The Bookseller Children’s Book of the Month

A rich and truly heartwarming story set during the First World War, perfect for fans of War HorseThe Camomile Lawn and Cogheart. 

Clarry and Peter live in a tall, narrow, lonely house in London. With no mother and an uninterested father, they entertain themselves with old books and an atlas of the stars.



Each year, Clarry eagerly awaits their summer trips to Cornwall, with its purple moor and glittering sea. But best of all, it’s where they are reunited with their adored cousin Rupert. Their Cornwall summers are magical, and there’s nowhere Clarry and Peter are happier.



But as new friendships are made, promises are formed, and Clarry discovers her passion for learning, those magical summers soon become distant memories. And then the First World War arrives—and Clarry discovers for the first time that knowing nothing is sometimes better than knowing too much.



Desperate to keep those summer memories alive, Clarry can only hope that her friendships survive the war...

Each Casson child is named for a particular hue—Cadmium, Saffron, Indigo and Rose—so it’s no wonder that family life in the Casson household is colorful and chaotic.

Saffy is coming to terms with the discovery of her adoption; Indigo is fighting off bullies and making music; Caddy fears she might be getting cold feet before her wedding; and Rose—well, Rose is just trying not to let her voice get swallowed up in the mayhem.

 “The author blends a generous heaping of humor and joy with a dose of pain in a memorable portrait of a vastly human family. The only disappointment for readers may be that McKay's affecting conclusion arrives too soon.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Wittily observed. . . full of warmth, vitality and irrepressible good humour.” —The Guardian
“Readers submerged in the happy din of the family’s conversations will wish they could be adopted by the Cassons.”—Kirkus Reviews,

“The Casson family is an endearingly eccentric bunch. . . Delicious phrasing and a wonderfully descriptive style add further to the sense of British eccentricity.” —School Library Journal

For fans of Lara Williamson’s The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean in an Armchair.


Binny Cornwallis’s life has been tough lately: her dad’s death has left the family grieving and in debt, and her dreadful Aunty Violet has given away her beloved dog Max. In a fit of pique, Binny tells her aunt she wishes she were dead, and Aunty Violet promptly obliges.

The Corwallis family relocates to the coast to live in Aunty Violet’s old house, which she has inexplicably left to Binny. To escape the guilt of almost definitely killing her own aunt, Binny distracts herself with seal-watching excursions and bike rides with her newfound enemy, Gareth next door. Meanwhile, her little brother is causing chaos as an aspiring chicken-rearer. Will life ever be the same?

“The writing is gorgeous, clear as water; the characters vivid and lively; the story so real each moment of loss, fear, delight and love is absolutely visceral.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Fans of McKay’s Casson books will warmly welcome the delightful and eccentric Cornwallis family. . . The humorous and poignant interactions among Binny’s caring older sister, independent younger brother, and insightful mother are the heart of the novel.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“This novel combines effervescent everyday-life storytelling with subtle exploration of the ripples of loss that shape young lives, and McKay fans will celebrate the introduction of an engaging new heroine.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

 “BINNY FOR SHORT shows a mistress of her medium at work.” —The Guardian
“I read this book with total pleasure—mingled with total envy. Oh, at every page, I wished so hard that I had written it!” Stephanie Burgis, author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart

The Conroys are no ordinary family. For a start, they don't have a television. Nor are they allowed to keep pets. And Mr. and Mrs. Conroy never take their daughters—Ruth, Naomi, Rachel and Phoebe—on holiday.

But then Mr. and Mrs. Conroy inherit £5000, and, to their daughters’ dismay, decide to spend it redecorating the house over the summer. So the girls are packed off to Big Grandma's house for the holidays, where lots of chores and horribly long walks await them.

