This Fall's Most Anticipated Young Adult Novels [SHOWING SLIDE 8 OF 14]

The Raven Boys return (in Maggie Stiefvater’s Blue Lily, Lily Blue), Wicked author Gregory Maguire is back with a new novel we call “an epic rich with references, aphorisms and advice” and Scott Westerfeld’s Afterworlds not only will fascinate readers but will school other writers on how to pull off a narrative trick or two. By any measure, the next few months are rich ones for fans of young adult novels. Here’s our list of the ones we think you should pay attention to.

Kirkus Star
by Gregory Maguire

"An ambitious, Scheherazade-ian novel, rather like a nesting-doll set of stories, that succeeds in capturing some of the complexities of both Russia and life itself. (Historical fantasy. 12 & up)"
