Teen Talk Tuesday! (3/17/15)

Happy St. Patty’s Day! Today’s pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is full of reading riches newly out from Griffin Teen. Catch up then join @earlyword today at 5pm EST for Early Word YA Galley Chat to brag about what you’re reading (hashtag #ewyagc).

But first, some wonderful news: TUNNEL VISION by Susan Adrian has received a nomination for the 2016 YALSA Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers List!

THE TRAGIC AGE by Stephen Metcalfe
A brilliant, debut coming-of-age novel about Billy Kinsey, a misanthropic young man determined not to participate in life, until two people enter his life and challenge him to learn to love, trust and truly be alive in an absurd world. Less Than Zero meets Catcher in the Rye in this biting bildungsroman. Written in an insightful, frenetic tone that occasionally turns surreal, Metcalfe’s debut novel is a sexy, violent portrayal of disengaged youth attempting to feel something authentic in the antiseptic age of the Internet. Exhilarating and indicting.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

BOARDING SCHOOL GIRLS by Helen Eve
In this prequel to Helen Eve’s first novel STELLA, revenge runs deep, old wounds break open, and the past can never, never be outrun.

DUPLICITY by N.K. Traver
A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.

INSTINCT by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Chronicles of Nick #6)
In the sixth novel in the bestselling Chronicles of Nick series, Nick has finally accepted his fate and now must learn to defy his destiny, and the dark, deadly forces that will stop at nothing to destroy everyone he loves.
ILLUSION by Sherrilyn Kenyon (Chronicles of Nick #5) will be available in Trade Paperback on March 31.
