And at the LibraryReads Librarian author lunch, Suketu Mehta talked about his own experiences and research for his new book, THIS LAND IS THEIR LAND: An Impassioned Argument About Immigrations and Its Discontents (Spring 2019): “Fear of migrants is doing incalculably more damage than the migrants themselves ever could. All evidence shows that immigrants enrich the countries that they move to.”

Last but not least, here’s what your librarian pals recommended at Library Journal‘s “Shout n’ Share” panel:

Books for Teens 2018 + “Day’s YA!”

Welcome to the 2018 Books for Teens post!

I am Emily Day, Macmillan’s Library Marketing Assistant / YA Specialist and your host and curator of this post. I recently moved to NYC from Boston, where I worked as a bookseller at Trident Booksellers and Cafe, an intern at Charlesbridge Publishing and the Horn Book, and a children’s literature graduate student at Simmons College. If I’m listening to music, it’s probably a Broadway musical soundtrack, I love and collect maps, and I prefer cold, cloudy days to warm, sunny ones. I read YA almost exclusively, and some of my all-time favorites are WORDS IN DEEP BLUE by Cath Crowley, ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE by Benjamin Alire Sáenz, I’LL GIVE YOU THE SUN by Jandy Nelson, INSIDE OUT & BACK AGAIN by Thanhha Lai, and ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L.M. Montgomery (technically those last two aren’t YA, but they’re just so spectacular that I had to list them).

In addition to featuring forthcoming YA and YA-ok titles from Wednesday Books and Flatiron Books YA, I will also include my candid reviews of as many titles as I can possibly read (starting with two of my absolute faves, Melissa Albert’s THE HAZEL WOOD and Adrienne Young’s SKY IN THE DEEP), which will be labeled as “Day’s YA!” [GET IT? HA!] So, when you’re ready to scroll, stories of Vikings and Valkyries, hospitals and heartthrobs, mental illness and fighting back, all await you below.

Ready? Here we go!

First, make sure that you’re pre-approved on Edelweiss to download all of our available e-galleys, including many of the titles mentioned below. Click here to find out how to be whitelisted.

You can also view our Edelweiss collection of Books for Teens 2018 titles here.

Now on to the books!

MIRAGE by Somaiya Daud
9781250126429
Available August 28, 2018 from Flatiron Books
Ages 13 to 18
Also available in audio

Star Wars meets RED QUEEN and THE WRATH AND THE DAWN in this epic fantasy inspired by the author’s Moroccan heritage about Amani, a poor girl who must become the body double of a princess of a ruthless empire. As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection . . . because one wrong move could lead to her death.

“Daud’s gorgeously written novel features lush and poetic language that brings the setting into vivid color. In addition to the blend of [science fiction] and fantasy, Daud supplies a dash of forbidden romance destined to leave the reader gasping for breath.” —Booklist, starred review

” . . . readers will appreciate the rich world and prose built by a much-needed diverse voice.” —Kirkus Reviews

SADIE by Courtney Summers
9781250105714
Available September 4, 2018 from Wednesday Books
Ages 13 to 18

SADIE is the story of a missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she’s left behind. When Sadie’s little sister, Mattie, is found dead, Sadie hits the road on a mission to find her sister’s killer. But when West McCray—a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America—overhears Sadie’s story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie’s journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it’s too late.

“Sadie is smart, observant, tough, and at times heartbreakingly vulnerable, her interactions mediated by a profound stutter. In the podcast, characters first seen through Sadie’s ruthless eyes further reveal (or conceal) their interactions and motives.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert
9781250147905
Available now from Flatiron Books
Ages 12 to 18
Also available in audio
SIX starred reviews!!

Day’s YA Review:
Reminiscent of Emily Carroll’s THROUGH THE WOODS and Emma Donoghue’s KISSING THE WITCH, Melissa Albert has hit the nail on the head with this spooky homage to fairy tales. Though Albert’s novel is not a retelling of a classic fairy tale, she has managed to create a completely original narrative filled with riveting characters and a captivating plot that still retains some of the elements of more traditional tales. THE HAZEL WOOD is an obvious choice for lovers of fantasy novels and classic fairy tales, but it will also appeal to fans of YA mystery novels, such as E. Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS, and stories about the discovery of deep, personal truths, such as Nicola Yoon’s EVERYTHING EVERYTHING. Albert’s enchanting debut novel is truly something special and will leave you with the lingering notion that our stories are all around us, influencing us and comprising our most inner beings.

LEGENDARY by Stephanie Garber
9781250095312
Available now from Flatiron Books
Ages 13 to 18
Also available in audio

In the sequel to the New York Times bestselling and #1 IndieNext Pick CARAVAL, Stephanie Garber’s limitless imagination takes flight once more. This year’s Caraval has concluded and Tella is alive—and safe, to her older sister’s relief. But Tella has secrets she has been keeping from Scarlett. Afraid of revealing the truth to the person who loves her most, Tella runs away to Valenda, the capital of the Empire, to find the mysterious correspondent whom Tella owes.

