I will be gone to the Public Library Association meeting next week and hope to come back with lots of news about new titles arriving in the spring and summer. The entry for this week will begin with the titles that are arriving in April.
The first title that I'm excited about is Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton. Lupton's first novel was Sister which I raved about in a prior post. Her second movel is due out on 4/24 and I have my name on the list for it. Grace tries to reach her daughter, Jenny, in a blazing school. She wakes up in the hospital badly burned along with her daughter and discovers that the fire was no accident but an attempt to end Jenny's life. The press in the U.K. have raved about the book calling it 'compulsive', 'compelling', 'searing' and 'extraordinary'. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
