I know I talked up the great older titles in my email but it really is a solid list of young adult.
John Flannagan has his latest Brotherband book out, Slaves of Socorro. It looks just as exciting as the first two in the series. And if you liked Loki's Wolves by K.L. Armstrong then you're going to LOVE Odin's Ravens. The young descendents of Thor and Loki are at it again, trying to save the world and cope with God-like powers.
Torn Away by Jennifer Brown is sad, I'm not going to lie to you, Jersey Cameron loses her entire family when a tornado destroys her hometown. However, it's a book about love and family and forgiveness and I highly recommend it.
And if you're in the mood for a modern spin on Romeo and Juliet, take a look at Una LaMarche's Like No Other. It's the story of Devorah, a young Hasidic girl and Jax, a Caribbean boy from Brooklyn who fall in love and struggle with family, culture and strict rules in order to be together.
And while there aren't a ton of graphic novels this month, the few here are great. A little bit of history, a little bit of mystery and dragons!
