We hate to brag, but our book game this September is STRONG. BEHOLD! Our wonderful September publications!
Two of our titles publishing this month are all about standing up for what you believe in. The first, Moxie, publishes 21st Sep 2017 though it’s already been out in WH Smiths with being picked for Zoella Book Club 2017. The buzz around this book has been immense. And that’s because people want a character like Vivian. For anyone who has had to deal with everyday sexism, THIS is the page-turning read for you. A young girl starts a feminist revolution in her high school after growing increasingly frustated at the way her female classmates are treated. Inspiring, relevant and shocking – you will not be able to stop thinking about this book long after you read it.
The second book we have publishing this month is This Book Will (Help You) Change The World (21st Sep 2017), the powerhouse guide to politics and activism. If you want to protest injustice and campaign for what you believe is right then this book is for you. Record numbers of people voted in the snap election in June and record numbers of those people were the young. We always hear the words ‘you’re vote matters’ and ‘your voice should be heard’ but more often that not it’s difficult to know and understand what you’re voting for. This is a book that will change your world and help you better understand how you can use your voice and start your own campaigns for the things you strongly believe in.
These are the books that will blow your mind and then some
The Language of Thorns (26th Sep 2017) is the highly anticipated and deliciously atmospheric fairy tale collection from no. 1 New York Times bestselling author, Leigh Bardugo. Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid’s voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy’s bidding but only for a terrible price…
Invictus (21st Sep 2017) follows Farway McCarthy, a boy born outside of time. With nowhere to call home and nothing to anchor him to the present, he captains embarks on a dangerous mission to retrieve treasures from the past with his chaotic assortment of crew members aboard his time-travelling ship: Invictus. It’s charming and funny and unputdownable. AND it features a mischievous red panda.
I Am Traitor (7th Sep 2017) is the modern day War of the Worlds, the story of one teenager’s fight against an extra-terrestrial invasion. Amy Sullivan runs until she can’t run any more. Then, she is taken. To have a chance of saving herself, and her planet, Amy will have to put faith in those she fears the most. But what if it means becoming a traitor to everyone she has ever loved?
The Taste of Blue Light – (7th Sep 2017) – Louise O’Neill said this was The Bell Jar for this generation. And my god, was she right. You’ve no doubt heard a lot about this book (from us posting some very beautiful quote cards) but every good thing you’ve heard is true. This is a story of a girl’s desperation to uncover the truth of what really happened to her after that summer party, of why she cannot remember, of why she dreams in red. It’s a debut. And it’s stunning.
