April Foolery and Teenreads.com!

Every year, I fear the approach of April and the pranks that come on April 1st. While I consider myself a rational person, I get HYPER PARANOID whenever I think someone may be messing with me. I really, really do not like the idea of anyone playing with my food, pulling a seat out from underneath me or pretending to take something away from me (especially a book!) So I was incredibly relieved that there weren’t any pranksters at our office on April Fool’s Day.

Let’s just say, the office joke came a little late in the week. Although it wasn’t a prank, our office certainly caused a stir in our building! Nikki, who only wanted a popcorn snack, found out the hard way that you must be VIGILANT while watching popcorn pop. Not only did the popcorn get burnt in the microwave, the smoke triggered the fire alarm. Fortunately, the sprinklers didn’t turn on so all of our precious books are safe --- we were, however, thoroughly shamed over the PA system that it was our fault the alarms went off. And oh, the fire department was also dispatched and the “popcorn debacle” was noted in FDNY ledgers. Did anyone else have a crazy prank or experience this week? I’d love to hear about it!

It’s almost April 23rd…do you know what that means? It’s almost World Book Night in the USA! Every year, tens of thousands of people hand out FREE BOOKS to their communities to spread the joy of reading from person to person. This is a fantastic event, which is celebrated globally in the U.S., the UK, Ireland and Germany. Some of the books being given that you'll enjoy are LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green, THE LIGHTNING THIEF: Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan and FARENHEIT 451 by Ray Bradbury. Check out their Facebook page for more information!

April is also National Poetry month! How are you planning to celebrate? For you poetry lovers, I’m sure you already have your poetry anthologies cracked open, but for those less enthused with verse, try opening up some novels with poetry-loving characters or with stories actually written in verse! Maybe TILT by Ellen Hopkins, INSIDE OUT AND BACK AGAIN by Thanhha Lai or THE SWEET REVENGE OF CELIA DOOR by Karen Finneyfrock will appeal to you. It’s always worth the exploration!

Fan of thrillers? The International Thriller Writers (ITW) announced their finalists for their 2013 Thriller Awards! The finalists for the YA category are Michelle Gagnon for DON’T TURN AROUND, Andrew Klavan for IF WE SURVIVE, Dan Krokos for FALSE MEMORY, Niall Leonard for CRUSHER and William Richter for DARK EYES. The award won’t be announced until July, so you have PLENTY of time to read all of these and decide which one YOU love the most.

Our Teen Board continues to be busy writing blogs and reviews! Check out what each member has been up to by viewing their profiles here. Are you impressed with what our Teen Board has accomplished? Are you between the ages of 13-18 and interested in being a Teen Board member? Do you know friends or family who would love this opportunity? We are now accepting applications to be a part of the July-December Teen Board! Opportunities include contributing reviews, writing blog posts, sharing ideas for the site, giving feedback on features we have and scouting trends in your own community. We're looking for a group of diverse teens around the country to be able to weigh in on YA lit and share their opinions on it. Applications close on Friday, May 24th at midnight.

To celebrate the publication of the conclusion to The Jenna Fox Chronicles, FOX FOREVER, we’re hosting a contest! Five lucky readers will win the follow-up to THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX and THE FOX INHERITANCE in which Locke Jenkins has spent 260 years as a disembodied mind in a little black box, but before he can move on, he must earn the trust of his 17-year-old daughter in order to infiltrate the home of a government official. Does being human require more than flesh and blood? Enter by April 23rd at noon ET for your chance to win!

With the movie adaptation of her CITY OF BONES: The Mortal Instruments coming to theaters later this year, Cassandra Clare wraps up her The Infernal Devices trilogy with CLOCKWORK PRINCESS this month. Mortmain plans to use his Infernal Devices to destroy the Shadowhunters --- he only needs Tessa Gray to complete his plan. When Mortmain abducts Tessa, those who love her will do anything to save her, but Tessa realizes that the only person who can save her is herself. Our Teen Board member, Kate F., reviews, "Cassandra Clare wrapped up The Infernal Devices perfectly in CLOCKWORK PRINCESS. She manages to raise the stakes impossibly high, yet still gives the characters hope for the future."

Up for a psychological mystery about a girl lost in her own mind? In Liz Coley’s PRETTY GIRL-13, 16-year-old Angie Chapman must piece together the story of her kidnapping and abuse. PRETTY GIRL-13 is a disturbing --- and ultimately empowering --- page-turner about accepting our whole selves and the healing power of courage, hope and love. As Rebecca Kilberg explains, "While what happened to Angie is unbelievable, Coley’s telling of it aims to be believed...all in all, Coley paints an extremely compelling picture of a girl trying to put together her horrific past without falling to pieces." This chilling narrative is well-worth the read.

Here’s another gripping mystery for you! PERIOD 8 by Chris Crutcher follows the disappearance of a classmate that stems from one class period at the high school: Period 8. In this hour every day, the only rule is that you keep it real; that you tell the truth. But someone in Period 8 is lying. Benjamin Boche sums it up clearly when he reviews, "As far as I’m concerned, Chris Crutcher can do no wrong...Crutcher writes in a letter to his readers in the beginning of the book that he 'put this one on steroids.' All I can say is buckle up and get ready for one wild ride." I can safely say that no class in my high school led to an adventure like this one!

April seems to be the month for fantastic realistic fiction. Jessica Verdi’s debut novel, MY LIFE AFTER NOW, follows a good-girl teen who has her life planned and put together as she makes one bad choice that changes everything. Lucy just had the worst week ever. And suddenly, it's all too much --- so she does something the old Lucy would never dream of. Now her life is completely different...every moment is a gift. Because now she might not have many moments left. I actually loved this book so much, I decided to write the review! Jessica Verdi expresses Lucy’s vulnerability so well, you can’t help but root for her as she finds her path toward hope. Definitely read this book to learn about an issue that isn’t often discussed: the teenage contraction of HIV.

April is the first full month of Spring! So what better way to celebrate than with our Spring Fling Giveaway! Enter to win one of five Teenreads.com totes with copies of each of the following books: CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS by Miriam Forster, PIVOT POINT by Kasie West, THE SHADOW GIRL by Jennifer Archer, THE SCORPIO RACES by Maggie Stiefvater, THIS IS WHAT HAPPY LOOKS LIKE by Jennifer E. Smith, RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA: A Novel by Kimberly McCreight, MOONGLOW by Michael Griffo, UNREMEMBERED by Jessica Brody and THE PROGRAM by Suzanne Young. The deadline for entries is April 30th at noon ET.

From the Teenreads.com Blog

Here is a selection of blogs we've recently run on Teenreads.com!

Kimberly McCreight heard her calling to write early on in her teen years, but it took her much longer to realize she couldn't let herself go without writing. Now, with her first book, RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA, coming out in early April, McCreight shares how she never gave up on her passion in this blog post, "On Determination."

I had the pleasure of attending the NYC Teen Author Festival, and since not all of you could attend this fantastic gathering of YA authors and their fans, I decided to attend as much as I could and give you the scoop. Events occurred from Monday, March 18th through Sunday, March 24th. I wrote a blog post for events on Tuesday, March 19th and Saturday, March 23rd and another one for Sunday, March 24th’s events.

Our Teen Board continues to contribute to our blog! Six of the 23 are participating in the YALSA 2013 Hub Challenge and are checking in each Wednesday in a weekly blog post. We've recently compiled some of their favorite book quotes into a blog, and now the second compilation of favorite quotes is up, too!
