ecology, life, loss and love. For 14+


The Way I Used to Be by  Amber Smith

All Eden wants is to rewind the clock. To live that day again. She would do everything differently. Not laugh at his jokes or ignore the way he was looking at her that night. And she would definitely lock her bedroom door.
