April 2012

April’s roundup of Cool & New Books includes Lauren Conrad's THE FAME GAME, which puts L.A. CANDY’s Madison Parker in the spotlight, but with a new rival; GRAVE MERCY, the beginning of Robin LaFevers’ His Fair Assassin trilogy, a historical fantasy series in which convents are training schools for female assassins serving as the handmaidens for Death; and THE LIST by Siobhan Vivian, which tracks the repercussions of a list announcing the “prettiest” and the “ugliest” girls in school.
