Top Ten Tuesday: I really enjoyed books by these 2015 Debut YA authors. What will they do for their second books?
1. David Arnold
His debut Mosquitoland is one of my 2015 YA favorites. It is a road trip, coming-of-age, overcoming dysfunctional family tale.
2. Tommy Wallach
We All Looked Up is set in Seattle right before the big meteor wipes out life on earth as we know it. Wow.
3. Becky Albertalli
Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is already a favorite at my school. What will we get from this author next time?
4. Francesca Zappia
2015 will be remembered as the year YA Literature tackled the topic of mental illness. Made You Up, which I haven't had a chance to read yet, is about a girl who can't tell the difference between reality and delusions.
5. Renee Ahdieh
The Wrath and the Dawn, a retelling of 1001 Arabian nights, is the first book of a trilogy so we know there will be a second book.
6. Nicola Yoon
Everything Everything is probably the most popular debut I've ever been aware of before it was even published.
This debut author wrote a very thoughtful and provocative book about euthanasia in Last Leaves Falling.
Umm. I can't think of any other debut YA authors.
