It’s Live! Cover Reveal: Seeds for the Swarm (Sim Kern), Plus Giveaway! ~ US/CAN Only

June 10th, 2022 by

Hi, YABCers!

Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for

Seeds for the Swarm (Sim Kern),

releasing November 1, 2022 from Stelliform Press!

 

 

 

Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Sim Kern:

I had my first panic attack about climate change in 1999, when I was in the eighth grade, brought on by binge-watching Animal Planet when I was home sick with a fever. My environmental fears made me feel extremely isolated throughout my teenage years from apathetic peers and climate-denying adults. When I became a high school English teacher in the 2010’s, I thought, surely amid this Young Adult publishing boom, there’s got to be some titles centering the climate crisis—but I found precious little. In 2013, I decided to write one myself, and that book eventually became Seeds for the Swarm.

I wrote Rylla McCracken for everyone who’s ever wanted to go to the halls of power, shout at politicians, “Why don’t you do something?” and actually set events in motion that would change the world. This series explores what would happen if a group of passionate, flawed college kids gained the power to remake the world. What kind of beautiful and terrible and necessary messes would they make? And what kind of civilization could we build in the aftermath?

About The Book: Poison Forest

There has been a string of disappearances in the Triumvir of Corundum. Someone is stealing royal children, and Thedra’s childhood sweetheart Dette, the princess of a neighboring kingdom, is the latest to go missing. When Thedra suspects the sorcerer she blames for her mother’s death is behind Dette’s disappearance, she refuses to let him harm anyone else. She sets out with the help of a dashing soldier and a secretive servant girl to find and rescue Dette before it’s too late. Thedra would do anything to stop the disappearances and save her friend–even cross a cursed forest that brings her nightmares to life. But one of her companions is hiding something, and the forest seems to want her dead. To defeat the sorcerer’s twisted magic, she must face her worst fears and risk losing what she wants most: the freedom to love who she chooses.

Sugaring Off

by Gillian French

Release date: November 1st, 2022

Publisher: Algonquin YR

 

 

About the Book

Left partially deaf by an early childhood tragedy which ended in her father’s incarceration, seventeen-year-old Owl is now a

tracker, an explorer, a wildlife enthusiast, and always her freest self while hiking the steep forested acres surrounding her aunt

and uncle’s maple sugar farm, now her home. Owl and her aunt and uncle never speak of the brutal attack that brought her to

them, the day Owl’s father threw her down the stairs. On the day she confronts a stranger trespassing among the maples,

Owl’s sheltered existence is blown wide open by Cody—the magnetic, dangerous young man hired to help with the sugaring

off. Experienced in ways that Owl is naïve, Cody seems to see her, the real her, in a way no one else does. Together, they

challenge each other, learn to question their preconceptions, and risk a romance their families are desperate to stop.

But when Owl learns that some part of Cody is compelled toward self-destruction, Owl must make a difficult decision about

their relationship at the same time she’s grappling with her father’s recent release from prison. And when a seemingly

motiveless local murder draws attention to Cody, Owl realizes that Cody is in far more serious trouble than anyone

knows—and it’s followed him to her mountain.

About The Book:

Today is the day Jo Monarch has been wishing on the moon about her entire life. It’s the day of the Lineup, when she could be selected to leave her life in the Ashes behind. The day she could move across the mountains to a glittering, rich future.

Once Jo is plucked from the Lineup, the real test begins. She still needs to impress the New Georgia Reps at tonight’s Gala, and her path forward leads straight to Cove Wells. The damaged stepson of one of the Reps, Cove has been groomed as an emotional weapon, taught that love is a tool — and he’s set on breaking Jo’s heart next.

When a riot breaks out back in the Ashes the night of the Gala, Jo’s dreams might all go up in smoke. Can she really have everything she’s ever wished for… when it means leaving all her loved ones behind in the fire?

Harper Glenn’s debut is as gripping as it is prescient, an unflinching meditation on whether love can save us from ourselves, and what it takes to be born anew

Publisher: Sword and Silk Books

About the Book

After a daredevil play on the baseball field leads to a four-minute long cardiac arrest, seventeen-year-old Ali Benton is lucky to be alive. Now she wants to make the most of her second chance—and she’s not going to let a pesky little pacemaker, or her helicopter dad, slow her down.Between chairing multiple school clubs and working two jobs to help his single mother pay the bills, Max Delaney has got every second of every day planned. His childhood nemesis, Ali, doesn’t figure into any of them. But when her overprotective father offers him cash to keep an eye on her and steer her away from baseball, his plans change.Ali can’t figure out why Max, the condescending know-it-all, is sticking to her side like Krazy Glue, and Max can barely tolerate headstrong Ali. But opposites attract, and before long, fighting turns to kissing. Even as sparks fly, the secrets they’ve been keeping threaten to tear them apart. When Max learns Ali’s been putting herself in harm’s way and playing ball in secret, he struggles with how to tell her father. If he tattles, he’ll lose her trust. If he doesn’t, he may lose her heart…in more ways than one.

