New books!

It's July and a young adult's thoughts naturally turn to summer internships or to the end of the world as we know it. Either way, Flux has you covered.

Alex Richard's first novel, Back Talk, is officially available. You only wish you could land an internship like this one.

And, of course, Canadian provocateur Tim Carter has unleashed his apocalyptic demons in Epoch. Fans of a certain boy wizard will find this one to be a nice palatte cleanser (and when you meet the demons, you'll know what I mean by "cleanse") before July 21st's big to-do.

Woo hoo! Thanks for posting about Back Talk. I had a contest on my blog and gave away a signed copy. I got some pretty fun responses.
EPOCH looks pretty rad, too. Thanks for the heads up!

Summer never looked better for reading. Best wishes to Alexgirl and Tim.

But all these books can be a real financial problem for parents. On vacation, my daughter instantly read all the books we brought, so we found a Barnes and Nizzloble, and got her the newest LIONBOY, Spinelli's STARGIRL, and another. Two days later, she'd devoured all three and was re-reading. Luckily, we found an independent bookstore nearby (The Island Bookseller in Sea Pines on Hilton Head) and stocked up again. By the time we left, she was bugging me to take her to the bookstore in the airport!

Now that we're home, it's library time. Or she can just re-read all her Harry Potters.

The Island Bookseller, btw, is a Mom/Daughter establishment, and daughter is a big fan of Simone Elkeles, and stocks all three Elkeles novels in their nice YA section.
