ALL THE RAGE by Courtney Summers
IT’S HERE!! Possibly one of the best, most important Griffin Teen books we’ve ever read, Summers’ hardcover debut examines the shame and silence inflicted upon young women after an act of sexual violence. It received two starred reviews and Angie Manfredi, Head of Youth Services Librarian at Los Alamos County Library System, NM, called it “A YA game changer along the lines of Laurie Halse Anderson’s SPEAK, this is a work of great power and resonance.”
DON’T STAY UP LATE by R.L. Stine (Fear Street series)
In the second new book in the re-launch of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series, a damaged young lady gets sent on a doomed babysitting job. “Stine returns to Shadyside and his incredibly successful and addictive horror formula. Every chapter ends with a hook or jump scare…it’s impossible not to be sucked into the swift pace and delightfully spine-tingling moments.” — Booklist
TWIST by Karen Akins
In the unbelievably thrilling sequel to LOOP, someone is kidnapping Shifters from the distant past and altering the current timeline. It’s up to Bree to stop them, but first, she has to figure out who…and why.
