Library Journal’s Best Spring/Summer 2018 Debut Novels

Library Journal pre-pub buzz maven Barbara Hoffert shared her picks for “spring and summer titles you should have on your radar,” including these four Macmillan debuts:

SEMIOSIS by Sue Burke
Colonists escaping an environmentally imploding Earth make an emergency landing on a planet they weren’t aiming for, and generations of humans grow up there, evolving as they adapt to a new ­environment. “Extraordinary.” (LJ 1/18)

THE ITALIAN PARTY by Christina Lynch
In 1956, newlyweds Michael and Scottie Messina arrive in Italy, where Michael will be working for the CIA. His ambitions and their not-government-approved sexuality complicate matters. “Effervescent as spumante; spot-on social commentary.” (LJ 11/1/17)

GIRLS BURN BRIGHTER by Shobha Rao
Allied as outsiders, two girls in India become fast friends but are separated by tragedy, with Poornima finally traveling all the way to Seattle to renew her bond with Savitha. “This tale of sacrifice, exploitation, and reclamation is not to be missed.” (LJ 1/18) readmoreremove
