Talia Hibbert$15.99 $14.71
Britt says: "I think Eve is my favorite Brown sister. Her heart is golden, and I fell for her story in a heartbeat. The set-up! The sass! The one-liners! The chemistry! It's true, you could give me a good enemies-to-lovers trope any day, and I'd be hard-pressed to turn it down, but Act Your Age, Eve Brown delivers so much more (including own voices autism rep).
Lisa Fipps$17.99 $16.55

Elise Broach and David Small$18.99 $17.47

Sankichi Hinodeya$9.99 $9.19
Katlyn says: "I love this series! As a huge fan of the games, I feel like this manga really embodies the game play. They're fun, silly, and a quick read. Team Blue has just as much fun playing Turf War matches as I do with my friends in real life. The fact that they influence others to have fun doing what they love too is what really sells this series for me. I can't wait for more!"
