This poignant, sweepingly romantic debut novel told in dual POVs is perfect for fans of Everything, Everything and All the Bright Places. Anyone who follows Emerald on her social media accounts only sees a perfect life-her loving, wealthy family, tight-knit circle of friends, and devoted internet following. But the truth hides behind the scenes of her perfectly framed, filtered photos. . . Emerald's family is far from happy, and when she finds her mom unconscious on the bathroom floor, she can no longer keep it a secret. Sent to stay with her grandmother in a small beach town while her mother recovers and her father works non-stop, Emerald fears the long, lonely summer ahead of her . . . until she meets Liam. He's an aspiring songwriter with his own baggage, but neither of them can deny their connection. With secrets and lies all that they're used to, can Emerald and Liam really fall for each other-brave and true-with no filter? This fresh, funny, and poignant debut from Orlagh Collins is refreshingly grounded and sweepingly romantic all at once.

Sometimes, love is just an illusion. Sometimes, it becomes the sole purpose of your life. While stories on social media were trending, Raghu was lost in books. For him, even the idea of falling in love was limited to books-until he met Ruhi. As their love plays out against the backdrop of the upcoming student elections, Raghu finds himself embroiled in a mess he cannot seem to get out of. When his closest friends hatch a plan to rescue him, it only puts him in further jeopardy. Will his love sail through or will it get swept away by the storm of campus politics? Set in this elaborate sociopolitical milieu, Sudeep's new book explores the dark side of relationships, the pursuit of power and the hypocrisy of the powerful.

Alicia Bunyan-Sampson is terrible at telling lies, even the "white lies" that help smooth over awkward situations and avoid painful conversations. This inability makes some things, like living with mental illness as a black woman, a challenge. It makes other things, like having a monogamous relationship, impossible. For Alicia, a polyamorous life is an honest one. It speaks true to her history growing up in a nontraditional blended family. And it allows her to speak truth to her experiences as a person with conflicting identities, struggling to reconcile her life as a polyamorous black woman with the intersecting stigmas and stereotypes that afflict those identities. But sometimes being yourself means being by yourself: the road to Alicia's realization of a relationship free of dishonesty is paved with isolation, social awkwardness, and alienation. No Filter is a personal genealogy, tracing the origins of what is often thought of as a purely modern model for relationships back to the earliest impressions of a woman's history.
