There's something about Sweetie /  by Sandhya Menon.
The irresistible companion novel to the New York Times bestseller When Dimple Met Rishi, which follows Rishi's brother, Ashish, and a confident, self-proclaimed fat athlete named Sweetie as they both discover what love means to them. Ashish Patel didn't know love could be so... sucky. After being dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl -- under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he'll be taking his date on fun excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work? Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track athlete who can outrun most people in California, a loyal friend, a shower-singing champion. Oh, and she's also fat. To Sweetie's traditional parents, this last detail is the kiss of death. Sweetie loves her parents, but she's so tired of being told she's lacking because she's fat. She decides it's time to kick off the Sassy Sweetie Project, where she'll show the world (and herself) what she's really made of. Ashish and Sweetie both have something to prove. But with each date they realize there's an unexpected magic growing between them. Can they find their true selves without losing each other? --

The center of the universe /  by Ria Voros.
Grace Carter's mother, GG, is everything teenage Grace is not. GG is glamorous and breezy, while Grace is a low-key dreamer. The two may share a name, but that's where the similarities stop. With nothing much in common, the two hardly speak to each other. Then one day GG is just... gone. Cameras descend on their house, news shows speculate about what might have happened, and Grace's family struggles to find a new rhythm as they wait for answers. While the authorities begin to unravel the mystery behind GG's disappearance, Grace finds herself learning secrets from her mother's long-lost past. The more Grace learns, the more she wonders. Did she ever really know her mother? Was GG abducted... or did she leave? And if she left, why? A suspenseful and sensitive exploration of the gravitational force between mothers and daughters.--
