Sizlerle The Jill grinberg Literary Management- 8 Mayıs 2015 tarihli bültenini paylaşmaktan memnunum.

 Marissa Meyer'in en yeni romanı(tek roman)HEARTLESS'ın müsveddelerinin 15 Mayıs'dan sonra hazır olacağını öğrendik. Sizlere önceki tanıtımlarda söz ettiğim gibi HEARTLESS, ALICE'ın HARIKALAR DIYARINDAKI MACERALARINI konu alan en yeni romanı. 


b.t. gottfred'in FOREVER FOR A YEAR Publishers Weekly'den yıldızlı bir yorum aldı ve  PW Children's Bookshelf'de ondan söz edilmesine ayrıca çok sevinçliyiz.

Carolina Fisher is a newly minted high-school freshman with big hopes for the year ahead. Trevor Santos is a jaded transfer student from California, who isn’t interested in anything his new Illinois school has to offer—until he meets Carolina. Writing in the teenagers’ alternating perspectives, debut author Gottfred captures the starry-eyed exhilaration of first love (and nervous first explorations of sex) with tenderness and humor. Wearing her heart and her insecurities on her sleeve, Carolina is exuberant in her joy about Trevor (“I said I liked a boy to his face. And he said he liked me. What did this mean? I must know what this means or I will die”), while Trevor’s self-delusion that he isn’t falling hard for Carolina and his reflections on the looming family problems they both face are just as honest and realistic. In short, Gottfred’s characters actually sound, think, and act like real people, not the polished, best versions of themselves. Readers will need hearts of steel not to fall for this love story and its two storytellers. Ages 14–up. Agent: Jill Grinberg, Jill Grinberg Literary Management. (July)

INTO THE DANGEROUS WORLD by Julie Chibbaro, çizimleri JM Superville-Sovak

Kirkus'dan  mükemmel bir eleştiri aldı:

 Aurora, raised in a rural commune, finds her notions of art challenged by her introduction to the New York City graffiti-art scene in the 1980s.

Aurora is struggling to define her artistic identity, a process complicated by her father’s suicide by house fire, an act that nearly killed the entire family. The tragedy forces Aurora, her sister, and their mother into New York City. Caught in the whirlwind of public assistance and public school, and besieged by the city’s commercialized chaos, Aurora retreats into her sketchbooks to explore her father’s complicated legacy. Her drawings of her father on fire and her imagined conversations with him, in which he offers opinions on her new life, powerfully complement the prose, the sketchlike quality of the art emulating an artist’s personal sketchbook. In art class, Aurora meets Trey, a graffiti artist with whom she forms a contentiously competitive bond that is also laced with admiration and attraction—a relationship not unlike Aurora’s feelings about graffiti, which she finds both alluring and perilous. Aurora acknowledges the graffiti artists’ talents, as well as the issues of danger and vandalism that accompany the medium. With a nod to the best parts of her father’s unconventional spirit, Aurora eventually integrates her own unorthodox styles into her graffiti while also exploring more traditional gallery spaces as potential avenues for her future works.

A thought-provoking, beautiful exploration of the artistic process.


İlk yazar, Katelyn Detweiler,  IMMACULATE adlı eserine ikinci yıldızlı yorum School Library Journal'dan geldi.  IMMACULATE daha önce Kirkus'dan bir yorum almıştım. Eser 26 Mayıs 2015'de yayınlanacak.

DETWEILER, Katelyn. Immaculate. 464p. Viking. May 2015. 

Gr 9 Up–Seventeen-year-old Mina is in a serious but not sexually active relationship with her popular boyfriend Nate. After a strange encounter with a mysterious woman, Mina discovers she is pregnant. Maintaining that she’s a virgin and the baby’s conception is a miracle, Mina cannot explain her divine situation. Her incredible story earns judgement and exclusion from family and friends and eventually lands her in the center of a terrible media storm. Obsessed with protecting her child, Mina maintains her faith in its miraculous nature. The dynamic characters move the action forward, relatable in their various reactions to Mina’s story. The unusual premise compels readers to want to know how it all ends, but the drama feels tidied up quickly, and the ending is anticlimactic. More questions than answers are provided about the nature of the pregnancy and the fate of the child, but the narrative is inclusive of multiple types of  explanations; Mina explores stories of miraculous conceptions in various religions, and her message is more about faith in general than a specific set of beliefs. VERDICT A unique page-turner mixing humor and heart, this is a thought-provoking take on miracles and motherhood.–Whitney LeBlanc, Staten Island Academy, NY (School Library Journal)

