It’s Editors’ Picks: Spring Previews Week here at Scholastic and we can’t wait to learn about the hot reads that we have in store! Get ready for some awesome books, chosen by the editor of TAB, Trevor Ingerson.
Lincoln’s Grave Robbers by Steve Sheinkin
Criminals plotting to steal Lincoln’s body…that kind of stuff only happens in the movies, right? Nope. It happened. This crime thriller from the author of The Notorious Benedict Arnold and BOMB reads more like a novel than a work of nonfiction. It’s perfect for fans of Chasing Lincoln’s Killer.
Dr. Frankenstein’s Daughters by Suzanne Weyn
This book is perfect for any reader who loves Victorian fiction. It’s clever and macabre, and it’s one page-turner that you won’t want to put down.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
It’s a cyborg Cinderella! What more could you want?! This sci-fi retelling of the Cinderella story is a must-read and the sequel, Scarlet, will be available in TAB March!
The Runaway King by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Getting straight to the point—this series is Game of Thrones for middle grade. Mind games, sword fighting, treachery, and more will keep you on the edge of your seat. The sequel to The False Prince does not disappoint.
Pinned by Sharon G. Flake
This is one of my picks for Best Books of 2012 and it’s now in paperback exclusively for Book Clubs. A poignant and real story about love, self-discovery, and the power and importance of literacy. Both Adonis and Autumn have so much to overcome individually—you’ll root for them and cheer on their perseverance.
