Akashic Books Pills and Starships
Lydia Millet

“One of the most acclaimed novelists of her generation.”—Los Angeles Times In this richly imagined dystopic future brought by global warming, mass human migrations are constant, water and food are scarce, new babies are illegal, and the disintegrating society is run by corporates who feed the people a steady diet of “pharma” to keep them happy. Usually, seventeen-year-old Nat doesn’t let it get her down too much: this, after all, is the life she’s used to. But now her family—her parents and her hacker brother Sam—have come to Hawaii for their parents’ Final Week. The few Americans who still live well also live long—so long that older adults bow out not by natural means but by buying death contracts. Counting down the days till her parents are scheduled to die, Nat keeps a record of everything her family does in the company-supplied diary that came in the hotel’s care package. When Sam rebels against the corporates his parents have hired to handle their last days, Nat has to choose a side. Lydia Millet is the author of seven novels as well as the story collection Love in Infant Monkeys—a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her first book for middle-grade readers, The Fires Beneath the Sea, was a Kirkus Best Book and Junior Library Guild selection.
Lydia Millet’s first YA novel explores a world devastated by global warming, and two teenagers determined to survive against all odds.

Auzou
Paris, France

Auzou has been publishing books for more than forty years, and with such experience we fully understand the demands of the children’s book market. Recognized among the first fifteen most successful publishing houses in France, our aim is to continue every day to imagine new titles and to look for the most creative illustrators. For two years now, Auzou has committed to a new challenge: to translate our bestsellers and to create new ones just for the North American market. Since 2012, we have been publishing in English and submitting to American readers our most beautiful stories and our most original and creative illustrations. Three major sections make our catalog: • Early childhood: Aimed at helping toddlers discover the world they live in while making them participate and interact. Whether it’s recognizing the smells of fruits with the First Book of Smells and Colors, or the sounds of animals with My Little Sound Books, toddlers will always learn better while playing! • Albums and novelty books: Dedicated to children mostly aged between six and twelve, when they start to discover the books on their own and sometimes to read by themselves. Our most representative character is the charismatic Wolf! Already hero of four titles in the Little Picture Books collection, this character brings the children along in his adventures. With them, you will discover the world or even be a singer for a moment! The Big Picture Books collection will please our older readers. Children will discover the worldwide stories of White Fang, Romeo and Juliet, or Cleopatra. • Educational books: A priority for Auzou. Discovering animals with My Book of Animals or understanding how science works with our bestseller My Little Handbook of Experiments is always interesting! Hope you’ll enjoy our titles!

Cinco Puntos Press The Black Butterfly
Shirley Reva Vernick

Our heroine Penny must spend her Christmas vacation alone in an ancient hotel, the Black Butterfly, at the coldest, bleakest edge of America—the coast of Maine. This “vacation” was the brainchild of Penny’s mother who had to be elsewhere, hunting ghosts. Weird, huh? Lucky for Penny she doesn’t believe in ghosts. Or love. Or “family.” Well, not so fast. Two ghosts appear— her friend Alipak, and her enemy, the Girl Ghost. Then there’s George, a real boy, the handsome son of Bubbles, who owns the Black Butterfly. Maybe he will become a boyfriend. Maybe he won’t. To her surprise, Penny has her sly wishes. And she has her troubles too. Especially when the Girl Ghost wants her dead. And Alipak disappears for good. Will George save her? Is this how Penny comes of age? Shirley Reva Vernick is rapidly becoming the new hot item in young adult fiction. Her first novel, The Blood Lie, won the Simon Wiesenthal Children’s Book Award, was silver medalist for the Sydney Taylor Book Award, and was an ALA 2012 Best Book for Young Adults. Her second novel, Remember Dippy— a feel-good adventure about a fourteen-year-old boy shepherding his older autistic cousin through his summer vacation—was released in spring 2013 to great reviews. This time around, Shirley wanted to let loose with a pageturning coming-of-age romance mixed with ghosts and adventure. Shirley is the creator of the much visited storytelling website storybee.org. She lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.
A spooky hotel, two ghosts (friend and enemy), a real boyfriend, and a forgiven mother. Not bad for winter vacation.

