Nimona – Noelle Stevenson

The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it “a deadpan epic.”

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this subversive, irreverent epic. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout.

An Ember in the Ashes – Sabaa Tahir

“[An Ember in the Ashes] thrusts its readers into a world marred by violence and oppression, yet does so with simple prose that can offer moments of loveliness in its clarity. This complexity makes Ember a worthy novel—and one as brave as its characters.” – The New York Times Book Review

 

mosquitoland coverMosquitoland – David Arnold

“Arnold proves his worth as a top-notch storyteller on his first literary go-round, which is reminiscent of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off if done by John Hughes with Jack Kerouac. . . Mosquitoland stings in all the right places, which is why it will no doubt be many teenagers’ new favorite book and win over the crustiest old-timer, too.” – USA Today
