Teen Thursday: Rachel R’s Latest Loves!

A look at some YA books that bookseller Rachel R has been lovin’ lately! Rachel always has some amazing recommendations up her sleeve… check ’em out below:

9781401286200_810a2Black Canary: Ignite by Meg Cabot

“I’ve always loved Dinah, and this graphic novel is full of the best parts of this incredible character. The art by Cara McGee is absolutely perfect for the story. I only wish it was twice (or three times) the length as I didn’t want it to end!”



9781536200966_fc007The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta

“This book blew me away. The deftness of Capetta’s writing pulls off what in another’s author’s hands would come off as cheap or silly. I was particularly drawn to the representation of the landscapes’ flora and fauna as characters just as important as the humans. This transhumanism invokes such a magical aesthetic that enhances an already wonderful story.”

“This book was a blast to read. I was swept up from the first page and read it all in one sitting! I loved the dynamic between Kya and Fuse, and the incorporation of internet/fandom bullying was particularly inspired.”




9781524738174_cfcc9The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh

“Oh my god!! I adored this book beyond all measure. A perfect blend of thriller, mystery, and supernatural, The Beautiful drew me in from page one. It kept me guessing, and even as I started to piece together all the moving parts, Ahdieh still surprised me in the best of ways.”
