Day’s YA – JANE ANONYMOUS

Happy Friday, YA pals!

My last Day’s YA of 2019 is a dark thriller that will keep you awake until 2020.

JANE ANONYMOUS by Laurie Faria Stolarz
9781250303707
Available January 7, 2020 from Wednesday Books
Ages 13-18
Available to download as an e-galley on Edelweiss

“Jane” (we don’t know her real name) was kidnapped the summer before her senior year of high school. After seven harrowing months in captivity, Jane escapes and returns to her small, sleepy New England town. In order to heal, Jane writes a book (JANE ANONYMOUS) chronicling the events of her imprisonment.

Alternating between past and present, the “THEN” chapters detail her capture, the psychological torture she endured, her relationship with fellow inmate Mason, and her eventual escape; the “NOW” chapters cover her homecoming and recovery as she learns the truth about what really happened to her during those horrifying seven months.

This haunting thriller was absolutely terrifying. Like, put the book in the freezer and step away from it for a few minutes, terrifying. It’s been months since I read it, and I’m still thinking about Jane.

Pepper and Jack (yes, like the cheese) have been quiet rivals since Pepper moved to NYC to attend Jack’s fancy private school. Pepper is top of her class and Jack is the class clown. Pepper is the swim team captain and Jack is a dive team star. Pepper’s family owns Big League Burger, a massive chain, and Jack’s family owns Girl Cheesing, the local deli. Pepper secretly runs the Big League Burger Twitter account and Jack occasionally tweets back from the Girl Cheesing account.

When Girl Cheesing accuses Big League Burger of stealing their top-secret grilled cheese recipe, the two become embroiled (har har) in an all-out Twitter war. But while Pepper and Jack are fighting online, they’re also falling in love via an anonymous app that Jack created. When the Twitter feud goes viral, things get way too personal and the tweets turn mean, but that doesn’t stop the world from shipping the pair. (How can you resist when their ship name is PepperJack??) Will their budding IRL friendship & virtual romance survive the fallout?

THE ELECTRIC HOTEL by Dominic Smith

Two starred reviews!

“A compelling plot, robust characters, and finely crafted prose richly evoke a bygone age and art.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Smith’s tale is as luminous as celluloid projected on a silver screen hung from a dirigible floating over the Hudson (yes, this happens). Highly recommended for historical fiction fans and readers who love old Hollywood novels.”–Booklist, starred review

MAGIC FOR LIARS by Sarah Gailey

“There’s something for almost all readers here: family drama, romance, high-school gossip, fantasy-world building. Above all, Gailey shows us that humans are humans, even when they are magic, and they are still flawed, damaged, and oh so interesting.”–Booklist, starred review
