Award-winning author Elana
K. Arnold
‘s What
Girls Are Made Of
tackles the subject of a girl navigating
issues of sex, love, and body image. When Nina Faye was fourteen, her
mother told her there was no such thing as unconditional love. Nina
believed her. Now Nina will do anything for the boy she loves to prove
she’s worthy of him. But when he breaks up with her, Nina is lost.
Broken-hearted, Nina tries to figure out what the conditions of love
are. Carrie Mesrobian, author of Sex & Violence and Just a
Girl
, calls the title “a book that is fully girl, with all of the
gore and grace of growing up female exposed.”

Twenty-five campers are invited to spend a week at Camp So-and-So, a
lakeside retreat for girls. But this is no ordinary camp. Survival will
require courage, cunning, and perhaps even magic. Mary
McCoy
‘s Camp
So-and-So
has “strands of M. C. Escher, Joss Whedon, and Heathers,”
according to Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and
Death
.

Amber
J. Keyser
’s Pointe,
Claw
features the relationship between two best friends, one who
wants to be a professional ballerina and the other who realizes she is
turning into a bear. They each must confront society’s narrow definition
of what it means to be feminine and find a way to embrace the wildness
in themselves.

Splinter
by Sasha
Dawn
is the captivating story of a young girl’s investigation into
the disappearance of her mother. Sixteen-year-old Sami hasn’t seen her
mother in ten years—and neither has anyone else. Sami believes her
mother chose to abandon her and start a new life. But now, evidence has
emerged about another missing woman who used to be involved with Sami’s
dad. As Sami investigates, she’s forced to question everything she
thought she knew about her family.
