Recently Added to the YA Bookshelf

Taking a look at some of the most recent additions gracing the shelves of our YA department:

Mirror, Mirror by Cara Delevingne

Sixteen-year-old friends Red, Leo, Rose and Naomi are misfits; still figuring out who they are and who they want to be. Life isn’t perfect, but music unites them, and they’re excited about what the future holds for their band, Mirror, Mirror. That is, until Naomi vanishes before being pulled unconscious out of the river. She’s left fighting for her life in a coma. The police claim it was a failed suicide attempt, but her friends aren’t convinced. Will Naomi ever wake? What, or perhaps who, led her to that hospital bed?

If There’s No Tomorrow by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lena is always looking forward to tomorrow, especially at the start of her senior year. She’s ready to pack in as much friend time as possible, to finish college applications and to maybe let her childhood best friend Sebastian know how she really feels about him. For Lena, the upcoming year is going to be epic, one of opportunities and chances. Until one choice, one moment, destroys everything.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. However, many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King. To win a place at the Court, she must defy him and face the consequences.

Thunderhead (Arc of a Scythe #2) by Neal Shusterman

A year has passed since Rowan has gone off grid. Since then he has become an urban legend, a vigilante snuffing out corrupt scythes in a trial by fire.

Thrown together against their will in the class production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year.

Eight Days on Planet Earth by Cat Jordan

To the universe, eight days is a mere blip. To Matty Jones, however, it may be just enough time to change his life. On the hot summer day Matty’s dad leaves for good, a strange girl suddenly appears in the empty field next to the Jones farm. The very field where a spaceship supposedly landed fifty years ago.

Together at Midnight by Jennifer Castle

Teens Kendall and Max witness a tragic accident during the holidays and, racked with guilt, accept a dare to perform seven random acts of kindness to strangers by New Year’s Eve.

Gunslinger Girl by Lyndsay Ely

Seventeen-year-old Serendipity Jones inherited two things from her mother: a pair of six shooters and perfect aim. Those won’t get her far on the farming commune, but in the decadent, dangerous city of Cessation, a fast draw will buy her freedom. So Serendipity heads west, where lawlessness is a way of life for those on the losing side of the Civil War.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

When Stevie Bell begins her first year at a famous private school in Vermont, she plans to solve the cold case involving the kidnapping of the founder’s wife and daughter shortly after the school opened in 1936.
