The 2010-ers are a group of writers whose first Young Adult or Middle Grade novel will be out in 2010; books like: THE LINE (Teri Hall) - I'm a sucker for the everyone-is-dead story (The Stand, The Last Ship, On the Beach, that horrible Night of the Comet movie). This has that same people-in-isolation intrigue.
THE SECRET YEAR (Jennifer Hubbard) - a secret relationship with a tragic end, journal left behind...
SEA (Heidi Kling) - I love the post-Tsunami Indonesia setting, the mysteriously disappeared mother, forbidden relationship.
THE FOURTH STALL (Chris Rylander) - I don't usually read middle-grade, but his bio made me laugh. Bet his book will, too.
I could go on, but I'll let you check it out yourself instead: http://community.livejournal.com/10_ers/.
And I'm part of the group now, too. Which is a lot better than being a jelly donut.
