Celebrate the publication of Catherine Linka’s new book, What I Want You to See, a complex and utterly original gripping tale of deception, attraction, and moral ambiguity. Winning a scholarship to California's most prestigious art school seems like a fairy tale ending to Sabine Reye's awful senior year. After losing both her mother and her home, Sabine longs for a place where she belongs. But the cutthroat world of visual arts is nothing like what Sabine had imagined. And what should she do when she accidentally becomes party to a crime so well -plotted that no one knows about it but her? From the Kirkus review: “An engrossing novel about art, self-expression, and making amends.”

Kayla Cagan Kayla Cagan’s latest offering is Art Boss, a story that stands alone but can be read as a companion novel to Piper Perish.

Except life in the city isn't as glamorous as it looks from afar. Piper's high-pressure work as an assistant to a famous modern artist takes away time from her own art. And Piper's new friend Grace, a budding activist, has Piper beginning to wonder if making great art is really enough. From the Booklist Review: "A great read for any artist aspiring to greatness."