Cinco Puntos Press Pig Park
Claudia Guadalupe Martinez

It’s crazy! Seventeen-year-old Masi Burciaga hauls bricks to help build a giant pyramid in her neighborhood park. Her barrio is becoming more of a ghost town each day since the lard company moved away. Even her school closed down. Her family’s bakery and the other surviving businesses may soon follow. As a last resort, the neighborhood grown-ups enlist all the remaining able-bodied boys and girls to erect a giant pyramid in the middle of their park in hopes of luring tourists. Maybe their neighbors will come back. But something’s not right about the secretive entrepreneur behind this pyramid scheme. Why is he giving so much money? Is it just for free labor? And then there’s his son. The one with the softest of lips. Pig Park is a contemporary Faustian tale that forces us to look at the desperate lengths people will go to in the name of community—and maybe love. Claudia Guadalupe Martinez, author of the award-winning The Smell of Old Lady Perfume, has long been distressed about how the global economy is displacing workers and families. Claudia grew up in a tight family in Segundo Barrio in El Paso, Texas. She learned that letters form words from reading the Spanish subtitles of old westerns for her father. At age six, she already knew she wanted to create stories. Her father, who passed away when she was eleven, encouraged her to dream big and write many books. Claudia, her husband, and their daughter Penny live in Chicago, Illinois.

Cinco Puntos Press Little Chanclas
José Lozano

A bilingual tale about Little Lilly Lujan who loves her chanclas (flip-flops) going slippety-slappety and flippity-flop. In fact, Lilly refuses any footwear except her favorite pair of flip-flops. “Why does Lilly love her chanclas so much?” her family cries. Lilly doesn’t listen. That’s why her family nicknames her “Little Chanclas.” At baptisms, barbecues, quinceñeras, and picnics, you can hear Little Chanclas going slippety-slap and flippity-flop. Then one day Lilly dances a little too much at a fiesta, her chanclas come apart, a pit bull chews up the remains, and there is no more flip for her flop! Little Chanclas is inconsolable. Crisis ensues as she rejects shoe after shoe. But then a miracle happens. Lilly puts on a pair of soccer shoes. She’s a natural. She goes clicketyclick. She scores a goal. She’s a star! José Lozano is a rising star in the thriving Latino art scene in Los Angeles, California. Born in Los Angeles, his family moved to Juárez, Chihuahua, México, when he was a baby. Growing up on the border, he found many of the cultural touchstones that continue to influence his work today—bad Mexican cinema, lucha libre, fotonovelas, ghost stories, and comic books. Lozano prefers to work in a series, focusing on themes like Mexican wrestlers, paper dolls, and lotería. In fact, the Los Angeles Metro System commissioned his loteria card portraits of various light rail riders for the La Brea/ Expo Station. Lozano lives in Fullerton, California, and teaches elementary school in Anaheim.

Enchanted Lion Books The Day I Lost My Superpowers
Michaël Escoffier
Illustrated by Kris Di Giacomo

Childhood is a magical time when even the stuff of the day-to-day is exciting and the ordinary often seems extraordinary. Part of this magic is that with just a little imagination, we all might be found to possess true superpowers! This isn’t the first or last book where a child delightedly discovers her own superpowers. But it may be just about the driest, funniest, and sweetest, where the discovery is handled with humor and charm. One of the book’s true pleasures is that it’s a girl who discovers her own extraordinary abilities, and when her powers fail, as they must, she discovers them in her mom. All of which leads to a lovely intimacy between the two. Michaël Escoffier was born in France in 1970. Raised by a family of triceratops, he discovered his passion for writing and telling stories at a young age. He lives in Lyon, France, with his wife and two children. Born in Brazil of American parents, Kris Di Giacomo is a popular children’s book illustrator who has lived in France for a long time. After living in the United States for a while, she moved to France, where teaching English to young children and discovering French picture books were the triggers that led her to try her hand at illustrating stories. Kris has illustrated a good twenty-five books, many of which have been published in many languages.
Having discovered her own superpowers, our little heroine is poised to discover them in others too. Most especially, her mom!

