Hey YA Readers!
Let’s cozy on up to the latest YA book talk.
“What’s Up in YA?” is sponsored by ZENITH, new from #1 New York Times bestselling authors Sasha Alsberg & Lindsay Cummings.
But when a routine job goes awry, the Marauder’s all-girl crew find themselves at the mercy of a dangerous bounty hunter from Andi’s past. Coerced into a life-threatening mission, and straight into the path of a shadowy ruler bent on revenge, Andi and her crew will either restore order to the ship—or start a war that will devour worlds.

Score a few YA reads on the cheap this week in digital form…
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black is a mere $3 and would be a great intro to her work OR a great place to continue your enjoyment of her writing.
If you’re itching for something dystopian, you’ll want to check out Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi at $2.
Or maybe dive into a love story with Kasie West’s Lucky in Love for $3.
