Tantalizing Future YA Releases!

Tantalizing Future YA Releases is a weekly feature where I showcase up andcoming YA covers. In addition, 'The Blast from the Past' section focuses on previously released books that still deserve a voice after a few years of silence. If you are inspired by this meme, giving credit will be greatly appreciated.

All titles are linked to GoodReads, if summaries cannot be found I will use Amazon or the publisher's website. Also, please note that covers may not be final. If changes occur I will replace the covers with the new versions.

  • Leap by Jodi Lundgren (Second Story Press, 3/1/11)
  • She Said/She Saw by Norah McClintock (Orca Book Publishers, 3/1/11)
  • Purple Haze by Sherry Shahan (Running Press Kids, 3/22/11)
  • Favorite by Karen McQuestion (AmazonEncore, 4/1/11)
  • The Eternal Sea (Everlasting, #2) by Angie Frazier (Scholastic Press, 6/1/11)
  • Forgiven (Faithful, #2) by Janet Fox (Speak, 6/2/11)
*Blast From The Past*
The Orange Houses by Paul Griffin
Reading Level: Young Adult
Release Date: June 11, 2009
Publisher: Dial
Pages: 160

Summary: Meet Tamika Sykes—Mik to her friends (if she had any). She’s hearing impaired and way too smart for her West Bronx high school. She copes by reading lips and selling homework answers, and looks forward to the time each day when she can be alone in her room drawing. She’s a tough girl who never gets close to anyone, until she meets Fatima, a teenage refugee who sells newspapers on Mik’s block. Both Mik and Fatima unite in their efforts to befriend Jimmi, a homeless vet who is shunned by the rest of the community. The events that follow when these three outcasts converge will break open their close-knit community and change the lives of those living in the Orange Houses in explosive and unexpected ways.
