THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK by Adrienne Young
9781250168481
Ages 12-18

The new gut-wrenching epic from the New York Times bestselling author of SKY IN THE DEEP.
For as long as she can remember, Tova has lived among the Svell, the people who found her washed ashore as a child and use her for her gift as a Truthtongue. Her own home and clan are long-faded memories, but the sacred symbols inked on her skin mark her as one who can see into the future. She has found a fragile place among those who fear her, but when two clans to the east join together as one, her world is dangerously close to collapse.

“Halvard and Tova’s world is described as brutal and beautiful—their personal struggles with identity, fate, and community shine against the minimalistic plot and slowly building tension.” —Kirkus Reviews

Contributors include Tiffany D. Jackson, Caleb Roehrig, Kendare Blake, Stephanie Kuehn, and many more.

THE GRACE YEAR and THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK make the Fall 2019 Kids’ Indie Next List!

The Fall 2019 Kids’ Indie Next List was announced and includes THE GRACE YEAR by Kim Liggett (in the Top Ten!) and THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK by Adrienne Young!

THE GRACE YEAR by Kim Liggett
Available October 8, 2019 from Wednesday Books

No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden.
Girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive.

“The bones of Liggett’s tale of female repression are familiar ones, but her immersive storytelling effortlessly weaves horror elements with a harrowing and surprising survival story. Profound moments lie in small details, and readers’ hearts will race and break right along with the brave, capable Tierney’s.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Day’s YA – THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK

Happy Friday, YA librarians!

Ready for the Norse Viking book of your dreams?

THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK by Adrienne Young
9781250168481
Available September 3, 2019 from Wednesday Books
Ages 12 to 18

Adrienne Young’s debut and 2019 BFYA pick, SKY IN THE DEEP, was among my favorite 2018 reads. I know I’m not allowed to have favorites…but COME ON. It was AMAZING! But now it’s 2019… Enter: Young’s latest epic adventure, THE GIRL THE SEA GAVE BACK.

This standalone companion novel stars Tova, a Truthtongue (she can see the future) who washed up on the shores of the Svell clan as a child, and Halvard (remember the young boy in SKY IN THE DEEP?), who is about to become the opposing clan’s leader.

As the chapters alternate between Tova and Halvard, the conflict between their clans escalates. And although the Svell rely on Tova’s ability to see the future, her visions are not always well-received and she is blamed for their misfortune. As the battle rages, Tova must decide if she is indeed a Svell, or if she will finally find her true home elsewhere.
