Release Day: A Love Story..., Sea, So Many Boys

Three new YA books are out today... The Horn Book says A Love Story Starring My Dead Best Friend by Emily Horner "has something for everyone: road trips, fortuitous stranger encounters, friendship drama, optimistic romanticism, and a fresh treatment of a lesbian heroine."   They featured it and Emily in this month's newsletter as one of four new YA "Writers worth watching"*

In Sea by Heidi R. Kling, fifteen year old Sienna Jones reluctantly accompanies her father on a relief trip to post-tsunami Indonesia finding an unexpected romance and facing her own post-traumatic stress related to her mother's disappearance three years prior.

Also out today is Suzanne Young's second book So Many Boys, the follow-up to The Naughty List which came out earlier this year (my thoughts here) - pick up both and settle in to your beach chair!

Congrats Emily, Heidi and Suz!!!

*and in a super-nice surprise, guess who one of the other four was...
