Congrats to Jennifer DiGiovanni for her second release of 2016, her sophomore novel:My Junior Year of Loathing! We’re so thrilled for Jen and her School Dayz series! Check it out on Amazon today!!
Here’s a teaser: Junior year is supposed to be tough. Exams, term papers, homework, college tours, and participation in extra-curricular activities can all add up to non-stop stress. But Melinda Banner has goals to achieve and dreams to make real. This year, she’ll be unstoppable.
While trying to escape the stress of it all, Melinda meets Connor. After a few more run-ins around town, the two settle into an uneasy friendship, if you can even call it that.
But Connor’s closed and mysterious. Whenever Melinda asks too many questions, he suddenly disappears. When they’re together, she’s torn between wanting him to open up and running away as fast as she can. Can you like someone and loathe them at the same time? Is he even worth the emotional tug on her heartstrings or distraction from all things Junior year?

POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY is officially in the US today, and it’s already sold to China (Grand China) and Czech Republic (Albatros)! To celebrate, Jennie will be on her local ABC News Station for a lunchtime chat so today isn’t just her book debut, but it’s her television debut as well!
POPPY MAYBERRY, THE MONDAY: What if your teacher could read your mind just because she was born on a Thursday? Or the kid next to you in class could turn back the clock just because he was a Wednesday? In the quirky town of Nova, all of this is normal. Poppy Mayberry, an almost-11-year-old Monday, should be able to pass notes in class or brush her dog, Pickle, without lifting a finger. Poppy’s Monday telekinesis ability has some kinks and that plate of spaghetti she’s passing may just end up on someone’s head. If that’s not hard enough, practically-perfect Ellie Preston is out to get her and Principal Wible wants to send Poppy to remedial summer school to work on her powers! It’s enough to make a girl want to disappear. If only she were a Friday.

We are so thrilled that GEMINI by Sonya Mukherjee is in the world today! Join us in wishing her a Happy Book Birthday. Celebrate by picking up a copy of this beautiful book!
In a powerful and daring debut novel, Sonya Mukherjee shares the story of sisters Clara and Hailey, conjoined twins who are learning what it means to be truly extraordinary.
Seventeen-year-old conjoined twins Clara and Hailey have lived in the same small town their entire lives—no one stares at them anymore. But there are cracks in their quiet existence, and they’re slowly becoming more apparent. Clara and Hailey are at a crossroads. Clara wants to stay close to home, avoid all attention, and study the night sky. Hailey wants to travel the world, learn from great artists, and dance with mysterious boys. As high school graduation approaches, each twin must untangle her dreams from her sister’s, and figure out what it means to be her own person.
Told in alternating perspectives, this unconventional coming-of-age tale shows how dreams can break your heart—but the love between sisters can mend it.
You are probably already drooling for GEMINI by Sonya Mukherjee (who isn’t?) and you probably know that it releases into the wild in SIX SHORT DAYS! But did you know GEMINI is already an Amazon #1 New Release? It is! And we are so thrilled for Sonya. Make sure you pre-order this powerful debut novel about conjoined twins Clara and Hailey.
