This Week’s YA Book News and New Releases

Hey YA Readers!

Before diving into this week’s news, a short note to say I mis-wrote when I called Karen M. Manus’s newest book Two Can Keep A Secret. That came out last January! The latest one, out now and a sequel to One of Us Is Lying is actually One Of Us Is Next. Two books with “One” in the title are sequels. The book with “Two,” is standalone.

And now, onto new books and book news!
