JUST ARRIVED  Take a look at some of our new books for young adult readers.  Some of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting tell their stories in Parkland Speaks.  Catch up on history with The Electric War by Mike Winchell and find out about how Thomas Edison fought Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse for the right to provide electricity to American homes, or open up a graphic novel biography about the orator and escaped slave Frederick Douglass with David F. Walker’s The Life of Frederick Douglass.  Neal Bascomb’s The Grand Escape details how a group of British soldiers broke out of a German prison during World War I.  Find out how to pay critical attention to an avalanche of information in Michael Miller’s Fake News.  Learn about two common medical conditions with Amy C. Rea’s Living with Learning Disabilities and Jennifer Connor-Smith’s Living with Panic Disorder.  For science-inclined readers, try Extreme Longevity by Karen Latchana Kenney for a look at some of Earth’s longest-living organisms.  In fiction, Black Enough is a collection of short stories by Black authors, while Inventing Victoria, by Tonya Bolden, is about a young woman making her way in a post-Civil-War Washington, D.C.  Arwen Elys Dayton’s Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful is about a near-future (and, later, far-future) time when genetically repairing, altering, and enhancing the human body is a basic fact of life.  How She Died, How I Lived by Mary Crockett is a story about living with survivor’s guilt.  Finding Baba Yaga, by award-winning author Jane Yolen, starts out in modern times but winds its way through poetry into a more timeless land.  Rachel Cohn’s My Almost Flawless Tokyo Dream Life features a teenager entering the world of an ultra-rich international school in Japan, while Flawed by Andrea Dorfman is based on a true story – and an Emmy-nominated short film – about the author’s coming to terms with her love for a plastic surgeon and her loathing of his job.
