Greenglass House by Kate Milford. As lucky as we are to have Kate as a bookseller, we are even luckier to have her as the author of the best middle grade novel of 2014. At press time, Kate is a National Book Award nominee, Edgar Award nominee, Nebula Award nominee, and an exceptional juggler (literally. She used to work at a Renaissance Faire, because of course she did). Place your order for a signed & personalized copy of Greenglass House at any time, and we’ll happily get it to you.
The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman. On sale 5/12/15. What would you give for the one change you want more than anything, and would the price you pay be worth it? Exquisitely plotted and masterfully written, The Cost of All Things is easily the best YA debut of 2015. Says author Lauren Myracle: "“The most creepily awesome cautionary tale EVER. Magic—or hekame—does exist, and wishes can be granted. . . but always at a cost. Brilliant, provocative, and absolutely spellbinding.” We’re honored to be hosting Maggie for her first launch event on 5/12/15. Orders for signed copies can be placed at any time.
Charlie, Presumed Dead by Anne Heltzel. On sale 6/2/15. Lena and Aubrey don’t have much in common when they first meet at a funeral… aside from the fact that they were both dating the deceased, and neither knew the other existed. Anne Heltzel takes her characters, and her readers, on a breathless and thrilling journey across continents in persuit of the truth. Anne, presumed alive, will be appearing at McNally Jackson on 6/2. Please place any signed copy orders by 5/25/15.
Skyscraping by Cordelia Jensen. On sale 6/2/15. Says Kirkus Reviews: “Jensen’s spare free-verse poems and accessible imagery realistically portray the fraught moments of adolescent identity formation with great empathy. Compelling snapshots of contemporary family drama and the AIDS epidemic as captured through a teen’s eyes." Cordelia’s McNally Jackson author event is on 6/9/15. Please place your signed copy order by 6/4/15.
Those Girls by Lauren Saft. On sale 6/9/15. It’s different for girls, and Lauren Saft knows it.

Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten. On sale 7/7/15. Meet Lynn Weingarten, your new hero of realistic YA fiction.

Damage Done by Amanda Panitch. On sale 7/21/15. In this breathlessly fast-paced thrill ride, family can be a real killer.

Please place your signed book orders by 7/15/15.
