Whoa: I've been wading through the descriptions of the "favorite fall teen reads" from a panel of big-name YA editors at the BookExpo of America. Their picks include:
Infinite Days, by debut author Rebecca Maizel (more vampire stuff, galley copies to be given out at screenings of Eclipse—that's probably all you need to know, right?)Sounds... interesting?
Matched, by debut author Ally Condie (sci-fi about girl who rejects her futuristic arranged marriage in favor of a dude with "dangerous secrets")
Plain Kate, by Erin Bow (fantasy about a girl accused of witchcraft; most promising-sounding of the bunch)
The DUFF, by Kody Keplinger ("DUFF", for those of you who don't know, stands for "Designated Ugly Fat Friend". Looks depressing.)
Firelight, by Sophie Jordan (apparently similar to The Last Unicorn, but, like, set in high school)
