This summer sees the emergence of two new names in YA fiction - both friends, and both destined to become firm fan favorites!

Rory Powers  Rebecca Kim Wells

Rory Power's WILDER GIRLS is a mind-bending novel about three best friends living in quarantine at their island boarding school, and the lengths they go to uncover the truth of their confinement when one disappears. This fresh, new debut has been called a feminist Lord of the Flies unlike anything you've read before!

"Celebrates the resilience of girls and the earthshaking power of their friendships. An eerie, unforgettable triumph." --Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn

In Rebecca Kim Wells' SHATTER THE SKY, Maren dreams only of sharing a quiet life with her girlfriend Kaia—until the day Kaia is abducted by the Aurati, prophetic agents of the emperor, and forced to join their ranks. Desperate to save her, Maren hatches a plan to steal one of the emperor’s coveted dragons and storm the Aurati stronghold. This stunning fantasy debut is perfect for fans of Margaret Rogerson, Rae Carson, and Rachel Hartman.

"An extremely welcome addition to YA’s queer fantasy canon." Dahlia Adler, author of Under the Lights
