Happy #PubDay

Happy #bookbday to a LILAC GIRLS read-alike, a witty epistolary novel, and an SF favorite newly in hardcover!

THE WARTIME SISTERS by Lynda Cohen Loigman
For fans of LILAC GIRLS, the next powerful novel from the author of Goodreads Choice Awards semifinalist THE TWO-FAMILY HOUSE about two sisters working in a WWII armory, each with a deep secret. “With a perceptive lens on the challenges of whittling away grievances that have built up over years, THE WARTIME SISTERS is a powerful pressure cooker of a family drama.”–Booklist

HOLY LANDS by Amanda Sthers
A witty, heartwarming, and heart-wrenching epistolary novel about a dysfunctional family–led by a Jewish pig farmer in Israel–struggling to love and accept each other. “Comic, moving, and occasionally profound, Sthers’ novel is a delight.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

ALL SYSTEMS RED: The Murderbot Diaries (Volume 1) by Martha Wells
Now available in hardcover, ALL SYSTEMS RED is the first entry in Martha Wells’ New York Times and USA Today bestselling science fiction series, The Murderbot Diaries–winner of the 2018 Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Awards. “SecUnit, aka Murderbot, is a semiorganic corporate profit center, genderless and constructed of cheap parts to perform contract bodyguard services for clients who mostly don’t want them…. The creepy panopticon of SecUnit’s multiple interfaces allows a hybrid first-person/omniscient perspective that contextualizes its experience without ever giving center stage to the humans.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK by Adrienne Young
9781250168481
Available September 3, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 12 to 18

The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of SKY IN THE DEEP.
For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols inked on her skin mark her as one who can see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

UNSTOPPABLE MOSES by Tyler James Smith will be available in trade paperback on September 10, 2019

THE GRACE YEAR by Kim Liggett
9781250145444
Available September 17, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 14 to 18

No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.
Girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive.

“This dark tale, often reminiscent of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, is both disturbing and uplifting . . . This is a novel that will appeal to those who like dark stories with fairy-tale elements; highly recommended as a book group discussion choice.” —School Library Journal

WAYWARD SON by Rainbow Rowell
9781250146076
Available September 24, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 13 to 18

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to CARRY ON by #1 New York Times bestselling author Rainbow Rowell.
The story is supposed to be over. Simon Snow did everything he was supposed to do. He beat the villain. He won the war. He even fell in love. Now comes the good part, right? Now comes the happily ever after . . . So why can’t Simon Snow get off the couch? What he needs, according to his best friend, is a change of scenery. That’s how Simon and Penny and Baz end up in a vintage convertible, tearing across the American West. They find trouble, of course. (Dragons, vampires, skunk-headed things with shotguns.) And they get lost. They get so lost, they start to wonder whether they ever knew where they were headed in the first place . . .

Two teens—Naima and Dew—meet after tragedy and learn about love, loss, and letting go. SIX GOODBYES WE NEVER SAID is no love story. If you ask Naima, it’s not even a like story. But it is a story about love and fear and how sometimes you need a little help to be brave enough to say goodbye.
