The Girl Who Wouldn't Die, by Randall Platt 

Title: The Girl Who Wouldn?t Die, Author: Randall PlattIt's 1939 in Poland, and Abra knows that standing up for anyone-especially her Jewish family-only paints a target on her back.  So she plans to survive the Nazi occupation the way she always has; disguise herself as an Aryan boy, lead her street gang, and sell whatever she can steal.

But though Abra starts the war with the one goal of staying alive, others have different ideas for her.  When a stranger asks for her help with a covert rescue mission, Arab has to make a choice.  Trying to be a hero is a surefire way to be killed.  But if she doesn't do it, who will?
Hard-hitting and unforgettable, The Girl Who Wouldn't Die is a story about survival, the necessity of resistance, and the hope that can be found when the world is at its darkest.
“An unforgettable read that illuminates genuine hope in a very dark world. In The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die, Platt has worked literary magic that not only enthralls and entertains, but says as much about today as it does about the past. Nothing short of a masterpiece.” —Gregg Olsen, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Girl Out of Water, by Laura Silverman

Title: Girl out of Water, Author: Laura SilvermanFans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen will fall in love with this contemporary debut about finding yourself and and finding love in unexpected places.
Ocean breeze in her hair and sand between her toes , Anise can't wait to spend the summer before her senior year surfing and hanging out on the beach with friends.  Santa Cruz is more than her home- it's her heart.  But when her aunt, a single mother, is in a serious car accident, Anise must say goodbye to California to help care for her three young cousins.
Landlocked Nebraska is the last place Anise wants to be.  Sure, she loves her family, but it's hard to put her past behind her when she's living in the childhood house of the mother who abandoned her.  And with every Instagram post, her friends back home feel further away. 
Then she meets Lincoln, a charismatic, one-armed skater who challenges her to swap her surfboard for a skateboard.  Because sometimes the only way to find your footing is to let go.
"Anise's reluctance to leave, rooted in worries of forgetting home and being forgotten, will resonate with readers who've ever been homesick....A quick summer read to reassure teens who worry about college or blooming where they're planted."-Kirkus
