FOUR Stars for THE FUTURE OF ANOTHER TIMELINE

Annalee Newitz follows award winner + 2017 Best Book AUTONOMOUS with THE FUTURE OF ANOTHER TIMELINE–a story of time travel, murder, and the lengths we’ll go to protect the ones we love–that just received its FOURTH starred review!

“This riot of a book will have readers delighting both in the thrilling battle over timelines in an intricate, alternative world and in the joys of inclusive feminist solidarity.“–Booklist, starred review

Newitz’s fascinating extrapolation is an intelligent, gut-wrenching glimpse of how tiny actions, both courageous and venal, can have large consequences. The sidelong looks at prejudice-born horrors are frequent but not overwhelming, and the examinations of how much darkness one might be willing to endure in order to stop a vaster terror are heartbreaking. Smart and profound on every level, this is a deeply satisfying novel.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

“In her sophomore work, Newitz (AUTONOMOUS) comes back to an Earth that highlights the truths of our past and possibilities of our future. The fantastical elements do not hide the all-too-real horrors women could face, but intelligence and hope are woven into every level. Shrewd commentary and a host of sources highlight Newitz’s strength in prose.“–Library Journal, starred review

“Between careful attention to Tess’ development, Beth’s chapters, and the near-constant jumps through time, the story charges along until Newitz suddenly ties it all together with breathtaking finesse. The humdinger of an ending is a perfect cherry on top. An ambitious adventure that keeps the surprises coming.“–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Day’s YA – AGAIN, BUT BETTER

TGIF, YA pals!

Let’s end this week with a dash of international adventure, a pinch of flirtatious eye contact, and just a little bit of magic.

AGAIN, BUT BETTER by Christine Riccio
9781250299253
Ages 12 to 18
Available May 7, 2019 from Wednesday Books

Shane is pre-med and in desperate need of change. A semester abroad in London studying Creative Writing is just the ticket. While across the pond, Shane makes friends easily and even falls into a flirty crush thing with Pilot, the cutey from across the hall. When Shane’s parents show up unannounced and discover that she’s been lying to them about her studies, well, y’all know what happens next . . . Shane is back in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. No more writing. No more Pilot.

Fast forward six years. Shane, while interviewing for residencies, runs into Pilot for the first time since her semester abroad. The pair then embarks on a magical journey . . . back in time to 2011. Shane and Pilot are given the do-over that we non-book characters only ever dream about. But, will they get it right this time?

#PubDay (4/16/19)

On this #pubday, we celebrate time travel–to a 19th century French vineyard, to breaking codes in Asia post-WII, to the beginnings of American Libertarianism or through objects themselves…

THOMAS AND BEAL IN THE MIDI by Christopher Tilghman

“Lovely literary fiction for not only fans of Tilghman’s previous work but for anyone interested in that age-old question, What is true love?”–Library Journal

CREDO: The Rose Wilder Lane Story by Peter Bagge

“The idiosyncratic, independent life and work of Rose Wilder Lane—Laura Ingalls Wilder’s conservative daughter—gets its due in this spiky graphic biography by Bagge… This loopy, frantic, and personality-packed tribute is fitting for one of America’s lesser-known gonzo feminist writers.”–Publishers Weekly
