YOUNG ADULT
THE HERE AND NOW
Random House Children’s Books is thrilled to publish a new YA novel from Ann Brashares,
worldwide bestselling author of the SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS series, which
was published to great success in 39 languages.
Seventeen-year-old Prenna James immigrated to New York when she was twelve. Except
Prenna didn’t come from a different country. She came from a different time.
Prenna comes from a future where a mosquito-borne illness has mutated into a pandemic,
killing millions and leaving the world in ruins. Prenna and the others who escaped to the
present day must follow a strict set of rules: never reveal where they’re from, never interfere
with history, and never, ever, be intimate with anyone outside their community. No one is
supposed to know about their journey, but Prenna’s best friend Ethan knows her secret—
because he was there the night she arrived. A girl from the future might be able to save the
world…if only she can let go of the one thing she’s found worth keeping.
With unforgettable themes of loss, love, identity and courage, THE HERE AND NOW is a
thrilling novel from a master storyteller.

As Lyla begins to navigate the outside world—high school, new friends, and first dates—she
thinks she’s done with Pioneer and the Community. But they are not done with her. Pioneer
“miraculously” survived his shooting, and the Community sees this is a sign that he truly is a
prophet. Although in prison, Pioneer’s words still reach his followers, guiding them on a new
destructive path. Since it is Lyla’s testimony that will decide their leader’s fate, they will go to
extraordinary lengths to convince her to be one of them again. Will she be able to resist the
pull of her past?
Once again, Amy Christine Parker creates a fast-paced thriller in which loyalties are questioned
and a young woman fights to save her soul.

SUSPICION
Alexandra Monir (TIMELESS, TIMEKEEPER) returns with a romantic mystery teen girls will love.
Imogen Rockford has almost no memory of her childhood before age six, when her parents
were killed in a fire. Even her adoptive parents, who were family friends of her mother and
father, are less-than-forthcoming about her past.
Twelve years later, Imogen’s friends are preparing for college; however, Imogene remains
undecided—on school and her future. Then the letter arrives. Imogen’s grandfather is dying
and he’s given Imogen, his only heir, the deed to Rockford Manor in England—the same manor
where her parents died. Imogen immediately decides to move to the manor, knowing that with
it comes the rules, social hierarchy, and demands of being a Duchess. Imogen hopes to find
out more about her childhood and the tragic loss of her parents. But the picturesque Rockford
Manor has many secrets hidden behind the fenced-in walls and Imogen soon realizes she’s
embroiled in scandal, murder, and a mystery only the elite could conjure . . . and cover up.

HEXED
Teen girls will fall under the spell of HEXED, the first of two books from debut author
Michelle Krys, in which a cheerleader is forced into a centuries-old war between witches
and sorcerers only to uncover the first of many dark truths about her life.
Sixteen-year old Indigo Blackwood has what she thinks is the perfect high-school life—
she’s a cheerleader with a very good-looking boyfriend and a popular best friend—until
a tattooed, leather-clad stranger named Bishop arrives. Bishop informs Indie that the strange
family Bible collecting dust in the attic of her mom’s occult shop is actually a relic from the
centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers. Unfortunately, the Bible has just been
stolen. If she doesn’t get it back, every witch on the planet will die, including Indie;
according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Fresh writing and fast-paced storytelling, along with a cliff-hanger ending, will leave teen
girls eagerly awaiting the next book from Michelle Krys.

THE VIGILANTE POETS OF
SELWYN ACADEMY
Kate Hattemer’s debut novel is a hilarious and heartfelt tale about a group of friends who vow
to save their prestigious school from a corrupt reality TV show.
Witty, sarcastic Ethan and his three friends attend the esteemed Selwyn Arts Academy, where
each student is more talented than the next. A reality TV show called For Art’s Sake is being
filmed at their high school. Ethan and his friends are convinced that the show is not only
cheapening their education, it’s also ruining the reputation of the ballerina on whom Ethan
has a huge crush. While studying poetry in English class, the friends are inspired to write a
poem detailing the evils of For Art’s Sake, and secretly distribute it to the student body. But
then Luke–the creative force behind the poem and leader of the anti-show movement—
becomes a contestant on the nefarious show. It’s up to Ethan, his two remaining best friends,
and a heroic gerbil named Baconnaise to save their school. Along the way, they’ll discover a web
of secrets and corruption involving the principal, vice principal—and even their favorite teacher.

THE UNITED STATES OF ASGARD BOOK 2:
The Strange Maid
Tessa’s Gratton’s previous novels, BLOOD MAGIC and THE BLOOD KEEPER, have been published to
great international acclaim, with rights licensed in 21 languages to date. Now comes the second
book in her exciting new fantasy series, THE UNITED STATES OF ASGARD.
Signy Valborn was seven years old when she met Odin Alfather, who declared that—if she could
solve a single riddle—he would make her one of his Valkyrie. For ten years Signy has trained in the
arts of war, politics, and leadership, never dreaming that a Greater Mountain Troll might hold the
answer to the riddle, but that’s exactly what Ned the Spiritless promises her. A mysterious troll hunter
who talks in riddles and ancient poetry, Ned is a hard man to trust. Unfortunately, Signy is running
out of time. Accompanied by an outcast berserker named Soren Bearstar, she and Ned take off across
the ice sheets of Canadia to claim Signy’s destiny.
Tessa Gratton’s fans will embrace the richly drawn, Norse-influenced alternate world of the United
States of Asgard, where cell phones, rock bands, and evangelical preachers coexist with dragon
slaying, rune casting, and sword training in schools. THE SHAPE OF WIND, Book 3 in the series, will
be published in December 2015.

