My dear Henry : a Jekyll & Hyde remix / Bayron, Kalynn

In this reimagination of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a teen boy tries to discover the reason behind his best friend's disappearance and the arrival of a mysterious and magnetic stranger. London, 1885. Gabriel Utterson, a 17-year-old law clerk, has returned to London for the first time since his life-- and that of his dearest friend, Henry Jekyll-- was derailed by a scandal that led to his and Henry's expulsion from the London Medical School. Whispers about the true nature of Gabriel and Henry's relationship have followed the boys for two years, and now Gabriel has a chance to start again. But Gabriel doesn't want to move on, not without Henry. His friend has become distant and cold since the disastrous events of the prior spring, and now his letters have stopped altogether. Desperate to discover what's become of him, Gabriel takes to watching the Jekyll house. In doing so, Gabriel meets Hyde, a strangely familiar young man with white hair and a magnetic charisma. He claims to be friends with Henry, and Gabriel can't help but begin to grow jealous at their apparent closeness, especially as Henry continues to act like Gabriel means nothing to him. But the secret behind Henry's apathy is only the first part of a deeper mystery that has begun to coalesce. Monsters of all kinds prowl within the London fog-- and not all of them are out for blood.

Until we break / Dawkins, Matthew.

As the only Black student at her ballet academy, Naomi Morgan knows her feelings of isolation and artistic sacrifice are the price she has to pay in order to win the Youth American Grand Prix, the country's most prestigious dance competition. Winning means access to a spot in a top ballet school and, ultimately, a place with The New York City Ballet. Nothing else matters. But when Naomi's dance instructor assigns her Odette's variation from Swan Lake, Naomi's world begins to fall apart. She doesn't think she can dance the part -- and her doubts become the loudest voice in her head. Her best friend, Jessica, used to be her sounding board, her support, her co-star -- and even though Jessica died in a freak car accident, Naomi still sees and hears her everywhere. She's been burying her grief by focusing on her dancing. But when an injury steals that refuge, Naomi's mental health deteriorates and she starts to seek answers outside of her carefully constructed reality. Then one night, she meets Saint, a street artist, and he opens up an entirely new world for her. A world that's not connected to dance. Saint spends his nights creating brilliant and beautiful messages of social change that the world needs to hear. In their sleepy California town, he wants to mix it up -- to force the world to see him as he is -- he's got a voice and isn't afraid to use it. Even if his family life is tough. Even if the same avenues that are open to Naomi are not open to him. Together they both learn that there's no one right way to be in the world. For Naomi, this means that maybe dance isn't the only choice for her. Maybe her voice can be louder off stage, and she can shine in a different kind of spotlight. Maybe she and Saint will shine together and everything will be different in the best possible way.
