- Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz. I've had a hold request for this on my desk since last February...It's finally here Amanda!
- Front and Center by Catherine Murdock. This one also...I've skimmed bits and pieces of Dairy Queen - someday I'll sit down and read the whole thing.
- Wish you were dead by Todd Strasser. Didn't realize until I saw more reviews that this isn't a typical Strasser, more a mystery/thriller, which is ok as we need more mysteries.
- Demon King by Cinda Chima. A gamble - I have a couple firm Chima fans, but will they want to read a long "high fantasy" novel? We'll see.
- Going Bovine by Libba Bray. Part of my "more funny books with non-gender-specific-covers campaign".
- Gorgeous by Rachel Vail. The previous book, Lucky, was very popular here.
- Liar by Justine Larbalestier. I skimmed the end really quickly. Woo. This isn't going to be popular with everyone, but it's definitely going to find readers.
- Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. Sigh. I have to wait my turn on the holds list.
- Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness. The first book, which I got about a month ago, checked out several times, so I went ahead and added the second.
- Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart. I thought this would be popular - I was right, it went right out on a hold.
- Spellbinder by Helen Stringer. Debated putting this in juvenile, but it's right on the edge and I'm guessing the sequels will be older. My Review.
- Fire by Kristin Cashore. Someday I'm going to read Graceling...

New Stuff at the Library! - YA Edition
Ah, here's our big cart. First, the YA, because except for the holds, the new YA materials are actually going onto a cart back in my office - they won't go on the shelf until our "grand opening" of the new teen area on the 19th.
