BOOKS WE LOVE: Noggin by John Corey Whaley (above, posing with the cutout of his book’s cover at Skylight Books in Los Angeles)
 Travis Coates gets something many people only dream of: a second chance at life. But it turns out when your head is cryogenically frozen for five years, things aren’t quite the same when you wake up—and not just because you’re in someone else’s body from the neck down. ‘Noggin’ will fool you by making you laugh out loud one minute and contemplate the nature of human existence the next. Whaley’s writing is sharp but messy when it needs to be (in a good way). Although Travis’ situation is somewhat unique, he faces the same challenges that normal people deal with every day: change, grief, alienation, and the disappointment of your life not turning out exactly how you planned it. He soon discovers that no one really knows how to live their best life, whether it’s their first or second.

BOOKS WE LOVE: Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens
'Faking Normal' is one of those books that manages to punch you in the gut and wrap you in its embrace—depending on what chapter you're reading. I'm not usually a fan of contemporary YA, but I was drawn in by Courtney Stevens' powerful writing, each sentence like the pounding of a heartbeat. The story she tells is so raw and so real that you almost expect the pages to start crying or bleeding as you turn them, flipping fervently through to see how Alexi and Bodee will break your heart next, and hoping that they can move past the terrible traumas they've had to face. Like Alexi's nails on the back of her neck, 'Faking Normal' tears you up, but not without the promise of healing. And like a scar, this novel will linger with you long after you've turned the final page.
