Title: “It Ends With Us” 
Author: Colleen Hoover

Lily Bloom grew up in a small town in Maine, watching her mother be abused by her father. The only friend she had was a homeless boy named Atlas. Their friendship grew into the first real love for both of them.   

Atlas soon has to leave and go live with an uncle in Boston, but he promises Lily he will come back for her.  He never shows.   

A few years later, Lily is in Boston working at a marketing firm when she meets Ryle – a very handsome neurosurgeon. When he breaks his rule of “no relationships” to be with Lily, she feels special and excited about her new romance. Ryle is charming, handsome, fun to be with and head-over-heels for Lily.   

She is on cloud nine until they have dinner at the hottest new restaurant in town. Secrets are found out and jealousies flair during the course of their relationship – bringing destruction in their path.   

When faced with the promise of her past and the uncertainty of her future, Lily has an impossible choice to make

Title: “Little Fires Everywhere” 
Author: Celeste Ng

Shaker Heights is a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, that has certain standards and lots of rules.   

Elena Richardson writes for the local paper and lives in the big house on Parkland Drive that is now in ashes. She also owns a house on Winslow Road that she has kindly rented out to Mia Warren and her daughter, Pearl.   

Mia is a freelance photographer who lives the nomad life – going wherever her art takes her.  But is that the real reason they are constantly moving from city to city?   

Elena’s four children – Lexi, Tripp, Moody and Izzy – become friends with Pearl, and they all spend most evenings together after school.   

When an adoption case involving one of Elena’s closest friends becomes the biggest story in town, homes are divided. Elena finds out that the birth mother is friends with Mia and then decides to do her own investigation into Mia’s real story.  

No one knew simple nosiness and misunderstandings would lead to such destruction.   

This is available in paperback at the library or on audio on the Libby app.