At first it seems as though Big Grandma is determined to put a stop to any fun. But, being Conroys, the girls soon find novel ways to entertain themselves, and start having as many adventures and mishaps as usual…and after a while, even Big Grandma doesn't seem so bad…

“McKay has a real gift for amusing dialogue and descriptions…Delightful.” Kirkus Reviews

“Warmhearted…an ample supply of chuckles. Readers will be tickled by the children’s attempts to evade their canny grandparent and will be touched by the affection that blossoms between generations.” —Publishers Weekly

About the author:
Hilary McKay is one of Britain’s best-loved children’s authors. Her books have won the Whitbread (now Costa) Children’s Book Award twice, the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize, the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Gold Award, and countless other accolades.As Elizabeth O’Reilly of British Council Literature writes, “The families McKay depicts are usually endearingly eccentric and chaotic, flawed but lovable, and she creates authentic and well-rounded child characters with whom young readers can easily identify. Critics often praise McKay’s talent for domestic comedy, which enables her to address serious issues (from everyday worries to bullying, adoption and family secrets) with lightness and humour. McKay writes with humanity and compassion and depicts her characters’ emotions acutely and perceptively, yet her comic touch, along with lively dialogue, maintains an upbeat tone throughout her stories.” Hilary lives in the beautiful Peak District in Derbyshire, England.

Praise for
Tyler James Smith’s
UNSTOPPABLE MOSES

Moses’s journey is...entertaining with the snarky footnotes and internal monologues that accompany readers from page one. The author has created characters devoid of the saccharine happily ever after and they feel real. Perfect for mature high school students who love John Green and Jesse Andrews.” —School Library Journal

Manuscript available.

A Notable Title in the Publishers Lunch Fall/Winter Buzz Books


A coming-of-age story of tragedy and redemption for fans of Stephen Chbosky and Jesse Andrews.

After accidentally burning down a bowling alley, seventeen-year-old Moses Hill has one week as a camp counselor to prove to the authorities—and to himself—that he isn't a worthless shithead who belongs in jail.

Moses and his cousin Charlie were best friends, wisecracking pranksters, unstoppable forces of teenage energy—until the night they became accidental arsonists and set in motion a chain of events that left Moses alone, guilt-stricken, and most likely trapped in his dead-end town. 

Then Moses gets a lucky break: the chance to prove that the incident should be expunged from his record. But tragedy seems to follow him wherever he goes, and this time, it might just stop him in his tracks.

UNSTOPPABLE MOSES is radiant; one of those rare debut novels that shines with humor, love, compassion, and hope, with a cast of unforgettable characters that jump off the pages and into your heart. Tyler James Smith is a masterful storyteller.”
—Andrew Smith, Michael L. Printz Honor and Boston Globe-Horn Book Award author of Grasshopper Jungle

“When people say reading makes us more empathetic, they are talking about books like UNSTOPPABLE MOSES. A lyrical, hilarious, so-real-it-hurts debut that reminds us all just how much we have to lose, and why it’s important to never give up. I’m so happy this book is in the world.” —Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock, Carnegie Medal-shortlisted author of The Smell of Other People’s Houses

About the Author:
Tyler James Smith is a 27-year-old aide in a therapeutic school for troubled children. He holds a BA in creative writing and lives in Chicago.

Ancak Parsons'ın vahşi hayal gücü onu okkulte sürükledi - eğer roket bilimini bir gerçeğe döndürüyorsa , neden büyüyü de gerçeğe döndürmesin?

Dört genç, en sevdikleri romanının yazarı olan Fatima Ro ile tanışabileceklerini hiç ummazken bir anda tanışıverirler. Fatima Ro onları kendi eksantrik hayatını görmeye davet eder. Aniden yaşamları büyülenir ve idollerine daha da yaklaştıklarında, kendilerinin en karanlık sırlarını bir bir ona anlatırlar.

Fakat bir yıl sonra, Miri, Soleil, Jonah ve Penny, Fatima'nın yeni yayımlanan Genç Yetişkin  romanında kendi sırlarına yer verdiğini keşfedince şaşkına dönerler. Ortalığa ifşa edilen sırları yıkıcıdır ve ilgi odağı olmaktan kaçamazlar. Arkadaşlarının aralarındaki görüşmeleri, e-postaları ve günlük yazıları, kısaca Fatima'nın onayını alacak her şeyi feda etmeye ne kadar istekli olduklarını anlamaları onları çok üzer. Ancak bu fedakarlıklardan birinin asla onarılamayacak bir trajediye yol açar.

Thirteen Reasons Why and The Secret History, tarzında yazılan ALL OF THIS IS TRUE bir manipülasyon, aldatmaca ve bunların sonuçlarının hikayesidir.



