Small Town Witch by Kristen S. Walker

She wanted her freedom. Her mother wanted to keep her safe. But if her mother is the more powerful witch, how can Rosa ever break free?

Teen witch Rosa thought she had a happy family. But after her mother convinces her that sixteen is too young to start dating, she’s not so sure. Why does Mom win every argument when Rosa fights for her independence? Why do her father and sister listen to Mom’s opinions on everything? Maybe they give up too easily, or there’s something more sinister at work.

As she investigates her own house, Rosa finds hidden spells everywhere, each one with creepy powers. Her mother sees nothing wrong with invading their privacy, from tracking their movements to reading private diaries. That’s dangerous when Rosa has a secret she’s afraid to tell—she’s bisexual. But when Rosa tries to confront her mother, her own mind betrays her.

To break the spells, Rosa will need help from her friends, both magical and human, along with her strange Fae mentor. But if she learns the truth, will her mother’s dark secrets tear her family apart?

Faith Herbert is a pretty regular teen. When she’s not hanging out with her two best friends, Matt and Ches, she’s volunteering at the local animal shelter or obsessing over the long-running teen drama The Grove.

But when her investigation puts the people she loves in danger, she will have to confront her hidden past and use her newfound gifts—risking everything to save her friends and beloved town.

Padawan by Kiersten White

BEING A TEENAGER IS HARD ENOUGH WITHOUT ALSO TRAINING TO BE A JEDI….


Obi-Wan Kenobi has not been apprenticed long to Qui-Gon Jinn, and he is chafing at Qui-Gon's training style: all meditation, no action. Obi-Wan yearns to prove himself on a mission, but when he and Qui-Gon are finally set to leave on an assignment, Qui-Gon is nowhere to be found. Angered by his master's abandonment, Obi-Wan sets out on the mission alone, determined to prove himself.


On a mysterious planet he encounters a pack of feral, Force-wielding teens who seem to be the planet's only inhabitants. As he experiences wild freedom with them and wonders if this isn’t the life he was meant for, Obi-Wan can’t escape the nagging sense that something is wrong with the Force there. Growing attachments, startling revelations, and a looming threat to both the planet and his new friends will bring Obi-Wan face-to-face with his worst fear: that maybe he was never supposed to be a Jedi at all. Can he connect with the living Force in time to save himself and everyone around him?
