Last week was Book Expo America, the giant tradeshow and social event for publishers, booksellers, and authors, in NYC. There were a ton of books to see and authors to meet, a whirlwind of excitement and book love--here were some of the highlights:
  • Veronica Roth.  She is, of course, even lovlier than her author photo, incredibly interesting and approachable.  We chatted about the Divergent filming and in an interview that you'll see in coming weeks, a tiny taste of what to expect in Allegiant.  At the party for Allegiant you had to choose a faction for yourself to go on your name tag. I'll admit, it gave me pause, having to choose... which would you pick?
  • Cassandra Clare.  Okay, don't hate me, but at the event for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones we were treated to a super secret sneak peek of the movie!  The clip was about 5 minutes long and I'm not even kidding when I say they had men in black walking around making sure no one was doing a little iPhone bootlegging. We saw an action sequence of Clary speeding home after a call from her mother and encountering the most insane looking demon creature when she gets there.  That's all I'll say because I don't want to spoil even 5 minutes of the movie for you--it looks like it's going to be that good.  And now I want to read City of Bones all over again.
  • Rainbow Rowell's (Eleanor & Park) new book, Fangirl.  Read an advance on the plane ride home--totally amazing. I'm convinced she's going to become one of those YA author rockstars, like John Green but without the Nerd Fighters. Yet...
  • Young Adult Buzz Panel: Five top editors discussed their favorite teen books for the fall - the first one was Fangirl.  See above.  Here are all the picks:
  1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell - Cath and Wren are tight knit identical twins who write fan fiction about the world of Simon Snow (ala Harry Potter) but their bond changes when they go to college and each forges her individuality--one by choice and one by necessity.
  2. Tandem by Anna Jarzab - As a fan of Matched, I think I'm going to love this. The first book in The Many-Worlds trilogy, 16-year-old Sasha Lawson finds herself cast as a princess in a parallel world and as the story progresses she is torn between two lives and two loves.
  3. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill -  Really looking forward to this one. The premise of taking actions in present day to change things for your younger self reminds me of Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler's The Future of Us with some Terminator II scary scientific breakthroughs that could destroy the world thrown in.
  4. Entangled by Amy Rose Capetta - Capetta's agent described it this way: “If the TV show Firefly were a YA novel, it would be Entangled.”  Enough said.
  5. If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan - Wow. Set in Iran, two young women, secretly in love, who can never be together because being gay is punishable by death. Unless one of them undergoes gender reassignment surgery, which is legal.  A complex and original story of love and sacrifice. Sign me up.
