Every summer the trucks roll in, bringing the carnival and its infinite possibilities to town. This year Tessa and her younger sister, Lulu, are unchaperoned and want to be first in line to experience the rides, the food . . . and the boys. Except this summer, jealousy will invade their relationship for the first time, setting in motion a course of events that can only end in tragedy, putting everyone's love and friendship to the test.

Alternating chapters of prose and comics are interwoven in The Year of the Beasts, an extraordinary novel from Cecil Castellucci and Nate Powel that will break your heart and crack it wide open at the same time.

With a truly authentic voice, debut YA novelist Dana L. Davis brings to glorious life teenage Tiffany Sly in all her angst, uncertainty and intelligence as she navigates her new situations - family, city, friends. Moving to the Los Angeles area from Chicago to live with her new-found dad and his family, Tiffany's emotions are never far from the surface and sometimes explode out at inopportune times -- but that is what is so refreshing about her and how Davis expertly shows us the many facets of a real teen as she struggles to come to grips with grief and separation. Highly recommended! - Maureen
