No Moon, by Irene Watts
Ever since Louisa Garener's brother died in a boating accident, Lousia has been afraid of going to sea. Now, she's fourteen and a nursemaid to the daughters of a very rich man. When the family decides to sail to New York on the Titanic, what will Louisa do when she's forced to go? Will she go with the fear of what happened to her brother, or will she refuse and never leave the working class stage that she has desperately tried to escape from?

Happyface, by Stephen Emond

Enter Happyface's journals and get a peek into the life of a shy, artistic boy who decides to reinvent himself as a happy-go-lucky guy after he moves to a new town.

The Karma Club, by Jessica Brody
Madison Kasparkova always thought she understood how Karma works. Do good things and you'll be rewarded, do something bad and Karma will make sure you get what you deserve. But when Maddy's boyfriend cheats on her, nothing bad comes his way. That's why Maddy starts the Karma Club, to clean up the messes that the universe has left behind. Sometimes, though, it isn't wise to meddle with the universe. It turns out Karma often has plans of its own.

Linger, by Maggie Stiefvater
This is the second book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and it's the sequel to Shiver. As Grace hides the vast depth of her love for Sam from her parents and Sam struggles to release his werewolf past and claim a human future, a new wolf named Cole wins Isabel's heart but his own past threatens to destroy the whole pack.
