For the Future (12)

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!

Amelia O'Donohue Is So Not A Virgin by Helen FitzGerald (November 1, 2010): One favor leads to a secret so big it just might change everything...
Teenage Waistland by Lynn Biederman and Lisa Pazer (November 9, 2010): A story of betrayal, intervention, a life-altering operation, and how a long-buried truth can prove far more devastating than the layers of fat that protect it.
A Time of Miracles by Anne-Laure Bondoux (November 9, 2010): Blaise and Gloria's flee from the Soviet Union to France. A heartbreaking tale of exile, sacrifice, hope, and survival.

The Sweetness of Salt by Cecilia Galante (November 9, 2010): Instead of the summer she had painstakingly laid out, Julia follows her sister Sophie back to Vermont, where Sophie is opening a bakery—and struggling with some secrets of her own.
Blank Confession by Pete Hautman (November 16, 2010): Shayne is not afraid of anything. He seems too smart. And his background doesn't add up. But when he walks into the police department to confess to a murder, it quickly becomes apparent that nothing is as it seems.
Tutored by Allison Whittenberg (December 14, 2010): This edgy story about a star-crossed couple features strong African American characters and sparkles with smart, quirky dialogue and fresh observations on social pressures and black-on-black prejudice.

Smile For The Camera by Kelle James (November 2, 2010): A true story of escaping abuse in a small-town to encounter more in the big city and the way one girl overcame them both.
Threads and Flames by Esther Friesner (November 24, 2010): One hundred years after the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, this moving young adult novel gives life to the tragedy and hope of this transformative event in American history.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (December 2, 2010): "No one captures the exhilarating and exhausting `but-does-he-like-me?!' question better than Stephanie Perkins. A scrumptious read." - Justina Chen
