DELICATE MONSTERS by Stephanie Kuehn

A GIRL UNDONE by Catherine Linka (The Girl Called Fearless series #2)
In this sequel and explosive conclusion to A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS, Avie Reveare is on the run with deadly government secrets and has been labeled a terrorist. Can she can live up to her name and truly become fearless for the cause or is it better to just give in to her pursuers? “Readers who are fans of dystopian fiction will appreciate the action and suspense that both Avie and Luke have to work through, as well as the rebellious nature that both characters exude.”
VOYA Magazine

WEIGHTLESS by Sarah Bannan
When 15-year-old Carolyn moves from New Jersey to Alabama with her mother, she rattles the status quo of the junior class at Adams High School and becomes a golden girl. But after one incident, Carolyn is labeled a slut, and becomes increasingly private and isolated in the wake of gossip and bullying until it’s the last attack she can take. “Bannan’s provocative novel will stay with readers long after they finish it, and should be an especially effective read for teens.” — Publishers Weekly

Children’s & Teen Tri-State Book Buzz titles

It’s a beautiful day for today’s AAP Children’s & Teen Tri-State Book Buzz in NYC! Sadly, we’re not there to present, but here’s what we’d tell you about if we were:

ALL THE RAGE by Courtney Summers
On Sale: April 14, 2015
Three words: O.M.G. Possibly one of the best, most important Griffin Teen books we’ve ever read, Summers’ hardcover debut examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women after an act of sexual violence. Angie Manfredi, Head of Youth Services Librarian at Los Alamos County Library System, NM, called it “A YA game changer along the lines of Laurie Halse Anderson’s SPEAK, this is a work of great power and resonance.”

Teen Talk Tuesday (5/20/14 Edition)

Calling all YA-readers: Teen Talk Tuesday is here! Check out the newest teen books from St. Martin's Griffin this month, then join us and @earlyword later today for Early Word YA Galley Chat at 5pm EST, hashtag #ewyagc.

A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS by Catherine Linka
Set in an altered—yet terrifyingly familiar—present-day USA, this is a riveting debut about a teen girl who must decide whether to submit to a forced marriage...or run for freedom. “Linka weaves a believable, disturbing dystopian future and never shies from violence or tragedy. A deftly plotted portrait of the evolution of a teenage girl into a dystopian heroine.” — Kirkus Reviews

A reading group guide is available for this title (it's also compatible with Common Core standards!).

BLONDE OPS by Charlotte Bennardo & Natalie Zaman
The Devil Wears Prada meets Ally Carter in this debut young adult novel, set in Rome, which features a fashion magazine intern who uncovers a plot to kidnap the First Lady. “The only person Bec can trust is herself as the plot twists and turns in this hypercharged thriller of fashion, high-tech sleuthing, and power, with bella Roma as the backdrop. Close calls, mysterious phone conversations, surreptitious whispers in office corners, and a clandestine conversation in a dark warehouse make for highly improbable, but also highly entertaining, escapist fun.” — Booklist

REBORN by C.C. Hunter (Shadow Falls After Dark #1
New York Times bestselling author C. C. Hunter returns to Shadow Falls with this brand new spin-off series starring vampire Della Tsang. “This is great for readers wanting to return to Shadow Falls....” — Kirkus Reviews
