Two best friends, lost in the Canadian wilderness.

Vale loves to hike, but kind of hates her classmates. Ash is okay with his classmates, but kind of hates the outdoors. So, needless to say they are both fairly certain that the overnight nature hike with their PE class is going to be a hellish experience. But when they get separated from the group during a storm, they have worse things to worry about than bullies and blisters.

Lost in the Canadian wilderness with limited supplies, caught in dangerous weather conditions, and surrounded by deadly wildlife, it's going to take every bit of strength, skill, and luck they can muster to survive...

What people are saying about Switchback:

"A harrowing tale of survival, a vivid ode to the Canadian wilderness, and a gorgeous friendship story all rolled into one. You'll want to hunker down with a good, warm blanket as you embark on this thrilling, unputdownable ride." –Sarvenaz Tash, author of The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love and Virtually Yours

"Switchback isn't just a survival story, it's a geeky survival story... I devoured this epic story of two teens lost in the Canadian wilderness." —Anna Priemaza, author of Kat and Meg Conquer the World

Fake It Till You Break It

Jake and Mia have the perfect plan to get their moms off their backs.

Mia and Jake have known each other their whole lives. They’ve endured summer vacations, Sunday brunches, even dentist visits together. Their mothers, who are best friends, are convinced that Mia and Jake would be the perfect couple, even though they can’t stand to be in the same room together.

After Mia’s mom turns away yet another cute boy, Mia and Jake decide they’ve have had enough. Together, they hatch a plan to get their moms off their backs. Permanently. All they have to do is pretend to date and then stage the worst breakup of all time—and then they’ll be free.

The only problem is, maybe Jake and Mia don’t hate each other as much as they once thought...

What people are saying about Fake It Till You Break It:

"Light, frothy, and packed with plenty of genre tropes, this alternates between Mia and Jake, giving them both character arcs beyond their budding romance. For genre fans who can't resist a hate-to-love romance, this is just the ticket." —Booklist

"I found this book to be super fluffy and captivating. Jake is such a book boyfriend. ... I just loved the bits and pieces of this book." —Remarkablylisa

"If you enjoy reading Jenny Han, then this is the one for you. One of the cutest YA reads for 2019!" —Books and Co.
