Gypsy Moth Summer by Julia Fierro

“YAs will get caught up in the story of Maddie and the other teen characters as they face complex social and environmental problems.”–Booklist

Trophy Son by Douglas Brunt

“YAs will enjoy the unpredictability of Anton’s rise to the top of the tennis world and his struggle to stay there, along with Brunt’s use of text messaging instead of dialogue.”–Booklist

All the Dirty Parts by Daniel Handler

“Amusing yet genuine, lustful yet sensitive, this odd novella approaches teenage horniness seriously and, in the process, touches on important subjects such as sexism, consent, and sexual identity…Although some scenes are graphic, Handler’s young fan base and Cole’s adolescent viewpoint will naturally draw in teens.”–Booklist

Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology edited by Jonathan Maberry + George Romero

“With YA stalwart Maberry at the helm, this collection will get the veritable horde of teen zombie fans salivating.”–Booklist

COME SUNDOWN by Nora Roberts
A June 2017 Indie Next pick! When Mustang-tough Bodine Longbow’s long-missing aunt returns to the family ranch in Montana 25 years later with a story of abduction and abuse, Bodine realizes that something really bad is lurking in the mountains. “Roberts always tells a good story that balances romance and suspense, but in this title, the narrative is deeper, the mystery is more layered, and with Alice, Roberts moves into another level of exploring physical and emotional trauma and the powerful balm of family and love.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

A June 2017 Indie Next pick! From the New York Times bestselling author of BIG FISH comes a novel about an ordinary man who wins a free weekend at a beachfront condo in Destin, Florida, and has seventy-nine days to find someone to take with him (ideally, his true love). “Witty, winsome, and wise, Wallace’s tale of pluck and luck is a sweet, satisfying diversion.” — Booklist readmoreremove
