Books of Wonder welcomes DEBORAH SCHAUMBERG for The Tombs, CECIL CASTELLUCCI for Don't Cosplay My Heart, and RUTH LEHRER for Being Fishkill.

In The Tombs, set in New York 1882, Sixteen-year-old Avery Kohl's, mother is kidnapped by the mysterious men in crow masks who locked her in the Tombs asylum for being able to see what others couldn’t. Like her mother’s, Avery’s powers refuse to be contained. When she causes an explosion at the factory where she works, she has no choice but to run away into the dark corners of the city. Now, Avery must embrace her power and wield it—or join her mother in the cavernous horrors of the Tombs.

Don't Cosplay My Heart is a sweetly snarky, romantic novel that follows Edan as she tries to be the hero in her own real life and connect with her dream boy at a convention. When she dresses up as Gargantua from Team Tomorrow, she feels tall and powerful and that's important right now because her family is a mess and her best friend is moving away. Under all this pressure, Edan has to figure out whether or not she has the strength to be the hero of her own story.

In Being Fishkill, Carmel Fishkill lives a life that refuses to offer her security, stability, and love. At age thirteen, she begins to fight back. She becomes Fishkill Carmel, who deflects her bullies with a strong left hook and a tough new attitude. But Fishkill’s defenses falter when she meets eccentric optimist Duck-Duck Farina, and soon they, along with Duck-Duck’s mother, Molly, form a tentative family, even as Fishkill struggles to understand her place in it. This fragile new beginning is threatened by the reappearance of Fishkill’s unstable mother — and by unfathomable tragedy.