“Yenileyici ve iştah açıcı biçimde biçimlendirilmiş ve gerçekten kitabı bırakmak çok zor. Yazarların etik sorumluluklarını inceler ve şöhretlere olan hayranlık, fandomluk ve bunların sınırları hakkında bir takım soruları gündeme getirir. Bu kitap, güçlü konumundaki insanların manipülatif ve sömürücü davranışlarını düzenli olarak öğrenirken, ortaya çıkıyor: Kitap hakkında bu kadar bilgi yeterlidir, okuyuculara kitap hakkında düşünmeye yetecek kadar bilgi verir. Dedikoducu Kız'ın ayrıcalık seviyelerine sahip, bu karekterlere ısınması zor ama kitapta sozu edilen toksik dostluklar ve kitapta söz edilen, büyük zararlar verdikten sonra geri dönüş olasılıklarını zamanında araştırılması, kesin olarak yine bir dizi soru ortaya çıkaracak.
Bu son derece orijinal bir eser ve 13 yaşındaki okuyucular tarafından zevk olacaktır-Kim Gruschow, Children’s Book Buyer at Readings (Australia)

Güçlü anlatımı ve duygusal teması ile hafızalarda iz bırakmış ile The Language of Flowers, Orphan Train, ve  The Light Between Oceans adlı eserleriyle, eleştirmenlerce beğenilen ünlü çocuk kitapları yazarı Jean E. Pendziwol'un  yetişkinlere yönelik yazdığı bu ilk romanı, onyıllardır açığa çıkmayan bir sır ile aile, kimlik ve sanatı içeren etkileyici bir  hikaye üzerine kurgulu.

Elizabeth'in zihni hala keskin ama  gözleri artık yeterince iyi görmüyordu. Artık ne sevdiği kitaplarına  vakit ayırabiliyor ne de ruhunu canlandıran o tablolara bakabiliyordu.  İçindeki boşluğu müzik ve ailesinden kalan anılarla dolduruyordu,  özellikle de sevgili ikiz kız kardeşi Emily'nin hayali ile. Bir kazada kaybettiği babasınının günlüklerini keşfettikten sonra artık geçmişi tümüyle onunla olacak, yakasını bir daha hiç bırakmayacaktı.

Kaldığı yaşlı bakım evinde, Morgan adlı toplum hizmeti görevini yapan suç mağduru gencin yardımıyla, Elizabeth babasının günlüklerini inceleme fırsatı elde eder. Bu günlükler iki kadını bir araya getiren, zaman içindeki bir yolculuğun başlangıcı olacaktır. Günlüğü her okuyuşunda,  alışılmadık arkadaşlıkları onları kendi dünyalarından çok uzaktaki bir dünyaya derinden çekecek-Elizabeth'in babasının yetmiş yıl önce bulduğu ve ailesini yetiştirdiği  Superior Gölü üzerindeki Porphyry Adası'ndaki deniz fenerine çekecektir.

Günlüğün küflü sayfalarındaki kelimeler canlandıkça, Elizabeth ve Morgan kaderlerinin daha önce hiç  hayal bile edemedikleri bir şekilde, dışlanmış o adaya bağlı olduğunun farkına varmaya başlayacak. Morgan'ın  bağlantısının keşfi, kendi aile sırlarının üzerine ışık tutarken, günlüğün solmaya yüz tutmuş sayfaları Elizabeth'in bildiği ve  geçmişin sırlarını ışığa kavuşturacağını düşündüğü her şeyin temelini sarsacak.

BLURBS AND REVIEWS:

I’m pleased to be sending the following blurbs and reviews for Virginia Boecker’s AN ASSASSIN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND TREASON (Little, Brown BFYR, October 2018. Brazil: V&R. Spanish (world): Hidra.) 

