LIKE WATER is a great read from Rebecca Podos, author of THE MYSTERY OF HOLLOW PLACES. It's billed as a "novel of first love," but it's also bigger than that: protagonist Savannah Espinoza must deal with issues around family, identity, and relationships. The characters are memorable and the dialogue is strong, and the story isn't afraid to push toward the vulnerable.

We all have that perfect, motion picture version of our lives that exist only in our own heads and don't always line up with reality. This makes great fodder for Jared Reck's A SHORT HISTORY OF THE GIRL NEXT DOOR: main character Matt Wainwright constantly sabotages himself over his crush and his basketball aspirations. Equal parts hilarity and heartbreak, Reck's debut novel hits all the right notes.
