If you’re a Dessenite, then make sure that you reserve her soon-to-be-published (May, that is) book What Happened to Goodbye. Maclean and her father move to a new town after a horrid divorce, and she starts feeling at home (with the help of Dave, but with also a few lingering doubts and questions). Find out more about it on Sarah Dessen’s Ning (or Ning page: I don’t know what to call it!) at Sarah-Land.
Also, for Libba Bray fans, there’s Beauty Queens (cool cover). It’s not listed yet on the books page of her site (but I just stuck this link here anyway, for you to click on the big cow, and again, and again), but it will be available in late May/early June. A bunch of beauty queens end up stranded on a desert island (thanks to a plane crash). I like the product description (sourced from amazon.com): “Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.”
