Join us for an evening of young adult fiction featuring a panel discussion with five authors. The sequel to the action-packed Reboot, Amy Tintera's Rebel (Harper Teen) is a can't-miss thrill ride, perfect for fans of James Patterson, Veronica Roth, and Marie Lu. Mila 2.0: Renegade (Katherine Tegen Books), the suspenseful, heart-wrenching follow-up to Debra Driza's Mila 2.0, will leave readers racing to turn the last page. Kasie West's On the Fence (Harper Teen) is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it. Whirlwind romance and breathtaking action continues in Shannon Messenger's Let the Storm Break (Simon Pulse), the sequel to Let the Sky Fall. In Lisa Schroeder's The Bridge from Me to You (Point), new girl Lauren and football hero Colby come together, fall apart, and build something stronger than either of them thought possible. This panel discussion will be moderated by Novel Novice.

Publisher Comments:

In this riveting debut, a telepathic girl must figure out why she is the key to her brand-new world — before the wrong person finds the answer first.

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She's skipped multiple grades and doesn't really connect with the older kids at school, but she's not comfortable with her family, either. and Sophie has a secret — she's a Telepath, someone who can read minds. But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she's not alone. He's a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well...she isn't. Fitz opens Sophie's eyes to a shocking truth, and almost instantly she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.

But Sophie still has secrets, and they're buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death — and time is running out.


About the Author

Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learned — among other things — that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She also regularly eats cupcakes for breakfast, sleeps with a bright blue stuffed elephant named Ella, and occasionally gets caught talking to imaginary people. So it was only natural for her to write stories for children. Keeper of the Lost Cities is her first novel, with Let the Sky Fall, a young adult novel, to follow in 2013. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats. Visit her online at
