The Boy Next Door is the first book of Cabot’s Boy trilogy but can stand as an independent novel. The story revolves around a gossip columnist living in New York City named Melissa Fuller. She gets reprimanded regarding her frequent tardiness, but this time (or more appropriately, around the 50th time), the reason why she’s late for work is that she found her elderly neighbor unconscious in her apartment and after taking the old lady to the hospital, took the responsibility of caring for her pets.

When her neighbor was put into a comatose, Mel eventually makes contact with the lady’s only living relative to tell him the awful news (and to pass on the duties of animal caretaking). This relative is none other than her nephew, Max Friedlander, who cannot bother to immediately travel to New York to watch over his aunt’s pets. As such, he convinces one of his friends to impersonate him. And that’s where the story gets interesting.

Somewhere In Between is Katie Li’s debut novel. It is a story about two unlikely friends who, other than their walks home together from school, do not spend time together (i.e. they never invite each other over or hang out during school hours). During one of their walks, they discover a strange door – one that contains an ever-changing alternate reality. Later on, this location is referred to as the “in-between” place. As the two main characters continue experiencing what the portal to a parallel realm has to offer, they are forced to rediscover themselves and each other.
