OLDER FICTION
McNamara, Amy

A Flicker in the Clarity

(4) YA Reticent, artistic Evie feels out of step at her elite Manhattan school. Her only close friend is privileged Emma, but when Emma's impulsivity turns self-destructive and even cruel, Evie struggles to stand up for herself. Friendship troubles, family drama, and a charming but aloof love interest combine in typical realistic-YA fashion, albeit with a sensitive approach to class disparity.
