Nicole's New Friend (Book 3)
Vineet Siddhartha, Dawn Brotherton
Synopsis:

Nicole loves spending time playing softball with her friends on the Lady Tigers Fastpitch Softball Team. At first, Nicole gets along really well with all the other players, and they have lots of fun competing together. But things start to change when Coach Kory introduces Diana, a new player trying out for the team.
Nicole immediately tries to welcome Diana and make her feel like part of the team. This plan backfires, however, when Diana responds to every one of Nicole’s attempts with a snide comment or rude eye roll. Diana seems to think she is better than everyone else, and by the end of practice, everyone has heard or been the victim of one of Diana’s mean comments. Nicole tries to ignore the remarks, but things begin to escalate when Diana has a pool party and only invites part of the team. Is Diana purposefully trying to split the team in half? Will Nicole be able to pull it back together in time?

Lowly
Laura Angaroni
Synopsis:

I'm Lola, and I thought this year would be different. Just for once, I wanted to be a glass-half-full kind of girl for. It's 1981, and nice girls don't curse. But the Demented Duo has been harassing me since middle school--cutting down my looks, my Christianity, my virginity. How am I supposed to control my anger when everyone at Sunset High School seems like they're out to get me? They'll embarrass me about anything.

And Then George strides in, and like magic, everything is better.

If only it lasted.

How will I ever clean up my mess and make amends? Can anyone still love me?

"Identity. Belonging. Significance. Lowly gives us a deep glance into the world of adolescence and bullying with grit and grace."

Nature's Confession
JL Morin
Synopsis: The epic tale of two teens in a fight to save a warming planet...the universe...and their love. A cli-fi quest to outsmart polluters, full of romance, honour and adventure. 
A Top 10  Best Science Fiction bookBest Climate and Environmental Fiction bookLitPick Award winnerIncluded in "12 Works of Climate Fiction Everyone Should Read"
'Top Fiction Read' of the YearNew York Book Festival Honorable Mention
An excerpt received an Eco-Fiction Story Contest Honorable Mention
"Honestly, it's not my fault.  Humans were polluting the planet to desolation.  What else could I do?  I had to save her. " 
When a smart-mouthed, mixed-race teen wonders why the work that needs to be done pays nothing compared to the busywork glorified on holovision news, the search for answers takes him on the wildest journey of anyone's lifetime. With the girl of his dreams, he inadvertently invents living computers. Just as the human race allows corporations to pollute Earth into total desolation, institute martial law and enslave humanity, the two teens set out to save civilization. Can they thwart polluters of Earth and other fertile planets? The heroes come into their own in different kinds of relationships in this diverse, multi-cultural romance. Along the way, they enlist the help of female droid Any Gynoid, who uncovers cutting-edge scientific mysteries. Their quest takes them through the Big Bang and back. Will Starliament tear them from the project and unleash 'intelligent' life's habitual pollution, or will youth lead the way to a new way of coexisting with Nature?
Nature's Confession couldn't be more timely, just as the IMF reveals that governments spend $5.3 trillion on fossil fuel subsidies every year, after COP 21 climate decisions in Paris, and the largest climate change march in world history when world leaders converged for an emergency UN Climate Summit in New York City. With illustrations and topics for discussion at the back of the book, JL Morin entertains questions about busywork; economic incentives to pollute; sustainable energy; exploitation; cyborgs; the sanctity of Nature; and many kinds of relationships in this diverse, multi-cultural romance.
