For the Future (10)

This is a monthly meme of mine that I made up! :) It's similar to my "Waiting on Wednesday" posts, but highlights many books, not just one and doesn't include summaries.

Here's a list of young adult books that are still in-the-making or will be published in the future. This can range from being released tomorrow, to two years from now! These covers and release dates might not be permanent, it's just what I saw on Amazon, Goodreads, or the author's website. Hope this will be efficient to expand your reading pile!

You by Charles Benoit (August 24, 2010): "Charles Benoit has written a shattering, gut-wrenching novel that puts You right in the center of the story. Pick it up and you won't put it down!" -Michael Grant

The Mourning Wars by Karen Steinmetz (August 31, 2010): "Eunice’s largely imagined life makes a fascinating story with a setting that is vividly and dramatically evoked." -Booklist
Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon (September 21, 2010): A compelling romance and thought-provoking read, bringing shocking new meaning to life, death, love, and the nature of the soul.

Empty by Suzanne Weyn (October 1, 2010): It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. No heat. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.
Not That Kind of Girl by Siobhan Vivian (September 1, 2010): Slut or saint? Winner or loser? Natalie is getting tired of these forced choices - and is now going to find a way to live life in the sometimes messy, sometimes wonderful in-between.
Three Black Swans by Caroline B. Cooney (August 24, 2010): In this riveting, heartrending story, the truth changes the lives of three families—as the bonds of blood must withstand the strains of long-hidden secrets that are at last revealed.

The Secret Society of the Pink Crystal Ball by Risa Green (September 1, 2010): A fabulously original, warm, and funny teen debut that follows a trio of best friends as they navigate love, lies, school, and family-with some unlikely supernatural help.

The Frenzy by Francesca Lia Block (September 28, 2010): When she was thirteen, something terrifying and mysterious happened to Liv that she still does not understand, and now, four years later, her dark secret threatens to tear her apart from her family and true love.
Annexed by Sharon Dogar (October 4, 2010): Anne’s diary ends on August 4, 1944, but Peter’s story takes us on, beyond their betrayal and into the Nazi death camps. He details with accuracy, clarity and compassion the reality of day to day survival in Auschwitz.
