Jump Into A Heart-Stopping YA!

Join us for our GREAT YA LAUNCH EVENT on 17th Street!

Vampires in a dilapidated church. WW2 codebreakers. Dark academia, and destinations unknown. Follow YA heroes who confront grungy secrets, surreal magic, and true tests of identity in this thrilling YA Launch Event, right at Books of Wonder on 17th Street!

We are pleased to host CATHERINE YUELLIE MARNEY, and ANDY MIENTUS — Live and In-Person! — for great conversations, book signings, and every stripe of YA revelry!  This can't-miss event is a celebration of magical suspense writing — and a true weekend live panel where you and your teen readers can meet their favorite writers.


  • Direwood by CATHERINE YU! In this velvet-clad 1990s gothic horror, Aja encounters a charming vampire who wants to lure her into the misty woods — just like her missing sister.
  • Killing Code by ELLIE MARNEY! Dive into a thrilling historical mystery about a girl who risks everything to track down a vicious serial killer, as the thralls of WW2 touch down upon a former girls’ college  and the wartime site of a secret US Signal Intelligence facility. 
  • Fraternity by ANDY MIENTUS! Discover paranormal brotherhood at the Blackfriars School for Boys, where a covert club for gay students uncovers a headmaster's secret occult text, and eldritch horrors beyond nightmares.
