Sarah's Holiday Pick 2017: "I can’t promise this will be easy.  In fact, it almost definitely won’t be.  But if you’re looking for a book that knocks you out in every way, this is the one.  Told in dazzling bursts of verse, we follow William through his brother’s violent death and the elevator ride that takes him toward revenge.  Except that far from being the normal uneventful descent to his building’s lobby, on every floor Will is joined by someone he thought he’d never see again…because he’s already mourned their deaths as a result of gun violence.  The short yet powerful chapters are perfect for the literary-minded as well as reluctant readers.  Just don’t plan on being able to put it down before hitting the bottom floor."

Published: HarperTeen - September 5th, 2017

Sarah's Holiday Pick 2017: "Mateo and Rufus live in a world almost exactly like ours.  Except that a mysterious company called Death-Cast makes phone calls every morning to everyone who is going to die that day.  And Mateo and Rufus just got theirs.  Normally, a Decker would spend their End Day saying goodbye to everyone they love, but for various reasons, Rufus and Mateo don’t have that option.  Luckily there’s an app called Last Friend that’s able to connect them, to each other and maybe, through that, to the rest of the world.  This unique examination of love, loss and life captures the best and worst of the world in an addictively witty package."

Published: Flatiron Books - January 31st, 2017

Sarah's Holiday Pick 2017: "Life on the desolate island of Trisda is pretty hopeless for Scarlett and her sister, Tella.  Trapped there with a controlling and abusive father, they’ve always dreamt of a life where they can call the shots.  They’ve long abandoned their childhood fantasies of escaping with the magical and mysterious Caraval players who travel the realm…until they get a letter with three tickets to that year’s performance.  But things don’t go as planned when the performance turns out to be a game, one in which the winner has to find the vanished Tella and the consequences may be more dire than they could have imagined.  With the magical atmosphere of The Night Circus and the high-stakes plotting of The Hunger Games, this is a perfect whirlwind adventure for fantasy fans."
