LJ’s Best Fall 2018 & Winter 2019 Debuts

Library Journal‘s best debuts of Fall 2018 & Winter 2019 include these 7 Macmillan titles:

A BORROWING OF BONES by Paula Munier
Both traumatized by war, retired soldier Mercy Carr and her bomb-sniffing Belgian Malinois Elvis are running in the Vermont woods when Elvis discovers an abandoned baby, which brings in state game warden Troy Warner and his search-and-rescue Newfoundland. An LJ Mystery Debut of the Month; read for “the believable dogs, the touches of humor, the independent, determined Mercy, and well-crafted characters.” (LJ 9/1/18)

HEARTS OF THE MISSING by Carol Potenza
Pueblo police sergeant Nicky Matthews investigates the suicide of a young woman linked to missing Fire-Sky tribal members who need intervention or their spirits will be condemned to wander. Winner of the Tony Hillerman Prize; “this action-packed mystery…vividly evokes the beauty of the New Mexico landscape and its indigenous peoples.” (LJ 8/18)

WOMAN WORLD by Aminder Dhaliwal
Originally serialized through Disney animation director Dhaliwal’s Instagram account, this graciously illustrated graphic novel imagines a world where men have died out owing to a genetic defect and women are rebuilding society. Mostly black-and-white artwork (so the color bits really mean something); “it’ll be hard to find a funnier, more moving or original debut this year.” (LJ 9/1/18) readmoreremove
