Told Me

Ages 14 and up

 

 



 

When Alix’s girlfriend Swanee dies of sudden cardiac arrest, Alix is inconsolable with grief. She slips away from Swanee’s service to her room, fully expecting the whole ordeal to be an extravagant hoax. But the only thing Alix finds is the bag from the hospital where Swanee was taken. She still can’t believe Swanee is gone, and when Swanee’s cell pings a text message, Alix just knows the call is for her, telling her it was all a prank.

 

The call, however, is from a person with the initials LT. And there are dozens and dozens of messages. Who is LT and, if this isn’t a joke, why is she calling a dead person? Alix is determined to find out the answer whatever the cost.

Azure is secretly in love with her best friend, Radhika. Unfortunately, Azure’s other bff (bisexual best friend), Luke, also has a secret crush on Radhika. When Azure is asked to plan an alternative prom at her high school, she jumps at the chance, not only because it’ll give her a chance to ask Radhika out, but also because she believes prom should be more inclusive. Since Azure has no clue how to plan a prom, she enlists the help of Luke and Radhika. Everything that can go wrong does, including the PTSO eliminating all the events they find objectionable. Will the watered down prom allure any students beyond the usual prommies to attend? Can the prom committee even raise enough money to put on an event? And, if so, who will Radhika go with?

Isolation. Abandonment. Death. Too much pain in Mike Szabo’s life. Add to it the futility of unattainable goals and Mike’s future seems bleak. But the confines of a small Kansas community are exploded when Xanadu, an exotic newcomer, arrives in town. Xanadu is a light, a candle, a glimmer of hope in Mike’s heart. Only one problem: Xanadu is straight. Can a gay person love a straight person, and vice versa? Or are there physical and emotional distances that never can—and never should—be crossed?

Holland's awakening to her own sexuality is the key to setting her free. Can Holland trust that the people she counts on most in her life will accept and embrace her newfound identity?
