New Books Out This Week 7/21

These are the new books I'm obsessing over this week:

By: Corey Ann Haydu
Bea is living with OCD and meets a guy that can actually relate to what she's going through.  But her obsessions have the potential to ruin everything she has with Beck.  Can she figure out a way to get her compulsions under control before everything blows up in her face?  This sounds so good, I can't freaking wait to read it :)

By: Trish Cook
"A hint of Recovery Road, a sample of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and a cut of Juno. A Really Awesome Mess is a laugh-out-loud, gut-wrenching/heart-warming story of two teenagers struggling to find love and themselves." ~Goodreads.  Dude do you need any other description??  This sounds so fun!!

By: Paul Blackwell
Callum goes over a waterfall and has a near-death experience.  He wakes up in a hospital in a new reality where nothing makes much sense to him.  Nothing is how he remembers it to be, including his best friend, among other people, wanting him dead.

By: Alexander Vance
Middle Grade!!!  12-year-old Quentin delivers break-up messages for a fee.  But he finds out his entrepreneurial pursuit makes having his own relationship kind of complicated.
