A smart and sexy tale of an outlaw theater troupe forced to escape into the realm of Faerie when the mortal world becomes too dangerous
from Penny Blubaugh, author of Serendipity Market, one of Kirkus Reviews' Best YA Books of 2009

Three years ago, Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe. With time, this motley band of mortals and fey, puppeteers and actors, becomes the loving family Persia never had, and soon Persia not only discovers a passion for theater but also falls in love with one of the other Outlaws. Life could not be more perfect.

Until an enemy makes an unfair accusation against the group and forces them to flee their world and hide in the neighboring realm of Faerie. But in Faerie, all is not flowers and rainbows. With bloodthirsty trolls, a hostile monarchy, and a dangerous code of magic, the fey world is far from the safe haven the Outlaws had hoped for....

Following up her critically acclaimed Serendipity Market, Penny Blubaugh has created a beautiful and mysterious world where anything can happen—especially what you least expect.

A setting so richly rendered you can smell the soil, a first love so beautifully drawn it feels like your own, and a look at undocumented workers so affecting, Yvonne Prinz has created a To Kill a Mockingbird for our times.
What happens when a city girl is transplanted onto a ramshackle organic farm in the middle of nowhere? Everything.

Sixteen-year-old Roar has been yanked from her city life and suddenly she’s a farm girl, albeit a reluctant one, selling figs at the farmers' market and developing her photographs in a rickety shed. And then she witnesses a crime that will throw the whole community into an uproar. Caught among the lure of a troublemaking friend, her love for a brooding boy, and her complicated feelings about her father’s human rights crusade, Roar is going to have to tackle it all. And with a camera around her neck, she’s capturing it all, too.

Yvonne Prinz and her novel The Vinyl Princess have ignited the teen blogosphere and entertainment media. Once again, she’s taken the pulse of culture and emerged with a book that is timely, quirky, and unforgettable.

“This book gets it all exactly right—friendships, envy, and the fact that you can never truly know another person.”—Sara Zarr, National Book Award Finalist for Story of a Girl

I guess you could say that Brooke Dempsey and I are rivals. Why, then, should somebody like her care enough to hate somebody like me? It’s a long story.”

On the surface, Brooke Dempsey and Kathryn Pease seem like complete opposites. But despite their differences, they were once best friends…until the Homecoming night when Brooke ruthlessly turned on Kathryn in front of everyone.

Now, as Brooke and Kathryn prepare to face off in an all-important music competition, they must confront the events that destroyed their friendship a year earlier.

Sara Bennett Wealer has captured all of the highs and lows of best friendship and bitter rivalry in her stunning debut novel, which New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle praised as “awesome, awesome, and more awesome.

You can't possibly tell me that these books are not interesting! Blood and Flowers, other than having one of the prettiest covers of 2010, is not your ordinary Faerie story. Instead of fleeing from the Faerie world they flee INTO Faerie world! I want to know Miss. Blubaugh's spin on the Faerie world.

In All You Get is Me what caught my attention is this line: "
A setting so richly rendered you can smell the soil, a first love so beautifully drawn it feels like your own..."
h And in Rivals the best friends turned enemies has been a recurring side show, but it would be interesting for it to actually become our main focus.

Happy Reading,

  2. I'm really looking forward to so many books and this make the list as well. I didn't know about Rival. Sounds so good.
