Published: Image Comics - February 14th, 2017

Super violent and foul, this cosmic horror story is as sick and twisted as it gets. Polynesian, Mayan, and Lovecraftian mythos inspire this bloody mess through a fractured storyline. It is condensed madness, a blood-soaked nightmare, a triumph of grotesquerie. If you like dark stories in graphic form, or horror told from unusual angles, this is the book for you. – Sam

Published: Harper Teen - September 19th, 2017

Zac Brewer manages the delicate balance between making the point of view of a teenager with suicidal ideation empathetic and accessible without glorifying her emotional crisis in Madness. When Brooke is released from her recovery center after a suicide attempt, she struggles with reestablishing relationships and routines with family, friends, and schoolmates, even her BFF, Duckie. At first, new arrival Derek seems to be Brooke’s soulmate, the only person who understands what she’s feeling – but is their budding romance helpful or harmful, especially as it begins to isolate Brooke from other people she loves? Part Pretty in Pink and more than a little Heathers for teens in the 21st Century, the book also offers resources for any readers identifying with Brooke’s pain. – Maryelizabeth

This Is What Happened Cover Image
$25.95
ISBN: 9781616958619
Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: Soho Crime - January 30th, 2018

This Is What Happened is a mesmerizing psychological thriller with a strikingly clever plot. It begins when an ordinary young woman is recruited by MI5 to install a surveillance program onto a London company’s computer network. The riveting account of her attempt to do this is followed by a shocking plot twist that completely shape-shifts the story. More surprises follow. Mick Herron’s talent is on full display in this compulsively readable book, which includes spies, misogyny, Stockholm Syndrome, missing people, and sisterly love. For fans of psychological suspense and dark, literary thrillers. – Kim

Published: Delacorte Press - October 31st, 2017

Otherworld, set in the near future, asks the important question of what real-world sacrifices people would be willing to make when offered the chance to immerse themselves in a virtual reality that engages all their senses. The mysterious Company that constructed Otherworld promises players a chance to live their “best lives,” with “No laws. No limits. No judgements.” But what are the consequences of (virtually) living without limits, whether engaging in survival tactics, or indulging one’s secret desires? What may be one participant’s utopia may be another’s nightmare. Teens Simon and Kat, once the closest of friends in real life, now are only able to connect in Otherworld. When Simon is desperately seeking Kat, he discovers much more than they bargained for. – Maryelizabeth
