ICE KISSED by Amanda Hocking (The Kanin Chronicles #2)
In the second book in the Kanin Chronicles series (after FROSTFIRE), war is coming to the Kanin and Bryn Avery is right in the middle of it. “The open ending of this second installment will leave readers wondering how it will all be resolved.”
BATTLE LINES: A Graphic History of the Civil War by Ari Kelman & Jonathan Fetter-Vorm
“A graphic rendering of epic destruction and intimate despair, as the authors make Civil War scholarship come alive for readers young and old. The artistry of Fetter-Vorm powerfully captures the devastation that the war wreaked on the country…while the historical context by Bancroft Prize winner Kelman provides the contextual depth… In this gripping graphic narrative, the complexities of history achieve clarity, and the depth of the tragedy has a visceral impact.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review readmoreremove
Just in time for today’s Early Word YA Galley Chat, here are this month’s new releases from St. Martin’s Griffin TEEN and Farrar, Straus & Giroux!
DREAMFIRE by Kit Alloway
A young dream walker must save the world from certain destruction one dream at a time, in this riveting debut from an exciting new talent in young adult fiction. “A dark and exciting paranormal adventure that will keep patient genre fans up late.”
— Kirkus Reviews
FIND ME by Laura van den Berg (One of Kirkus Reviews‘ Brand-New Books You Shouldn’t Miss this week!)
A highly anticipated debut novel about a young woman named Joy who is in quarantine at a psychiatric hospital because her blood might hold the key to a cure and a vaccine against a highly contagious disease that’s rampaging across the country.
“Like Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale or Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, van den Berg’s debut novel presents a frighteningly plausible near-future dystopia grounded in human elements. Not everything is explained, and things take an increasingly surreal turn in the novel’s second half, but Joy’s quest, and her need to feel cared for, is heartbreakingly real and compellingly wrought. Highly recommended.” — Library Journal, starred review
“YAs with a penchant for dark, subtly speculative fiction will be captivated by Joy and her struggles for selfhood and survival in a poisoned world.” — Booklist, starred review
DISGRUNTLED by Asali Solomon (One of Kirkus Reviews‘ Brand-New Books You Shouldn’t Miss this week!)
A coming-of-age tale, a portrait of Philadelphia in the late eighties and early nineties, and an examination of the impossible double-binds of race seen through the eyes of eight-year-old Kenya Curtis. “A deft, knowing, bold, and witty debut.” — Booklist, starred review readmoreremove
