'Year of Mistaken Discoveries' by Eileen Cook is expected to release on February 25, 2014.

As first graders, Avery and Nora bonded over a special trait they shared—they were both adopted.  Years later, Avery is smart, popular, and on the cheerleading squad, while Nora spends her time on the fringes of school society, wearing black, reading esoteric poetry, and listening to obscure music.

Kevin Emerson’s newest book, 'Exile', coming from Katherine Tegan Books in April 2014!

Catherine Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional—she’s a student at the PopArts Academy at Mount Hope High, where rock legends Allegiance to North got their start. Summer knows that falling for the lead singer of her latest band is the least professional thing a manager can do. But Caleb Daniels isn’t an ordinary band boy—he’s a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. And he can do that thing. That thing when someone sings a song and it inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will.


Also from Kimberly Derting - 'The Taking' (The Taking Trilogy Bk #1) is coming Summer 2014!

'The Taking' will follow the story of a teen who wakes up after one lost night, to find that five years have passed and everything about the life she remembers has changed, even though she's still the same 16-year-old that she was when she vanished.

'The Body in the Woods' (Point Last Seen series) by April Henry will release in June 2014.  While this is a working title we are really looking forward to this new series!  

Alexis, Nick, and Ruby have very different backgrounds: Alexis has spent her life covering for her mom’s mental illness, Nick’s bravado hides his fear of not being good enough, and Ruby just wants to pursue her eccentric interests in a world that doesn’t understand her. When the three teens join Portland County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, they are teamed up to search for a autistic man lost in the woods. What they find instead is a dead body. In a friendship that will be forged in danger, fear and courage, the three team up to find the girl’s killer—before he can strike one of their own. 

This first book in April Henry’s Point Last Seen YA mystery series is full of riveting suspense, putting readers right in the middle of harrowing rescues and crime scene investigations.


Lisa Schroeder has been writing non-stop this year on a NEW series named Charmed Life, which will include 4 books. The first book 'Caitlin's Lucky Charm' and second book 'Mia's Golden Bird' are tentatively schedule for May 27th, 2014.

'The Bridge from Me to You' has been announced as the next YA book by Lisa Schroeder for a tentative publication date of July 29, 2014.

The Bridge from Me to You is a YA novel that is part verse, part prose. It is told alternately by a 17-year-old girl who is new to a small town with a family secret, and the star football player she meets who is having a tough year and has big dreams beyond the field.

In other excellent news, Marissa Meyer has a NEW book deal for a book named 'Heartless' which will release Fall 2015. 

A prequel to “Alice in Wonderland,” HEARTLESS will tell the tale of how a marquis’s teenage daughter became the infamous Queen of Hearts. It will be a story of whimsy and madness, passion and tragedy, ravens and writing desks.
