Dark Books for Teens
Lands Atlantic Publishing House was a vendor at the 2010 West Virginia Book Festival in Charleston, W.Va. last month (Oct. 2010). The publish books for young adults.
I [Danny Pettry have discovered that I find most enjoyment from reading books from the "young adult" section! Many books in the young adult section and even teen books aimed for women seem to have a dark edge to them (based on my experiences) reading them.
I regret to say that I'm not sure who the woman in this picture is. She is with the publishing company or one of the signing authors. She is holding two interesting books.
Book # 1 (up front) that she is holding is called "The Pace."
It is the first book in a series about a man named Weston. He isn't immortal, but this guy does not age. An 18-year-old named Sophie wants to find out why. In her quest to discover why she uncovers something about her own life that she might not want to know.
Here is the amazon link for book # 1:
Here is the amazon link for book # 2:
Book # 2 (in the back) that she's holding is Jennifer Murgia's book "Angel Star."
It is a book about a 17-year-old girl named Teagan. She falls in love with her guardian angel who has came to Earth.
I like how Murgia puts it, “where there is light, dark follows.”
Another angel threatens the life of Teagan and all the people who she knows.
This book sounds exciting. The follow-up book Lemniscate will be released in 2011. That is exciting. I love hearing about creative people who are creating things!
Here is an amazon link for the book:
