New Release Spotlight!
Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin
Our YA Buzz Book for the month of March, this book comes highly lauded by Teen Press Corps’ own, Ivy! He says, “Foul Is Fair was savage with a perfect tone, black and bloody. The concept feels fresh, the characters were clear and bright, and the writing was the poisoned cherry on top. I love Hannah Capin’s style (author of 2019’s Dead Queens Club, a high-school version of Henry the VIII’s wives), and hope she continues to do these fiercely delightful retellings.” Read Ivy’s full review here.
Books We’re Anticipating
Gina can’t wait for The Midnight Lie by Marie Rutkoski! She says, “Like no meet cute I’ve ever seen before. THE MIDNIGHT LIE kept me up far past midnight. Rutkoski’s foreshadowing is a current that carried me all the way to the last page. With endearing banter, an f/f spy couple, and secret forms of magic, this was a wonderful world to immerse myself in.” Pre-order the book here!
Eugenia’s excited to get her hands on a final copy of Heartstopper Vol. 1! She says, “I guess I missed the big, fat ‘Volume 1’ on the cover, so when I got to the ending, MY HEART STOPPED. This is a beautifully told story for the romantics at heart. You will feel the nerves, the butterflies, and the frustration right alongside Charlie and Nick. I can’t wait for volume 2!” Pre-order this great graphic novel here.
Leila is looking forward to handselling Deb Caletti’s upcoming novel, Girl, Unframed! She says, “I love Deb Caletti’s writing and the respect that she shows her characters. In this book she does justice to the difficulty of the transition from girl to woman. There’s mystery, intrigue, and feminism–lots to keep the pages turning and to give readers plenty of food for thought once they’re through.” Pre-order the book here!
