Carry On: the rise and fall of Simon Snow 
by Rainbow Rowell 

A modern fantasy, set in an England where magic is real and magicians live among the Normals, Carry On is the story of Simon Snow and his friends. Simon is The Chosen One, prophesized to save the magical world from an unknown threat. Basilton Grimm-Pitch is his nemesis and roommate at Watford School of Magicks. Despite years of trying to do each other bodily harm, Simon and Baz team up with their friends Agatha and Penelope to save the world. Besides being a roller coaster ride of good versus evil, Carry On is, at its heart, a love story between two boys who have grown up thinking they hate each other. This book has everything you need for a good time--mystery, magic, monsters, and romance.  

If you like to listen to your books instead, the audio version is excellent!

Juliet Takes a Breath: The Graphic Novel 
written by Gabby Rivera, Art by Celia Moscote 

Juliet has to get out of the Bronx. After coming out to her mom and the rest of her family, Juliet embarks on a spiritual adventure to the west coast to help discover what it means to be Puerto Rican, lesbian, and out. But interning with her favorite feminist writer, Harlowe Brisbane, might not be all that she bargained for. This is a really terrific queer coming-of-age story that explores race, identity and being true to yourself. The best book I didn't know that I needed to read!
