If you’re an adult who reads YA, we’ve got great news!

SADIE by Courtney Summers
“A teenager sets out to bring her sister’s killer to justice, while a true-crime podcaster visits her dead-end hometown to trace her whereabouts. Alternating between transcripts of the podcast and Sadie’s first-person account of her investigation, Summers’ novel is filled with her trademark biting commentary on sexual assault and the mistreatment of girls and women at the hands of predatory men as she slowly unspools both investigations at a measured, tantalizing pace.”
THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert
“In this unsettling debut, Albert takes familiar stories and carefully pulls them apart; the end result is a sort of deconstructed fairy tale that, despite its familiarity, gets under the skin. Highly literary, occasionally surreal, and grounded by the hero’s clipped, matter-of-fact narrative voice, it’s a dark story that readers will have trouble leaving behind.”
