THIS IS TEEN
A discussion of the hottest topics in Teen lit with Brenna Yovanoff and Emily Hainsworth
Monday, November 12 @ 6:00 p.m.
Franny Gustafson, Bookworm Children’s Book Specialist, hosts Brenna Yovanoff and Emily Hainsworth for an evening of teen lit. Each author will have the opportunity to discuss their book and discuss what makes a great teen book, what they think are the hottest topics/books in YA right now, what books inspired them when they were teens, why some YA books are controversial (are some books TOO sexy? TOO violent?) etc.
BRENNA YOVANOFF's debut novel, "The Replacement," was an instant New York Times bestseller. She has an MFA in creative writing from Colorado State University and currently lives in Denver. Visit her website at http://brennayovanoff.com/.
The Space Between
Daphne is the half-demon, half-fallen angel daughter of Lucifer and Lilith. Life for her is an endless expanse of time, until her brother Obie is kidnapped—and Daphne realizes she may be partially responsible.
Determined to find him, Daphne travels from her home in Pandemonium to the vast streets of Earth, where everything is colder and more terrifying. With the help of the human boy she believes was the last person to see her brother alive, Daphne glimpses into his dreams, discovering clues to Obie’s whereabouts. As she delves deeper into her demonic powers, she must navigate the jealousies and alliances of the violent archangels who stand in her way.
EMILY HAINSWORTH was raised in upstate New York and currently resides in Denver, CO, with her husband, cat, and standard poodle. Through to You is her first novel. Visit her website at http://www.emilyhainsworth.com/
Through to You
Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. Viv was the last good thing in his life: helping him rebuild his identity after a career-ending football injury, picking up the pieces when his home life shattered, and healing his pain long after the meds wore off. And now, he’d give anything for one more glimpse of her. But when Cam makes a visit to the site of Viv’s deadly car accident, he sees some kind of apparition. And it isn’t Viv.
The apparition’s name is Nina, and she’s not a ghost. She’s a girl from a parallel world, and in this world, Viv is still alive. Cam can’t believe his wildest dreams have come true. All he can focus on is getting his girlfriend back, no matter the cost. But things are different in this other world: Viv and Cam have both made very different choices, things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv isn’t the same girl he remembers. Nina is keeping some dangerous secrets, too, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day. As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become and the part Nina played in his parallel story, he’s forced to choose—stay with Viv or let her go—before the window closes between them once and for all.
