Enola Holmes: The Case of the Left-Handed Lady
by Serena Blasco and Nancy Springer
Hiding from Sherlock and her other brother, Mycroft, who want to place her in a boarding school following their mother's disappearance, Enola has reinvented herself as Ivy Meshle, secretary to the fictitious Dr. Ragostin, specialist in finding missing persons. Her new client? None other than Sherlock's friend, Dr. John Watson! His mission: to employ Dr. Ragostin to find the missing Enola! She decides to take the case, only so she can keep tabs on Sherlock's every move to locate her.
Yet Ivy Meshle is just one of Enola's disguises. In her search for a missing teenager, the Lady Cecily Alistair, she alternately poses as Lady Ragostin, wife of her non-existent employer, and as "Sister," the kindly nun who braves the dangerous nighttime alleys to bring comfort to the homeless. All the time she and Sherlock play a game of cat and mouse.

Shatter the Sky
by Rebecca Kim Wells
Simon & Schuster Books for You
Raised among the ruins of a conquered mountain nation, Maren dreams only of sharing a quiet life with her girlfriend Kaia—until the day Kaia is abducted by the Aurati, prophetic agents of the emperor, and forced to join their ranks. Desperate to save her, Maren hatches a plan to steal one of the emperor’s coveted dragons and storm the Aurati stronghold.
If Maren is to have any hope of succeeding, she must become an apprentice to the Aromatory—the emperor’s mysterious dragon trainer. But Maren is unprepared for the dangerous secrets she uncovers: rumors of a lost prince, a brewing rebellion, and a prophecy that threatens to shatter the empire itself. Not to mention the strange dreams she’s been having about a beast deep underground…
With time running out, can Maren survive long enough to rescue Kaia from impending death? Or could it be that Maren is destined for something greater than she could have ever imagined?

The Merciful Crow
by Margaret Owen
Henry Holt and Co.
One way or another, we always feed the crows.
A future chieftain
Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.
A fugitive prince
When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses―and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.
A too-cunning bodyguard
Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?

The Year They Fell
by David Kreizman
Josie, Jack, Archie, Harrison, and Dayana were inseparable as preschoolers. But that was before high school, before parties and football and getting into the right college. Now, as senior year approaches, they're basically strangers to each other.
Until they’re pulled back together when their parents die in a plane crash. These former friends are suddenly on their own. And they’re the only people who can really understand how that feels.
To survive, the group must face the issues that drove them apart, reveal secrets they’ve kept since childhood, and discover who they’re meant to be. And in the face of public scrutiny, they’ll confront mysteries their parents left behind―betrayals that threaten to break the friendships apart again.