“An engrossing story of love and intrigue, with a rich atmosphere that takes you back in time and a cast of historical characters that stay with you long after you've finished. I couldn't put it down!” 
―Alexis Bass, author of Love and Other Theories 

“In addition to revolving around Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, it has the spirit and fun of A Knight's Tale and a charm all its own. It instantly found a place on my all time favorites shelf.” 
―Rachel Strolle, Anderson's Bookshop Naperville 

“[Virginia Boecker] paints a thrilling picture of Tudor England with all the intrigue, romance, and danger a lover of historical fiction could want.”
 Sharon Biggs Waller, author of The Forbidden Orchid and A Mad, Wicked Folly
“Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason is an engrossing story of love and intrigue, with a rich atmosphere that takes you back in time and a cast of historical characters that stay with you long after you've finished. I couldn't put it down!”―Alexis Bass, author of Love and Other Theories

PW says this about Kit Frick’s forthcoming SEE ALL THE STARS (Margaret K. McElderry Books, August 2018.  World English. French: Bayard.): “Taut and riveting, Frick’s psychological thriller will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”

Full Review: At 16, Ellory May thought she had everything figured out. Her squad—Ret, Bex, and Jenni—spent an almost perfect summer together, and things got even better after Ellory met Matthias and the two began to fall in love. Now 18, Ellory is returning to school for the first time after an incident the previous spring. Though no one outwardly blames Ellory for what happened, she has become a social outcast, friendless and brokenhearted. Debut novelist Frick divides her narrative into “then” and “now” chapters, slowly weaving together a story that highlights the sometimes claustrophobic nature of teen friendships. Frick nails Ret’s mean-girl manipulation of her circle of best buddies: “Ret Johnston was the sun. Hot, bright, at the center of our universe. That we revolved around her was simply a fact.” Equally impressive is how Frick slowly peels away the story’s truths, leaving the reader to question everything, including Ellory’s mental health. Taut and riveting, Frick’s psychological thriller will keep readers on the edge of their seats.—Publishers Weekly 


Adele Griffin’s latest contemporary YA novel TELL ME NO LIES (Algonquin) published on June 12th to the following reviews:

“In a story containing as many secrets as main characters, Griffin delivers a universal message about openness and honesty.”—Publishers Weekly

“A contemplatively paced coming-of-age story . . . while fans of Stranger Things are likely to appreciate the 1980s cultural references, themes of being true to yourself and honest with your friends are timeless.”—Booklist

“What’s most refreshing about Tell Me No Lies is its 80s Philly setting. Missing from the narrative are social media snafus; instead, three teens long to create genuine personal relationships . . .  Soon hell breaks loose when secrets are kept and lies are told. This is not the 80's of John Hughes movies.”
—W Magazine

Atheneum published Kallie George’s picture book THE DOLL HOSPITAL earlier this month to positive reviews:

“It's not only the patients, but the doctor and nurses who are dolls, too.... Collage and digital illustrations have a charming retro look with a palette that relies on red, green, yellow, and brown... the text is cumulative in a satisfying way... the instinct to care for others is important to nurture.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Dr. Pegs, with red pigtails and wide brown eyes, is planning a slow day at the doll hospital, organizing buttons. But that’s before the doorbell rings—one, two, three, four times.... The illustrations, made of cut paper, cloth, stuffing, ink, and digital techniques, give a three-dimensional look to the artwork and provide a symmetry of shape and color, primarily reds, greens, buffs, and browns. If a hospital visit can be fun, it’s this one.”—Booklist

“Written in a cumulative manner with bright, colorful digital illustrations rendered in a simple color palette, this is a sweet story that will capture the hearts of little ones with their own favorite dolls.”

William Morrow, February 2019. World English.


Skinnerlar birbirine sımsıkı bağlı ancak yetişkinlerin aile sorumluluklarını yerine getirmediği bir aile tipidir. Joe, genç yaşta  boşandıktan sonra özgürlüğüne kavuşmuş  30 yaşındaki ve ailenin en sevileni, tek oğuldur. Bir gece içtikten sonra beklenmedik bir şekilde ölürken, üç kızkardeşi ve annesinin, ailenin yeni öyküsünü bir araya getirmek için toplanması gerekir: Fiona hala şişman en küçük kız kardeşleri midir? Mug hala her şekilde mükemmel mi? Renee hala ikonoklastik mi? Bunların hepsini bir arada tutan kişi olmadan bu yeni üçgenlemede hala var olabilirler mi? 

Joe'nun birkaç şeyi geride bıraktığını keşfettiklerinde önemli şeyler karmaşıklaşıyor: büyük bir emlak ve evlenmeyi amaçlayan genç bir kız arkadaş. Skinnerlar, bu yabancıyı nasıl  değerlendireceklerine karar vermeli ve süreç içinde gerçekte ne tür bir aile olduklarını keşfetmelidir.
