Maggie Tokuda-Hall and Lisa Sterle synergize their storytelling skills in Squad, a graphic novel about a group of bloodthirsty werewolves who hunt sexual predators. Becca is the new girl at Piedmont High. With no friends and a deep hunger to belong, she is over the moon when Marley, Arianna, and Amanda—the most popular girls in school—invite her to join the pack. Little does Becca know, this girl gang has a not-so-pretty secret: they eat boys. But only the bad ones! Don’t kill anyone you know, leave no trace, and stick together. Their system is foolproof until Thatcher, Ariana’s playboy boy toy, turns up dead. Mean Girls meets Jennifer’s Body with a Sapphic twist in this artfully-rendered, paranormal drama. Fans of N.D. Stevenson, Suzanne Walker, and Amy Lynn Reed will revel in Tokuda-Hall’s revenge fantasy as it depicts the dangers of vigilantism and retributive justice through Sterle’s Archie-esque art style.

Alex Craft knows how to kill someone. And she doesn't feel bad about it.
Three years ago, when her older sister, Anna, was murdered and the killer walked free, Alex uncaged the language she knows best--the language of violence.
While her own crime goes unpunished, Alex knows she can't be trusted among other people. Not with Jack, the star athlete who wants to really know her but still feels guilty over the role he played the night Anna's body was discovered. And not with Peekay, the preacher's kid with a defiant streak who befriends Alex while they volunteer at an animal shelter. Not anyone.
As their senior year unfolds, Alex's darker nature breaks out, setting these three teens on a collision course that will change their lives forever.
Upon meeting in a bar one night, Elsie and Jimmy are immediately attracted to each other, but there's a hitch--she's a vampire and he's a werewolf. The two become involved (with a few minor annoyances and missteps), and they share memories of past lovers and swap gruesome tales of past exploits.

She finds allies—and even romance—in the most unexpected people, like Gray Kendall, who she'd always dismissed as just another lacrosse bro. As things heat up at school and in her personal life, Marin must figure out how to take back the power and write her own rules.
