THE CRYSTAL KINGDOM by Amanda Hocking (The Kanin Chronicles #3)
“The author’s spin-off trilogy of her ‘Trylle’ series come to an explosive end. As Bryn fights to clear her name and restore her rule in the kingdom, she must also choose between the love of the dangerous Konstantin or that of the steadfast Ridley. Hocking’s paranomal romance expertise shines through.” — School Library Journal

STILL LIFE LAS VEGAS by James Sie, illustrated by Sungyoon Choi
An astonishing literary debut about a young man who, in the search for clues into the disappearance of his mother twelve years earlier, discovers himself in the process. “The stories are haunting, a quality that is beautifully captured by artist Choi’s interpolated graphic-novel chapters that expand and complement the text. Sie’s first novel is richly imagined and beautifully written with a well-realized setting and memorable characters. Together they make for an altogether auspicious debut.” — Booklist

MAKE YOUR HOME AMONG STRANGERS by Jennine Capó Crucet
A “heartfelt first novel” with “sharp cultural observations and terrific dialogue” (New York Times Book Review) about a young, Cuban-American woman accepted into an elite college just as her home life unravels. readmoreremove

THE NATURE OF THE BEAST by Louise Penny
Nine-year-old Laurent Lepage loves to tell tall tales so extraordinary no one can possibly believe him. When he disappears, the villagers of Three Pines are faced with the possibility that one of his stories might have been true. The frantic search for the boy and the truth sets off a sequence of events that lead to murder, an old crime, and right to the door of the town’s old poet, Ruth Zardo.

EVERYBODY RISE by Stephanie Clifford
A Maximum Shelf Awareness pick & BEA giveaway title! Lying your way to the top of the social strata has devastating consequences for Evelyn Beegan, a 26-year-old desperate for a “better life” even if it’s a lie in this debut novel of class, ambition and ultimately spectacular ruin. “A compulsive, up-close-and-personal read about the first cracks in the greed-and-bleed U.S. economy that went flying off the rails so spectacularly a short time later.” — Library Journal, starred review

ALL THAT FOLLOWED by Gabriel Urza
A Publishers Weekly Best of Summer 2015 selection and Summer/Fall 2015 Indies Introduce pick, this psychologically twisting debut novel about a politically-charged act of violence that echoes through a quiet Spanish town is “as subtle and enveloping as the txirimiri, a Basque word for ‘rain so fine that an umbrella is useless against it.’” — Publishers Weekly, starred review