“The pacing is impeccable, with urgency increasing to an almost breathless point as Tella runs from clue to clue, while bittersweet truths and devastating betrayals unfold.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

” . . . a tour de force of imagination.” —Kirkus

“Fans will be delighted to spend more time with Tella, Dante, and Scarlett, and to immerse themselves again into Garber’s magical world.” —School Library Journal

CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber (ages 13 to 18) is available now in trade paperback.

SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young
9781250168450
Available now from Wednesday Books
Ages 12 to 18
Also available in audio

Day’s YA Review:
As soon as I reached the last page of this novel, I wanted to go back and start from the beginning again just so I could continue to be wrapped up in Young’s words. Know her characters. Experience the world she created. The character of Eelyn is a badass warrior heroine who will appeal to fans of Marvel’s Wonder Woman, as well as Disney’s Brave and Tamora Pierce’s Alanna series. Eelyn is simultaneously fierce and sensitive; she loves deeply, but she is also able to instantly take someone down with her axe. Adrienne Young’s debut novel is written with the finesse of a veteran author, and to give you a taste of her brilliance I’m going to leave you with a quote from the second page of the book that captures the emotion and voice of the novel:

“Vegr yfir fior. Honor above life. The first whistle cut into the air from our right, warning us to get ready and I closed my eyes, feeling the steadiness of the earth beneath my feet. The sounds of battle rushing toward us bled together as the deep-throated prayers of my clansmen rose up around me like smoke from a wildfire. I let the words march out under my breath, asking Sigr to guard me. To help me bring down his enemies.”

And now, a word from debut author, Adrienne Young:

Dear Librarians,

As story gatekeepers, I know the role you play in a book’s life and in the life of young people is invaluable. That’s why I am so excited for you to meet Eelyn, a fierce, but deep warrior whose life is about to change forever. In many ways, her journey reflects my own and I know that there are teens out there who will find a mirror in these pages. What I hope girls see in this book is the message that I wish had been given to me—that you don’t have to apologize for strength and passion and that you don’t have to be either hard or soft, but that you can be both. You can fight fiercely and you can love deeply. Most importantly, that you can dare to see the world differently than the way you always have. And that even though it’s scary, it’s absolutely thrilling to open your eyes for the first time. Eelyn will be forced to confront everything she’s ever been taught. She will have to grieve, learn to love, and redefine what family, loyalty, and forgiveness is.

I hope you are swept away with Eelyn as she runs straight into battle, headed toward a future she could never have imagined!

Thank You,
Adrienne Young

“The action on the battlefield and the rising political tensions between the clans will easily keep readers involved through the final page.” —The Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books, review

“With its gorgeous prose and epic battle scenes, fantasy lovers will be easily satisfied.” —Booklist, review

“Young’s often poetic writing forms a stark juxtaposition with her vivid descriptions of battle and bloodshed, creating a clear picture of the brutality of war.” —Publishers Weekly, review

ALL THE RAGE by Courtney Summers
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.”

FEUDS by Avery Hastings (The Feuds Series #1)
In an America split into the genetically superior and inferior, a fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis, and a boy from the wrong side of the tracks, Cole, must stop a deadly virus that is spreading quickly. “FEUDS is fast-paced and plot-driven [and] ends with an unexpected cliff-hanger. Readers will eagerly await the sequel.” — School Library Journal

TORN by Avery Hastings (The Feuds Series #2)
In the sequel to FEUDS, Davis meets another recovered patient who helps her find clues that could lead to a cure. Meanwhile, Cole has plans to change his identity to compete in the Olympiads.

The creator of Clarissa Explains It All‘s first novel stars a 19-year-old girl from New Jersey who finds herself thrust into the world of socialites after being seen in Audrey Hepburn’s iconic dress from the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. “Kriegman hits all the right notes for breezy escapist fiction—Manhattan glamour, glitzy parties, couture designs, and the name-dropping that goes with them.” — Publishers Weekly

SWAY by Kat Spears
In this “compelling debut told with swagger and real depth” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) by librarian Spears, a young man who avoids emotional connection at all costs is forced to open his heart when he meets the girl of his dreams. “Engrossing… Sharp dialogue, edgy humor, and an unlikely hero make this page-turner a winner.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

PARTY GAMES by R.L. Stine (Fear Street series)

In the second new book in the re-launch of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series, a damaged young lady gets sent on a doomed babysitting job.

THE BOY WHO DREW MONSTERS by Keith Donohue
This creepy horror novel about a young boy whose drawings of monsters take on a life of their own is the #6 October 2014 LibraryReads pick! “A sterling example of the new breed of horror: unnerving and internal with just the right number of bumps in the night.” — Kirkus Reviews

THE GOOD SISTER by Jamie Kain
A stunning debut young adult novel about love in all its joyful, painful, exhilarating manifestations, and about the ties that bind us together, in life and beyond.

REDEEMED by P.C. + Kristin Cast (The House of Night #12)
In the final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, evil vampyre Neferet has recovered her strength, while Zoey Redbird isn’t sure that she has what it takes to bring down Neferet, who now calls herself a god. “Lives are lost, loyalties (and romances) tested, and loose ends neatly tied up in this twelfth and final installment in the series. Fans will happily slurp this down, and with a film adaptation of the series in the works, they’ll have more to look forward to.” — Booklist
