JUST ARRIVED Check out some of our newest titles for young adults. Heroine, by Mindy McGinnis, sees a girl fall into addiction after a car accident, while Alyssa Sheinmel’s A Danger to Herself and Others follows a teenager who swears she’s perfectly fine, despite what those around her say. Brenda Rufener’s Since We Last Spoke tells the Romeo-and-Juliet-like tale of two teenagers split apart by a family feud, and Jaye Robin Brown’s The Meaning of Birds likewise looks at tragedy and grief. We have two different dystopias this week: Samira Ahmed’s Internment takes place in a future where all Muslim-Americans are uprooted and imprisoned, while Kat Falls has published Undaunted, the second in a series where everything east of the Mississippi has been rendered uninhabitable by a virus. In fantasy, Hal Schrieve’s Out of Salem features a new zombie and an undercover werewolf trying to deal with life in Oregon; women use magic to fly and fight in We Rule the Night by Claire Eliza Bartlett; Arthurian legend meets spaceships in Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy’s Once & Future; a girl learns she can communicate with her kingdom’s animal protectors in Nahoko Uehashi’s The Beast Player; and Cassandra Claire releases a sequel to her Shadowhunters series, The Red Scrolls of Magic. A number of authors and artists came together the create FTL, Y’All, an anthology of stories about what might happen if faster-than-light travel were suddenly cheap and easily accessible. Finally, White Rose by Kip Wilson takes a sobering look at the real-life, youth-led World War II resistance movement in Germany.
