Two from Barbara Shoup

We're releasing two books by one author April and May, and I've got them both here on my shelf.

In April, we're releasing Barbara Shoup's latest YA novel, Everything You Want, which Barbara wrote on her PEN/Phyllis Nayolor Working Writer's Fellowship. It's a tremendously good YA about exactly how much happiness money can buy (and it will be of particular interest to those involved in the various college YA discussions presently going on around the interwebs).






The next book is remarkable for two reasons. 1) It's the first paperback edition of Shoup's acclaimed YA Wish You Were Here, which was voted the book teachers, librarians, and readers wanted to see back in print in a CBC/ALA poll. 2) It's far and away the orangest book we've ever published. Really. Line a bunch of 'em up in parallel lines on a football field and watch out for the 737s.
Check them both out.

Everything You Want also has my favorite Flux cover ever (I think I mentioned that before). I've been looking forward to its release for awhile.
