What's New? Stacking the Shelves
StS is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Hop on over there to ogle what other bloggers got this week.
The Tapper Twins Tear Up New York by Geoff Rodkey. 261 p. Little, Brown and Company, September 29, 2015. 978031634268.
Publisher synopsis: In the follow up to The Tapper Twins Go to War, Geoff Rodkey delivers another ultra-modern comedy told as oral history with texts, screenshots and smartphone photos. When Claudia initiates a citywide scavenger hunt to raise money for charity, it's not just the twins' opposing teams that run riot. With the whole school racing to trade in sights seen for points to score front row tickets at Madison Square Garden, they may not get to the finish line with their dignity-and social lives-intact!
I reviewed The Tapper Twins Go to War with Each Other for SLJ and am just thrilled to receive this arc of the next in the series.
Backlash by Sarah Darer Littman. 326 p. Scholastic Press/ Scholastic, April 28, 2015. 9780545651264.
Publisher synopsis: In critically acclaimed author Sarah Darer Littman's gripping new novel what happens online doesn't always stay online . . .
I found the author's earlier novel, Want to Go Private, to be one of the most provocative and uncomfortable novels I have ever read. I can't wait to crack this one.
A Conspiracy of Princes by Justin Somper. An Allies and Assassins novel. 480 p. Little, Brown and Company (BYR), May 26. 2015. 9780316338226.
Publisher synopsis: The newly crowned Prince Jared, ruler of All Archenfield, has inherited a kingdom in crisis. The murder of his older brother has revealed a traitorous plot in his court, calling into question who, if anyone, Jared can trust as he ascends the throne. Now the realm is on the brink of invasion from the brutal princes of Paddenburg and Jared must travel to neighboring kingdoms in search of allies to defend his throne. Little does he know that an even more dangerous plot is hatching in the Archenfield court--one that threatens to remove Jared from power. One put in motion by the very people he left in charge.
