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.
Congrats Emily, Heidi and Suz!!!