There's nothing like being a pregnant virgin to ruin your senior year of high school. After a typical shift at the pizza parlor, "nerdy, chronic overachiever" Mina, trying to get free of Iris, a strange, old customer who seems to know a lot about her, answers a vague proposal with a frustrated "yes"—and now Mina's pregnant. And still a virgin. Her father doesn't believe her; "calm and predictable" boyfriend Nate is hurt and knows it's not his child; best friend Izzy is certain she's being lied to. But along with her mother and friend Hannah, busboy Jesse (who also met Iris) joins Mina's supportive posse—Mina/Jesse, Mary/Joseph, get it? In addition to the obvious Biblical parallels, Mina's story is also that of every misunderstood teen—bullies harass, an embarrassing website pops up. But calls to "Virgin Mina" to denounce her claim grow stronger, and Mina becomes the focus of adult anger and passion. Eventually forced to take protective action for herself and her unborn child, Mina depends on family and friends. The pace occasionally slows as Mina explores religion, spirituality, and impending motherhood, but overall, Detweiler's smart writing moves quickly and entertains, particularly with Mina's appealingly bright voice. Even as the story probes its mystical underpinnings, the focus remains firmly on Mina right through to the end. Detweiler's ambitious debut takes an intriguing premise and executes it well. (Fiction. 14-18) --Kirkus


Jenn Marie Thorne'in ilk romanı, THE WRONG SIDE OF RIGHT, 17 Martta yayınlandığı günden bu yazan tam dördüncü önemli yorumunu aldı. Ayrıca eser ikinci baskısı yapıldı. Esere yapılan aşağıdaki yorumları okuyunuz!

Kate Quinn never knew her father. After her mother dies in a car accident, Kate moves from Los Angeles to live with the only relatives she knows—her aunt and uncle in South Carolina. Her quiet life there is suddenly shattered when she, and the rest of the world, learn that Kate is the biological daughter of a presidential candidate, Senator Cooper. Kate all of a sudden has a role to play in a high-stakes political contest, where one false move could cost her father his chance at the presidency. If that weren’t enough, there are a couple more complications. First, the current president has a rebellious (and attractive) teen son who has a thing for Kate. And second, as part of the campaign agenda, Kate needs to express viewpoints that are definitely not her own. Thorne’s debut novel is both intelligent and heartfelt, as Kate finds unexpected love as well as unimagined courage. Readers will also get an education in the dark side of American politics, where lawmakers buy votes with careless promises to the upper class, heedless of damage to less fortunate American families. Like Danny in Trent Reedy’s Divided We Fall (2014), Kate faces timely conflicts that could affect thousands of people. Not only does Thorne give readers a moving coming-of-age story, but cast a critical eye on the state of American politics.Booklist *Starred Review*

Gr 9 Up–After her mother passed away in a sudden accident, 16-year-old Kate Quinn is left parentless and forced to move cross-country from Los Angeles to South Carolina to live with her uncle. Nearly a year later, while still in a haze of grief, she comes home to a yard full of reporters and the Republican candidate for president sitting in her living room—claiming to be her father. From that moment, she quickly finds herself in the national spotlight, living with a family that she has just met, and falling for a boy whom she can’t entirely trust. When she realizes that she may be campaigning for someone who does not share her beliefs, she must figure out how to stay true to herself while preserving her new family and life.Thorne’s debut novel is a smart and well-executed story that feels fresh and familiar. It is easy to like strong, intelligent Kate throughout, and the supporting cast of characters are fleshed out well. The relationship between the protagonist and the adults in her life are realistically complicated. Fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han will appreciate this well-crafted story about love and family —School Library Journal


A 16-year-old girl whose mother has just recently died learns that she is the daughter of the Republican candidate for president of the United States.

