What a Desi Girl Wants by Sabina Khan

Mehar hasn’t been back to India since she was four. She hasn’t visited her father, or any of her family. Why would she?

Her father made it clear that she’s not his priority when he chose not to come to the US with her and her mum. But when her father announces his engagement to socialite Naz, Mehar reluctantly agrees to return for the wedding. Maybe she and her father can heal their broken relationship. And after all, her father is Indian royalty, and his home is a palace.

While her father still doesn’t make the time for her, and she hates Naz and her social media influencer daughter, Mehar barely cares once she meets Sufiya, her grandmother’s assistant. Though they come from totally different worlds, their friendship slowly starts to blossom into something more . . . Mehar thinks. But she can tell Naz is using her dad for his money and putting a stop to the wedding might be the best for everyone involved. What happens when telling her father the truth about Naz and Aleena means putting her relationship with Sufiya at risk . . .

Getting Away With Murder by Kathryn Foxfield

The bestselling author of Good Girls Die First, It’s Behind You and Tag, You’re Dead is back with an entertaining, high-octane and read-in-a-single-sitting new thriller.

While working at a brand new, high tech escape room complex, Saffron poses a question to the resident AI: which high school stereotype would survive the longest in a real life version of Sole Survivor? She is convinced a rebel like her would beat a know-it-all like Georgia.

Unbeknown to her, the AI decides to determine the answer to her question by testing it out for real. It invites Saffron and Georgia’s gamer friends to a preview of the escape rooms, but then it locks the doors and turns the rooms into a life-or-death battle to be the last player standing. The rebel, the know-it-all, the princess, the jock, the geek, the weirdo, the star, the artist and the criminal. Just like in Sole Survivor, only one can survive the night…

But Maggie soon discovers that Knobbly Bottom is also full of SECRETS. The sheep are growing FANGS, their eyes are turning RED, and they’re planning to take over the world…

When Mum thinks she’s just making up another silly story, it’s up to Maggie, her little sister Lily and their new friend Fred – with the help of a strange old lady called Nan Helsing and some stinky garlic bread – to save Knobbly Bottom from the ATTACK OF THE VAMPIRE SHEEP!
