While I'm excited and grateful about my third book releasing on Thursday, I like to make note of some other new books that I'm looking forward to. I could go on and on, but here are just a couple:
My editor, Leila Sales, happens to be a writer also. Her first two books, Mostly Good Girls and Past Perfect, were contemporary realistic YA (which you know I love). And they were funny, too! Her new book releases next week. The synopsis: "Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski’s strong suit. All throughout her life, she’s been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party ... Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, This Song Will Save Your Life is an exuberant novel about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together."
Jody Casella is one of my co-bloggers over at YA Outside the Lines. Her debut YA, Thin Space, comes out today! The synopsis: "Ever since the car accident that killed his twin brother, Marshall Windsor has been consumed with guilt and crippled by secrets of that fateful night. He has only one chance to make amends, to right his wrongs and set things right. He must find a Thin Space—a mythical point where the barrier between this world and the next is thin enough for a person to step through to the other side."
Congratulations to them and to all writers with books coming out, and happy reading to all!