Kate’s formerly hidden parentage comes to light when a reporter reveals that she is the daughter of Sen. Mark Cooper of Massachusetts, who’s leading in the polls against the incumbent, a Democrat. Kate doesn’t know much about politics, although she grew up in East Los Angeles, where her mother ran a food bank, and her best friends’ parents are undocumented immigrants. She sees early on that Sen. Cooper takes a hard line on immigration but chooses not to learn what that means. In the meantime, she finds that her new family is quite wonderful. Even Mrs. Cooper accepts her as their daughter, and she becomes close to her new siblings, 8-year-old twins Gabe and Gracie. When Kate learns what “hard line” means, though, she introduces the Coopers to her undocumented friends to expose them to the reality of the issue. But will her friends remain safe? Meanwhile, Andy, the president’s son, starts a relationship with Kate. But is he honest about his feelings? Thorne appears to have researched the inner workings of political campaigns well and presents a believable portrait of the burdens they place on families. Kate’s reactions to her new family ring true as well.

Absorbing and timely. (Fiction. 12-18) -- Kirkus

      Jon Skovron’un MAN MADE BOY adlı eserinin devamı niteliğinde yakında çıkacak THIS BROKEN WONDROUS WORLD'une ,Kirkus'dan yorum yapıldı:  

Advanced technology, experimental science, inspired revolution in the name of unity: sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. In the time since Boy's own technological catastrophe nearly outed his monster clan in Man Made Boy (2013), he has left his gritty, familiar home in Manhattan to study at university in Geneva. He's living on the estate of Dr. Frankenstein, whose descendants consider Boy family, particularly "cousin" and fellow freshman Henri. Boy hasn't quite settled in when a disappearing dwarf delivers a foreboding message, a carnivorous mermaid tries to eat him, and girlfriend Sophie Jekyll/Claire Hyde arrives with news that her brother Robert Jekyll is up to no good. Boy returns with Henri and Sophie/Claire to New York, where they learn that Robert has joined forces with Dr. Moreau. Cue: disturbing, warped plans of global domination. Characters from the first book join appealing newcomers, but with the high stakes of a monster revolution, the demises of some favorites are inevitable. There is still a fair amount of red-blooded monster boy behavior, but it isn't all sex, booze, and bloody battles. Affection, sorrow, guilt, anger, and particularly integrity are addressed; paraphrasing Claire, we're all capable of terrible things, but it's integrity that separates those who do and don't succumb. An enjoyably action-laden, sometimes bloody, globe-trotting lesson in what it means to be monster, to be man, and to be careful when serving dryads alcohol. (Science fiction. 12 & up) --Kirkus

Wall Street Journal, May 1, 2015
“Peppered with Mr. Smith’s distinctive, pointy-edged illustrations, this unusual, ultimately exultant story for 9- to 13-year-olds is tinged with the supernatural and heartbreaking at its core.”
Publishers Weekly, May 7, 2015: Hot Off the Presses Feature

New Cover Alert!

The Great Pet Escape by Victoria Jamieson is an adorable, antic dash through Daisy P. Flugelhorn Elementary School. The class pets want OUT…and GW (short for George Washington), the deceptively cute hamster in the second-grade classroom, is just the guy to lead the way. But when he finally escapes and goes to find his former partners in crime, Barry and Biter, he finds that they actually LIKE being class pets. Impossible!

Just as GW gets Barry and Biter to agree to leave with him, a mouse named Harriet and her many mouse minions get in their way. What follows is class-pet chaos guaranteed to make readers giggle…and maybe look at their class pets a little differently in the future.

VICTORIA JAMIESON is the author and illustrator of several books for children, including the New York Times-bestseller Roller Girl. She worked as a children's book designer before becoming a full-time illustrator. She has also worked as a portrait artist aboard a cruise ship and has lived in Australia, Italy, and Canada.

“The latest from the Caldecott Medalist is the underdog story of a little green car in the desert, and all the various vehicular characters he encounters.”

THE TROUBLE IN ME by Jack Gantos
Kirkus, ALA/BEA issue
“Jack's narrative has a Wimpy Kid tone and appeal as, looking back, he's well-aware of his own youthful fecklessness and almost eager to point out where he went wrong. But, not very surprisingly for readers who have been following his checkered career, he turns out to be a miserable failure at real evil.”
