ONCE THERE WERE WOLVES by Charlotte McConaghy–#1 pick!
ISBN 9781250244147 | on sale 8/3/21
“A lovely, gripping tale about a world that could be our own.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“The bleak landscape is gorgeously rendered, and made tense by its human and animal inhabitants, each capable of killing. Throughout, McConaghy avoids melodrama by maintaining a cool matter-of-factness. This is a stunner.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
SHE WHO BECAME THE SUN by Shelley Parker-Chan
ISBN 9781250621801 | on sale 7/20/21
“Parker-Chan’s debut is forceful, immersive, and unforgettable. This inspired queer retelling of Chinese history is an exciting read.”–Library Journal, starred review
“The side characters in her story and the plots and betrayals that swirl around the book’s events are themselves intensely compelling, but it is Zhu’s strength of will and passion that give this novel its spark.”–Booklist, starred review
WE ARE THE BRENNANS by Tracey Lange
ISBN 9781250796226 | on sale 8/3/21
“Lange’s richly layered debut follows an Irish-American family as they confront long-buried secrets that might tear them apart… Lange deftly examines the long shadow of family history and the bonds that cannot be broken.”–Booklist
