Ready to Read: Aankomende Engelse boeken (YA en jeugd)

Een tijd terug kondigde Hebban aan dat ze een Ready to Read gids zouden maken. Een gids zoals de aanbiedingsfolders van uitgevers, maar dan met alle Engelse titels die de komende maanden zullen uitkomen. De gidsen lagen op de Dag van het Fantastische Boek en ik heb er eentje meegenomen. Er staan veel mooie nieuwe titels in: de mooiste wilde ik hier met jullie delen.

Lisa Williamson – Paper Avalanche
Stevie is the girl no-one notices – she doesn’t go to parties and she doesn’t have friends over. Besides, even if anyone tried to call on her they’d discover that no. 56 isn’t her house at all – it’s her decoy house, where she tells people to pick her up and drop her off so she can hide who she really is and where she really lives. And she certainly doesn’t have a best friend because having friends means opening up, telling the truth and there is one secret she can never risk revealing again. But when Tanvi turns up, Stevie starts to put other things before her secret first – like her love of singing, her crush on good looking and popular Luke, her budding friendship with the adorable Tanvi – and it’s only a matter of time before everything comes out and everything changes! Sometimes it’s better to be lonely because having friends in your life can mean revealing more secrets than you would ever want to.

Sally Green – The smoke thieves39127492
A princess, a traitor, a hunter and a thief. Four teenagers with the fate of the world in their hands. Four nations destined for conflict.

In Brigant, Princess Catherine prepares for a loveless political marriage arranged by her brutal and ambitious father. In Calidor, downtrodden servant March seeks revenge on the prince who betrayed his people. In Pitoria, feckless Edyon steals cheap baubles for cheaper thrills as he drifts from town to town. And in the barren northern territories, thirteen-year-old Tash is running for her life as she plays bait for the gruff demon hunter Gravell.

As alliances shift and shatter, and old certainties are overturned, our four heroes find their past lives transformed and their futures inextricably linked by the unpredictable tides of magic and war. Who will rise and who will fall? And who will claim the ultimate prize?

32302187Emily Arsenault – The leaf reader
Marnie Wells knows that she creeps people out. It’s not really her fault; her brother is always in trouble, and her grandmother, who’s been their guardian since Mom took off is…eccentric. So no one even bats an eye when Marnie finds an old book about reading tea leaves and starts telling fortunes. The ceremony and symbols are weirdly soothing, but she knows—and hopes everyone else does too—that none of it’s real.

Then basketball star Matt Cotrell asks for a reading. He’s been getting emails from someone claiming to be his best friend, Andrea Quinley, who disappeared and is presumed dead. And while they’d always denied they were romantically involved, a cloud of suspicion now hangs over Matt. But Marnie sees a kindred spirit: someone who, like her, is damaged by association.

Suddenly the readings seem real. And, despite the fact that they’re telling Marnie things about Matt that make him seem increasingly dangerous, she can’t shake her initial attraction to him. In fact, it’s getting stronger. And that could turn out to be deadly.

35793026 Jon Klassen – Square
This book is about Square. Square spends every day taking blocks from a pile below the ground to a pile above the ground. This book is also about Square’s friend Circle. Circle thinks Square is an artistic genius. But is he really? With the second story in a trilogy of tales about Triangle, Square, and Circle, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen nudge readers toward a more well-rounded way of looking at things. Understated and striking in its simplicity, this funny, thoughtful offering from two of today’s most talented picture-book creators emphasizes the importance of keeping your eyes — and your mind — open to wonder where others see only rubble and rocks.
