Teen

Just Breathe by Cammie McGovern

David Scheinman is the popular president of his senior class, battling cystic fibrosis. Jamie Turner is a quiet sophomore, struggling with depression. The pair soon realizes that they’re able to be more themselves with each other than they can be with anyone else, and their unlikely friendship starts to turn into something so much more. But neither Jamie nor David can bring themselves to reveal the secrets that weigh most heavily on their hearts–and their time for honesty may be running out.

Adult

Ghosts of Harvard by Francesca Serritella

Cadence “Cady” Archer arrives on Harvard’s campus searching for answers about her brother, a schizophrenic genius who leapt from his dorm room window the year before. Eric’s brilliance overshadowed Cady growing up, but she worshipped and adored him–even as he became more unstable, retreating deeper into his secretive work on multidimensional spacetime and isolating himself from everyone around him. Losing Eric has left a black hole in Cady’s life, and while her choice to walk the same path threatens to break her family apart, she is driven to know why Eric killed himself. As Cady struggles under the enormous pressure that comes with being at Harvard, she begins to investigate her brother’s life on campus. What was it that caused Eric to spiral into an irretrievable madness–the paranoia, the delusions, the illusory enemies–after he had been doing so well? Soon, her prying turns up clues that grow increasingly sinister.
