And now, on to today's releases...

Brightly Woven is a YA fantasy by Alexandra Bracken.  Publishers Weekly called it: a fresh, fun take on magic and wizardry, with North as a tantalizing, brooding hero and Syd, as a feisty, strong woman of many talents

Also out today is Holly Nicole Hoxter's YA novel, The Snowball Effect.  Kirkus says:  Expertly weaving together quirky family stories, realistic characters and tough decisions, Hoxter presents a unique coming-of-age story, which highlights that teens need not just go with the flow but can and should control their own destinies.


Congrats, Alex and Holly!!!
