SLJ’s Best Adult Books 4 Teens 2016

School Library Journal recently revealed their Best Books of 2016, and SLJ’s Best Adult Books 4 Teens list includes three Macmillan titles:

THE BRICKS THAT BUILT THE HOUSES by Kate Tempest
Two pairs of twentysomethings in modern London—Harry, a drug dealer, and her best friend, “tough” Leon; Becky, an erotic masseuse and dancer, and her overprotective boyfriend, Pete—try to find their place in the gritty underbelly of London. Tempest builds on the stories first outlined in her hip-hop album Everybody Down to create a dark tale of coming-of-age in an unforgiving world.

EVERDAY SEXISM by Laura Bates
Using hundreds of tales from women (and men) about sexual abuse, catcalling, and sexism, Bates draws from her social media project, Everyday Sexism, to create a must-have title about social justice, feminism, and microaggressions.

THE MIDNIGHT ASSASSIN: Panic, Scandal, and the Hunt for America’s First Serial Killer by Skip Hollandsworth
In the mid-1880s, an ax murderer targeted the women of Austin, TX. Fans of history and true crime won’t be disappointed by this fascinating and intricately researched account of a serial killer who predated England’s Jack the Ripper. readmoreremove

THE 14TH COLONY by Steve Berry
In bestseller Berry’s 11th Cotton Malone thriller, the former Justice Department agent faces down a former KGB agent who plans to exploit uncertainty surrounding the forthcoming U.S. inauguration wrought by a Constitutional loophole. “Once again, Berry mixes history and suspense in a high-energy, action-packed thriller. Fans will not be disappointed as he delivers another complex story highlighted by Malone’s superhuman ability to survive anything and chase the bad guys to the ends of the earth.” — Library Journal

THE MIDNIGHT ASSASSIN: Panic, Scandal, and the Hunt for America’s First Serial Killer by Skip Hollandsworth
Fans of Erik Larson’s DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY will relish this gripping and atmospheric account of a horrific series of murders in late 19th-century Texas that are largely obscure today, despite their fantastical elements and similarities to the Jack the Ripper butcheries.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

SENT TO THE DEVIL by Laura Lebow
While rushing to polish the libretto for the Vienna debut of Don Giovanni, Mozart’s collaborator—Lorenzo DaPonte—finds himself dealing with murder, both literary and not, in this sequel to THE FIGARO MURDERS. “The puzzle, characters, and period detail are all top-notch.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

THE CRACKED SPINE by Paige Shelton
In this cozy, American Delaney Nichols moves to Edinburgh, Scotland to start a job at a rare book and manuscript shop called The Cracked Spine. But before she can settle in, she has to recover a precious artifact and figure out how it’s connected to the tragic death of the book shop owner’s sister. “This spotlessly clean, fun-filled read takes plenty of twists and turns on the way to the satisfying ending.”
