New Fiction for Teens!

We purchase a lot of new books, and here are some that look really good.  Place them on hold, or call the library to reserve them, and come pick them up!

Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo.  1954 San Francisco is not a good time for two Chinese-American girls to fall in love.

Only the Pretty Lies by Rebekah Crane.  When a racist mural is discovered at her high school, Amoris's world is turned upside down.

Witches of Willow Cove by Josh Roberts.   The new stranger in town offers to teach young witches her craft.  Is she really being helpful?

Snow Fell Three Graves Deep: voices from the Donner Party by Allan Wolf.  A new re-telling of one of the most incredible--and chilling--tales of survival.  

A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee.  Felicity returns to the Dalloway School after her girlfriend's tragic death and meets a new student investigating the school's occult history.

This Will Be Funny Someday by Katie Henry.  A 16-year old girl accidentally walks into a stand-up comedy club and discovers she's a "natural."

Excuse Me While I Ugly Cry by Joya Gaffney. When a girl's journal filled with "lists" of what she does and doesn't like goes missing, one of the lists ends up on Instagram.  Someone is blackmailing her, and she must get that book back.

The Left-Handed Booksellers of London by Garth Nix.  Set in an alternative 1983, an art student searches for her father and instead meets up with a world of magic and myth.

There are lots more titles, and we'll suggest some more soon.
