Norris is clever, cynical and quite possibly too smart for his own good.  A Black French Canadian, he knows from watching American sitcoms that those 3 things don't bode well when you are moving to Austin, Texas. 

Plunked into a new high school, Norris finds himself cataloguing everyone he meets: the Cheerleaders, the Jocks, and the Loners. Against all odds, those labels soon become actual people to Norris.  But the night of the prom, Norris screws everything up royally.  As he picks up the pieces, he realizes it might be time to stop hiding behind the snarky opinions and start living his life--along with the people who have found their way into his heart.

Comics will break your heart by Faith Erin

Miriam's family should be rich.  After all, her grandfather was the co-creator of smash-hit comic series The TomorrowMen.  But he sold his rights to the series to the co-creator in the 60's for practically nothing and that's what Miriam has..practically nothing for college tuition.

Miriam's life gets more complicated when a cute boy shows up in town...and turns out to be the grandson of the man who defrauded Miriam's grandfather.
