JUST ARRIVED  We have many new books for teens on our shelves this week.  In historical fiction, My Name is Victoria by Lucy Worsley looks at the childhood of a young princess through the eyes of her companion, while Justina Ireland’s Dread Nation takes post-Civil War politics and adds zombies.  Dawn Ius reimagines the mystery of Lizzie Borden for the modern age in Lizzie.  For more of the fantastic, try The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw, where a town suffers under a curse for two hundred summers until two friends seek to break it; join four friends setting out on the ultimate road trip in a futuristic car in Andy Marino’s Autonomous; or follow a young colonist as she tries to figure out what – or who – is killing her crewmates on a supposedly deserted region in Tangled Planet by Kate Blair.  For a look at modern life, try one of the following titles: The Summer of Jordi Perez by Amy Spalding features a romance between two interns at a California fashion boutique; Love & Other Carnivorous Plants by Florence Gonsalves is a story of coping with mental illness; in Moonrise by Sarah Crossan the family of a young man on death row faces his impending execution; What I Leave Behind by Alison McGhee features a sixteen year old boy coping with tragedy in his life by doing invisible good deeds for others; and in My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma a young woman finds out her life can’t be predicted by her beloved movies.
