Join us for a panel discussion in our Debut Voices series with authors Victoria Lee (The Fever King), Naomi Milliner (Super Jake and the King of Chaos), Alexandra Villasante (The Grief Keeper) and Jodie Lynn Zdrok (Spectacle)!
In Victoria Lee's The Fever King, sixteen-year-old technopath and son of undocumented immigrants Noam Álvaro has the chance to infiltrate the system that oppresses refugees, but when he meets the cruel and beautiful son of the minister he plans to overthrow, he must decide who he's willing to trust, and how far he's willing to go to serve the greater good, in this debut hailed as one of the "best YA books of 2019" by Seventeen Magazine.
From Naomi Milliner comes Super Jake and the King of Chaos, a "charming and heartwarming" (Booklist) debut contemporary novel about 11-year-old aspiring magician Ethan, who discovers that heroes come in all sizes, and real magic can be found in the most unexpected places.
Alexandra Villasante presents her stunning first novel The Grief Keeper, a timely and heartfelt speculative narrative about healing, faith, and freedom featuring Marisol, an undocumented Salvadorean immigrant who joins an experimental study in order to save her sister, in what Publishers Weekly calls an "engrossing debut."
Spectacle is a YA murder mystery from debut author Jodie Lynn Zdrok in which a young reporter must use her supernatural visions to help track down a killer targeting the young women of Paris. Kirkus Reviews praised the book as "grisly, plot driven—and very creepy. Fans of historical thrillers that invoke the enduring spirit of Jack the Ripper will have fun."