It’s Live! Cover Reveal: BELITTLED WOMEN (Amanda Sellet), Plus Giveaway! ~ US/CAN Only

February 10th, 2022 by

Cover-Reveal---purple.jpg

Hi, YABCers!

Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for BELITTLED WOMEN (Amanda Sellet)  releasing on November 29, 2022 from Clarion Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

 

Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Amanda Sellet: 

Today I am thrilled to share the playful perfection of the BELITTLED WOMEN cover, designed by Natalie Sousa and Samira Iravani, with a brilliant illustration by Monique Aimee! From the fresh palette and floral accents to the retro-chic stylings of the characters, this cover captures the irreverent spirit of my modern riff on (you guessed it) Little Women.

The familiar story of Christmas mornings, sibling ties that bind (and gag), and crushing on the boy next door gets twisted like a balloon animal this time around. Take it from Jo, who finds the family re-enactment business too March to handle:  

“It might have been easier if I’d found allies in my sisters, but nothing bothered Meg, who maxed out at about sixty-five percent consciousness, and Amy ate up the attention with a spoon. That left me on the outside, the problem child with the bad attitude—like one of the kids from The Sound of Music smashing a guitar and screaming, Screw this—I hate folk songs! in the middle of the cuckoo-clock number.

I thought they were nuts, they thought I was a jerk, and then we all strapped on our bonnets and pretended to be the happiest family in the history of books.”

For more of Jo’s grumbling, Amy’s grandstanding, and all the Alcott puns you never knew you needed, check out BELITTLED WOMEN on November 29.

About the Book:

BelittedWomen cover reveal 1

Jo Porter has had enough Little Women to last a lifetime. As if being named after the sappiest family in literature wasn’t sufficiently humiliating, Jo’s mom, ahem Marmee, leveled up her Alcott obsession by turning their rambling old house into a sad-sack tourist attraction. Now Jo, along with siblings Meg and Bethamy (yes, that’s two March sisters in one), spends all summer acting out sentimental moments at Little Women Live!, where she can feel her soul slowly dying.

So when a famed photojournalist arrives to document the show, Jo seizes on the glimpse of another life: artsy, worldly, and fast-paced. It doesn’t hurt that the reporter’s teenage son is also eager to get up close and personal with Jo—to the annoyance of her best friend, aka the boy next door (who is definitely not called Laurie). All Jo wants is for someone to see the person behind the prickliness and pinafores. But when she gets a little too real about her frustration with the family biz, Jo will have to make peace with kitsch and kin before their livelihood suffers a fate worse than Beth.

About The Book: REBEL, BRAVE AND BRUTAL

RebelBraveandBrutal cv

The gripping sequel to Winter, White and Wicked that boasts the thrills of Mad Max: Fury Road and the icy magic of Frozen

Sylvi Quine, the best rig driver on Layce, has braved the dangers of the Shiv Road to save her friend and learned the truth of her power over Winter. Now, she’s joined the rebels working to take down the Majority. Her magic could change the course of their fight, and she agrees to meet the king of Paradyia to offer an exchange: the healing powers of the Pool of Begynd for his army.

The journey won’t be easy. To get there, Sylvi will have to navigate the Kol Sea, crossing through Winter’s storms and swarms of her Abaki—all while outrunning the Majority, who have sent their best Kol Master to track her down and bring her in, dead or alive. 
  
But she isn’t traveling alone. Mars Dresden knows Sylvi is the key to freeing Layce, and demands she train like it. Kyn, the boy with stone flesh and a soft heart, is bound to Sylvi in more ways than one, a connection that both hurts and heals. And Lenore, Sylvi’s best friend, insists the Majority pay for what they’ve done to her parents. Even though her crew believes in her, Sylvi’s still learning to use her power, and Winter’s whispers are constant.

Will she be able to control Winter when it matters most? Or will this be the end of the rebellion?
