Our eleventh Buzz Books: Young Adult gives readers the special excitement of being among the first to sample the best in forthcoming young adult novels months ahead of their actual publication.
Two of BookExpo’s Young Adult Buzz Editor’s Panel picks are here with substantial pre-publication excerpts: Julia Drake’s The Last True Poets Of The Sea and Erin Stewart’s Scars Like Wings. Sisters Maika Moulite and Maritza Moulite share their love of Haitian culture in Dear Haiti, Love Alaine while friends Gilly Segal and Kimberly Jones offer a gritty story of contemporary racism and chaos. And Sara Ella reimagines the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale about a mermaid in Coral.
Start reading the bestsellers of tomorrow right now to see why reviewers rave with comments like these: I love this edition of Buzz Books YA. It encompassed a wide variety of YA subgenres, including some that I would never have known about. It made me hungry to read the upcoming releases. I really look forward to future editions of this catalogue. I love that these types of samplers are even in existence. I feel like they broaden readers’ ideas of YA.—Reviewer from New Jersey
