Recommended Read

Vera and Charlie had been lifelong friends until the start of their senior year, when the pair became estranged. When Charlie dies suddenly, and under suspicious circumstances, Vera is set adrift by grief, guilt, and the realization that the people closest to her are still, in crucial ways, strangers. As Vera thinks about Charlie and all she knows and has ignored, the secrets about their troubled lives, their families, and their town gradual unfold. Now Vera must face that shame and learn that silence can have risky, sometimes deadly, consequences, and find the courage to tell what she knows and bring justice to light.

Emotionary: A dictionary of words that don't exist for feelings that do. All her life, Eden Sher has suffered from dyscommunicatia, the inability to articulate a feeling through words. Then, one day, she decided that whenever she had an emotion for which she had no word, she would make one up. The result of this is The Emotionary, which lives at the intersection of incredibly funny and very useful. 

At the outset of World War II, Denmark did not resist German occupation. Ashamed of his nation's leaders, Knud Pedersen resolved with his brother and schoolmates to take action against the Nazis if the adults would not. Naming their secret club after the fiery British leader, the young patriots in the Churchill Club committed countless acts of sabotage, infuriating the Germans, who had the boys tracked down and arrested. But their efforts were not in vain: the boys' exploits and imprisonment helped spark a full-blown Danish resistance.