Enchanted Lion Books Pomelo’s Big Adventure
Ramona B˘ adescu
Illustrated by Benjamin Chaud

Here, for the first time, Pomelo leaves the safety of his garden, the only home he’s ever known. Having found the courage to set off on an adventure, he takes to the road on a journey of self-discovery, hoping to find other elephants and clues about his origins. In these pages, Pomelo hears, sees, smells, and feels things he’s never before experienced. And most miraculously of all, he learns about Papa and Mama. Indeed, he finds much more than he ever hoped or dreamed he would. Pomelo Begins to Grow was a New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2011. Of Pomelo Explores Color, Pamela Paul wrote in the New York Times: “It’s a book that’s worth a second—and a third, and a fourth—look.” And of Pomelo’s Opposites, Sarah Harrison Smith wrote in the New York Times: “One of the pleasures of this latest book . . . is that although it is witty and occasionally profound, it doesn’t feel pitched at adults. . . . Pomelo’s Opposites is the kind of book that can be enjoyed, at its simplest level, for its charming drawings and warm colors, but there’s more to be found on repeated readings.” Ramona Ba ˘ descu was born in Romania in 1980. She arrived in France at the age of eleven and started to write for children ten years later. She has written many wonderful books for children of all ages and currently lives in Marseille, France. Benjamin Chaud lives and works in the south of France. He has illustrated an impressive number of picture books and has written a few as well.
Large, lovely pages of cactuses, canyons, and the open road: this isn’t just a panorama but a true Pomelorama-adventure!

Introducing Lacewing Books from Engine Books Lacewing Books, an imprint of Engine Books, publishes literary fiction for young adult readers, releasing only two titles per year so that each can receive the proper care and attention good books need to blossom into greatness. Fans of John Green, S.E. Hinton, Matthew Quick, Jay Asher, and Sara Zarr will enjoy our titles, which will include Barbara Shoup’s Looking for Jack Kerouac (next page); Where Wicked Starts (October 2014), co-written by Elizabeth Stuckey-French and Patricia Henley; and The Book of Laney (March 2015), the first young adult novel from Myfanwy Collins. Editor Andrew Scott brings a keen eye for the stories teens (and adults) need and love, while publisher Victoria Barrett’s oversight ensures that all Lacewing titles exhibit the high quality readers have come to expect from Engine Books.

Engine Books Looking for Jack Kerouac
Barbara Shoup

It wasn’t Duke Walczak’s fault that I took off for Florida, like Kathy thought. The truth is, we started getting sideways with each other on our class trip to New York and Washington D.C. nearly a year earlier—which, looking back, is ironic since she was the one dead set on going. From the author of Wish You Were Here and Stranded in Harmony (American Library Association Best Books for Young Adults), and Vermeer’s Daughter (a School Library Journal Best Adult Book for Young Adults). In 1964, Paul Carpetti discovers Jack Kerouac’s On the Road while on a school trip to New York and begins to question the life he faces after high school. Then he meets a volatile, charismatic Kerouac devotee determined to hit the road himself. When the boys learn that Kerouac is living in St. Petersburg, Florida, they go looking for answers. Barbara Shoup is the author of seven novels and the co-author of two books about the fiction craft. She is the recipient of numerous grants from the Indiana Arts Council, two creative renewal grants from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the 2006 PEN/Phyllis Naylor Working Writer Fellowship, and the 2012 Eugene and Marilyn Glick Regional Indiana Author Award. She was the writer-in-residence at Broad Ripple High School Center for the Humanities and the Performing Arts in Indianapolis for twenty years. Currently, she is the executive director of the Indiana Writers Center.

The Gryphon Press The Forgotten Rabbit
Nancy Furstinger
Illustrations by Nancy Lane

With its compelling color illustrations and evocative descriptions, The Forgotten Rabbit tells the tale of Bella the rabbit as she makes a giant leap from neglected Easter bunny to cherished animal companion. A baby rabbit is chosen as an Easter present, but is soon forgotten by the family’s children as they pursue other activities. Her cage is moved outside, and she is rarely tended. As winter comes, she grows weak with hunger and curls into herself to disappear. Then one night a girl called Rosalita takes her out of her cage, telling her that she has a new home, one in which she will never again be forgotten. Enjoying love, care, and a new name—Bella— she takes to the fun of agility lessons. Bella wins first prize in a rabbit agility contest—jumping with joy into the always-loving arms of Rosalita. Written so that children five and up can immediately grasp the point, this children’s picture book gives honest but charming insights into the proper care of a rabbit as a companion animal. The story is suspenseful, moving, and, in the end, joyful. The active language will delight children while helping them build vocabulary skills. Nancy Furstinger is the author of nearly one hundred books, including another Gryphon Press title, Maggie’s Second Chance. Nancy Lane has illustrated twenty-seven books in twenty-five years, including the Gryphon Press titles A Home for Dakota, Call the Horse Lucky, and KoKoCat, Inside and Out.

