Purification in Rash by Para Harun

Life is full of surprises in a winning novel about a girl who dreams big during one unexpected summer in a small town.

When the coveted fashion specialty of the ambitious 17-year-old designer, Tahira Jen Muhammad, falls, her parents have a plan B. Tahira will work in her aunt’s boutique in the small town of Bavel, the flower capital of Ontario. It’s only for the summer, and she’ll get the experience she needs to apply to college. Plus her best friend is coming. It will not be so terrible.

But she just is unable to deal with Rowan Johnston, the coarse and obsessive garden nerd next door with frayed cuts and horrible shoes. Not to mention his sharp jaw line, burning eyes and soft lips. So annoying. Rowan is also just the child-plant whose purity should help win the Bavel Flower Arrangement Competition – an event that carries importance in New York City, of all places. And with designers, of all people. Connections she needs!

No one is more surprised than pure to find that flower design is almost as great as fashion design. And Rowan? Turns out he’s more than ironic shirts and soil under his nails. Purity is about to find out what it is really made of – and for its name. Because here in the middle of nowhere, purity is just beginning to blossom.

You Can Go Your Way by Eric Smith

No one said love would be easy … but did they mention it would be frozen?

Adam Stillwater is over his head. At least, that’s what his best friend would say. And his mother. And the guy who runs the hardware store on the street. But this pinball arcade is the only part of his dad that Adam has left, and he’s determined to protect him from Philadelphia’s new tech mogul, who wants to make it another one of his cold, lifeless cafes for games.

Whitney Mitchell does not know how she got here. Her parents separated. She lost all her friends. Her boyfriend dumped her. And now she’s spending her last year managing social media for her father’s successful coffee shop chain – which consists mostly of insult trading with this old, sloppy pinball game around town.

But when a huge blizzard hits, Adam and Whitney suddenly find themselves trapped inside the arcade. Detached from their families, their worlds and their responsibilities, the tension between them seems to melt away, leaving something else in place. But what happens when the storm stops?
