  • My Flawless Life by YVONNE WOON. With her reputation destroyed by her senator father's nearly-fatal accident, her friends gone, and her job as a "fixer" all but defunct, Hana takes a job from an anonymous client to follow her former best friend, hoping it'll help get her old life back. But before she knows it, she's forced to face not only her classmates' darkest secrets, but her own.

  • Just Do This One Thing for Me by LAURA ZIMMERMANN.