Ig Publishing Written In The Stars
Lois Duncan

From the master of thrillers and the supernatural comes a collection of thirteen short stories that have never been published before in book form. Written in the Stars contains Lois Duncan’s earliest stories—one published at the age of thirteen—from the tale of an army sergeant whose suspicious behavior sets off a chain reaction, to a group of children (humorously) tormenting their temporary guardian. This unique collection, whose stories originally appeared in magazines such as Seventeen and American Girl, is a marvelous portrait of the depth and breadth of Duncan’s work, covering topics such as WWII, parenthood, sibling relationships, and love. As a special bonus, Lois has followed each story with a brief essay describing her work and life at the time the story was written. Written in the Stars is a must-have addition to the library of work from this spectacular and groundbreaking young adult author. Lois Duncan is the author of over fifty books, ranging from children’s picture books to poetry to adult nonfiction, but is best known for her young adult suspense novels, such as Stranger With My Face and I Know What You Did Last Summer. She has been awarded the Margaret A. Edwards Award, presented by School Library Journal, and the ALA Young Adult Library Services Association Award for “a distinguished body of adolescent literature.” In 2009 she received the Katharine Drexel Award, awarded by the Catholic Library Association “to recognize an outstanding contribution by an individual to the growth of high school and young adult librarianship and literature.”

Ig Publishing Domestic Arrangements
Norma Klein
Introduction by Judy Blume

Originally published in 1982, Domestic Arrangements is the story of a fourteenyear-old New York teen named Tatiana, an unintentional ingénue who becomes notorious for filming a nude scene for a major movie. Tatiana’s newfound fame—which includes interviews, magazine covers, and publicists—is set against the backdrop of an increasingly adult personal life, as her parents file for divorce, her sister becomes increasingly jealous of her sibling’s success, and she must choose between her teenage boyfriend and new, older loves. A stunning example of Norma Klein’s fearless take on the complexities of adolescence, Domestic Arrangements is an indelible portrait of a girl on the cusp of adulthood, learning to balance the challenges of life in the spotlight with love, family, and friendship. This edition features a brand new introduction by Norma’s long-time friend, renowned children’s author Judy Blume. Norma Klein was best known for young adult works that dealt with family problems, childhood and adolescent sexuality, as well as social issues like racism, sexism, and contraception. Her first novel, Mom, the Wolf Man and Me (1972), was about the daughter of an unmarried, sexually active woman. Her subsequent works included Sunshine, It’s Okay If You Don’t Love Me, Breaking up, and Family Secrets. Because of their subject matter, many of her books sparked considerable controversy, and a 1986 American Library Association survey found that nine of her novels had been removed from libraries. In an interview that same year with the New York Times, Klein said, “I’m not a rebel, trying to stir things up just to be provocative. I’m doing it because I feel like writing about real life.” She died in 1989 at the age of fifty.
What happens when a fourteen-year-old who has just made her first movie—complete with a “tasteful” nude scene—takes her first lover?

Ig Publishing Ludell
Brenda Wilkinson

A National Book Award nominee in 1975, Ludell is the first book in a groundbreaking trilogy about a young African American girl growing up during the 1950s in a small Georgia town.

Karadi Tales Whimsy
Annie Besant
Illustrated by Ruchi Mhasane
But what is whimsy? Is it the madness of Fox or the weirdness of Prat? These two delightfully absurd creatures compete with each other to be the most whimsical. This is a warm, funny, gorgeously illustrated picture book about weirdness, differences, and the very endearing nature of eccentricity. Ruchi Mhasane’s gift for comic composition perfectly complements Annie Besant’s humorous text. The lush images, sweeping vistas, and remarkable close-ups add to the whimsical nature of the tale. The nuanced text never states more than it has to, leaving much up to the imagination, while still fueling it with quiet, quirky wisdom.

They go on a hunt for whitetail deer in the cottonwood bottoms around the ranch which is an ancient buffalo wallow. A few days later a cowboy crew comes to the ranch to work Papa’s cattle the old-fashioned way—with a rope and drag branding. Wilder gets the opportunity to do the strenuous and sometimes dangerous work with grown men. Together Wilder and Papa face several trials that only a place like Texas can provide. S. J. Dahlstrom is a writer in west Texas. He has numerous magazine credits for his writing and photography. The Adventures of Wilder Good is his first book series. In his writing he draws on his experiences as a cowboy, minister, husband, father, and boys ranch founder.
As the sole child during his stay on his grandfather’s ranch, Wilder faces the trials of old-fashioned west Texas ranching.
