We’re sorry to have missed #ewgcya earlier this month, especially since we have so many wonderful things to share with y’all. Like our brand-new Books for Teens 2017 poster (now with even more great teen reads)!
Or this super-cute ad that our friends at Flatiron Books YA are running in the May/June issue of Horn Book Magazine (see below).
Plus, Stephanie Garber’s CARAVAL, S. Jae-Jones’s WINTERSONG, and Roshani Chokshi’s A CROWN OF WISHES are all Buzzfeed’s “YA Books You Need To Add To Your Must-Read List!”
Now on to this month’s new teen titles:
WONDERFUL FEELS LIKE THIS by Sara Lövestam
Ages 12 to 18
Two starred reviews! The Elegance of the Hedgehog meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower in this novel about a bullied teenager and an old man in a retirement home who bond over their mutual love of jazz music. “Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding.” — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
A CROWN OF WISHES by Roshani Chokshi
Ages 13 to 18
In this second beautiful, lush fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Chokshi, Gauri, the princess of Bharata, must team up with her enemy kingdom’s prince Vikram to win the Tournament of Wishes—a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor. “Careful plotting, multiple viewpoints, high-stakes action, and a slow-burn relationship make this heady fantasy completely engrossing. A first pick for YA collections.” — School Library Journal, starred review
THE STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN by Roshani Chokshi is now available as a shiny, new trade paperback!
DREAM FOREVER by Kit Alloway (The Dream Walker Trilogy)
Ages 13 to 18
As the veil to the Dream becomes dangerously thin, Josh must stop it from tearing to save the world, in the conclusion to The Dream Walker Trilogy. “Teens who have enjoyed Cassandra Clare, Veronica Roth, or Kiersten White will want to try this series.” — VOYA Reviews
THE SONG RISING by Samantha Shannon (The Bone Season #3)
The magnificent third book in the New York Times-bestselling series: a fantastic tale of rebellion and courage against enormous odds. “As before, Shannon vividly and purposefully realizes each meticulously detailed setting, from London’s underground to outposts in Scotland, while infusing her imaginative, passionate, and gripping saga with profound insights into humankind’s long, bloody history of tyranny and the radiant ones who zealously fight for freedom and justice.” — Booklist