Can she ever truly belong to her people again?
Greenland, 1900: One summer day sixteen-year-old Billy Bah and her husband spot a familiar
ship in the bay. It belongs to the explorer Robert Peary. Years ago Billy Bah went to America
with the Peary family, and she’s happy to see Peary’s wife and daughter on board. When early
winter traps the ship in the ice, the Pearys, the crew, and the Inuit people must endure the
long, dark winter together. Billy Bah’s growing affection for a sailor means she must choose:
her home or America.
Perfect for readers who love exploration and adventure, Billy Bah’s tale will draw readers into

THE MARK OF THE DRAGONFLY
A lead title for Random House Children’s Books. Debut children’s author Jaleigh Johnson has
woven a magical adventure with a resourceful heroine girls will love.
In the scrap towns, survival depends on what you find in the meteor fields. Storms rain down
objects from other lands and, ever since Piper’s father died, scavenging these odds and ends
is how she lives. After one meteor shower, Piper finds a girl lying in the fields amid the rubble.
She’s beautiful and well-dressed, and the Dragonfly tattooed on her wrist confirms she’s the
most valuable thing Piper has ever stumbled across.
The Mark of the Dragonfly means the girl is from the Dragonfly Territories; it also means that
if Piper can get her back there, she might get a reward—possibly enough money to start a
new life. Getting to the Dragonfly Territories isn’t easy, though, and soon Piper discovers that
the girl is more valuable than Piper ever could have imagined. There are people who want her
returned—people who won’t stop until they have her.

MAGIC IN THE PARK
THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC
For decades, Ruth Chew’s magical chapter books have enchanted early readers. Now a new
generation of fantasy fans can discover the magic in these wonderful tales.
In MAGIC IN THE PARK, Jen Mace has just moved to Brooklyn. She misses the woods and fields
of her old home. While walking in the park, Jen meets Mike Steward. Together they become
fascinated by an older gentleman who is always surrounded by birds and seems to appear and
disappear quite suddenly. Jen and Mike learn that magic can happen when you least expect
it…and though it is very exciting, it can also be dangerous.
In THE TROUBLE WITH MAGIC, Barbara and Rick Benton find a wizard named Harrison Peabody
in an old bottle and quickly discover that magic isn’t as simple as it looks. But even tricky magic
is better than no magic, and soon the Bentons fly around with a large black umbrella and
befriend a sea serpent in the lake. How can they keep Harrison a secret, though, when he’s
living in their attic?

No two the same,
All beautiful.
Random House Children’s Books is honored to publish SNOWFLAKES FALL, written by
Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan and illustrated by acclaimed picture book creator
Steven Kellogg. Following the December 2012 tragedy in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, the
people of Sandy Hook adopted the snowflake as a symbol of the uniqueness of individuals
and a sign of renewal and hope. Children, families and schools from around the world sent
paper snowflakes to the town, providing messages of love and support and bringing the
magic of a winter wonderland to their community. Patricia MacLachlan and Steven Kellogg
were inspired by this outpouring of friendship to create a project that honors the children,
people and places of Sandy Hook and Newtown, where Steven Kellogg lived for 35 years.
This beautiful book is not only a tribute to the children of Sandy Hook, but also as Steven
Kellogg says “an appreciation of children everywhere.” Featuring spare, evocative text and
vibrant, iconic scenes of village life, SNOWFLAKES FALL celebrates universal themes: the
joys of childhood, the change of seasons and the cycle of life. Perfect for parents and
children to share, SNOWFLAKES FALL is destined to become a classic.

natural cycle of life.
One fine summer day, Sparrow meets a sad dandelion. Dandelion laments that a short
while ago she was the brightest yellow flower in the meadow; now a strong wind could
blow away her remaining seed pods and no one will remember her. Together, they decide
to write Dandelion’s story in the dirt, and so Dandelion tells Sparrow all the things she
has seen and loved. Later that night, a storm changes everything. Despite the destruction,
the tale of the Dandelion lives on.

THE NOISY PAINT BOX: The Colors &
Sounds of Kandinsky’s Abstract Art
When his parents sent young Vasya Kandinsky to art classes, he was expected to paint
pretty landscapes and still-lifes, just like a proper Russian boy. But Vasya was different:
He could hear bold, swirling colors. He could see vibrant sounds. And he wanted to
paint music.
Exuberant drawings by award-winning illustrator Mary GrandPré celebrate and honor
Kandinsky’s style. The color palette shifts from darker, muted tones to bold, dazzling colors
as Vasya embraces his creativity. Readers will pore over the four featured Kandinsky paintings
and the author’s note to learn more about this dynamic artist.
