Paris Never Leaves You by Ellen Feldman at BermudaOnion.

Alternating between wartime Paris and 1950s New York publishing, Ellen Feldman’s Paris Never Leaves You is an extraordinary story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost.

A new ice age… and a shocking discovery… will change humanity forever.

With time running out, NASA launches a mission to make contact with the artifact. But it isn’t what anyone thought. Humanity faces a new kind of threat–and an event that will reveal a dark truth about our future.

From A.G. Riddle, the worldwide bestselling author with OVER 4 MILLION COPIES SOLD, comes a sci-fi thriller that will forever change the way you look at Earth’s place in the solar system.

Dry by Neal Shusterman found at Read All the Things.

When the California drought escalates to catastrophic proportions, one teen is forced to make life and death decisions for her family in this harrowing story of survival from New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman.

The drought—or the Tap-Out, as everyone calls it—has been going on for a while now. Everyone’s lives have become an endless list of don’ts: don’t water the lawn, don’t fill up your pool, don’t take long showers.

Until the taps run dry.

Suddenly, Alyssa’s quiet suburban street spirals into a warzone of desperation; neighbors and families turned against each other on the hunt for water. And when her parents don’t return and her life—and the life of her brother—is threatened, Alyssa has to make impossible choices if she’s going to survive.
