Winter 2019 Flatiron YA Sampler

Start your year with a sneak peek of two 2019 titles from Flatiron Books YA!

Available for download on Edelweiss, this sampler features excerpts from the following upcoming YA titles from Flatiron Books YA:

ENCHANTÉE by Gita Trelease (available February 5, 2019)
This lush and imaginative debut fantasy is about an impoverished girl who must use magic to impersonate an aristocrat in Versailles to provide for her sister as her own political awakening forces her to choose sides in the French Revolution.

TIN HEART by Shivaun Plozza (available March 12, 2019)
When Marlowe gets a heart transplant and a second chance at life, all she wants to do is to thank her donor’s family. Maybe then she can move on. Maybe then she’ll discover who she is if she’s no longer The Dying Girl. But her second chance is about to take an unexpected turn . . .

Maximum Shelf: THE SILENT PATIENT

Today’s Maximum Shelf Awareness pick is the “‘IT’ thriller of 2019,” “Masterful,” and “Set[s] the bar for psychological thrillers” according your librarian pals.

Alex Michaelides’s THE SILENT PATIENT lures readers in with a tantalizing premise: a woman has murdered her husband in cold blood, and then refuses to say why. The intricately plotted story, inspired by Greek mythology, is akin to a siren song, enticing, but with an ominous undertone and hints of deception.
