New Fiction for Teens!

We're still purchasing 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!

Ruthless Gods by Emily Duncan.  It's "set in a Gothic icy world where shadows whisper," so what could happen?

Lost City by Amanda Hocking.  Who abandoned Ulla 19 years ago in a remote village?

Grown by Tiffany Jackson.  An R&B artist spots Enchanted's talent at an audition, but the next day she wakes up with blood on her hands.  What happened?

Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson.  The year is 3102 and Andra has awakened from a cryonic sleep--1000 years after she was supposed to!

Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam.  A young teen is incarcerated for a crime he didn't commit.

Burn by Patrick Ness.  A girl and her dad are forced to hire a dragon to help them work their farm.

Blazeworth Games by Amparo Ortiz.  Another dragon story:  the Blazeworth World Cup has 16 dragons and their riders fighting for glory.

Sanctuary by Paola Mendoza and Abby Sher.  One of the founders of the Women's March writes her first novel about an undocumented immigrant in 2032 Vermont.  All citizens are "chipped" and tracked, but somehow she has so far evaded the government.

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