17th Street Location

These Launches Are All That and a Cup of Tea!

Join Books of Wonder for the launch of two fabulous new YA titles, A British Girl's Guide to Hurricanes and Heartbreak, the deliciously daring new YA title from LAURA TAYLOR NAMEY, and Eight Dates and Nights, the cozy new holiday romance from BETSY ALDREDGE

Join us in-store for:

  • A British Girl's Guide to Hurricanes and Heartbreak by LAURA TAYLOR NAMEY. England has always been home for Flora, but when her mother dies after a long illness, Flora feels untethered, unsure of the plans her family has for her. More than ever, she’s the chaotic “hurricane” in her household, not knowing how to manage her stormy emotions. So she decides to escape to Miami without telling anyone — especially her longtime friend Gordon. Despite her tropical change of scenery, her self-doubts about university follow. Romance is just as uncertain, as landing in Miami puts her in the flashbulb world of teen influencer Baz, a Miami Cuban who shares her love for photography. But Flora’s more conflicted than ever when she begins to see future architect Gordon in a new light.
  • Eight Dates and Nights by BETSY ALDREDGE. New Yorker Hannah is allergic to exactly two things, horses and tinsel. Unfortunately, she’s surrounded by both when she’s snowed in at her grandmother’s home in a small Texas town. Super lonely, missing latkes and reliable Wi-Fi, Hannah wanders into an old deli where she meets the only other Jewish teen around, Noah. He's equal parts adorable and full of annoying, over the top spirit that he’s determined to share with Hannah, one itchy Hanukkah sweater at a time. But after a spectacularly memorable kiss, Hannah begins to wonder if maybe there’s more to Hanukkah than she thought...

*One book may be brought from home to be signed for every book purchased at the event.
