Freakboy

Ellen Hopkins calls this YA debut about a teenage boy coming to terms with his place on the transgender spectrum "an important story written with compassion and startling insight."

From the outside, Brendan Chase seems to have it pretty easy. He’s a star wrestler, a video game aficionado, and a

loving boyfriend to his seemingly perfect match, Vanessa. But on the inside, Brendan struggles to understand why his body feels so wrong—why he sometimes fantasizes having long hair, soft skin, and gentle curves. Is there even a name for guys like him? Guys who sometimes want to be girls? Or is Brendan just a freak?

ISBN: 9780374324728 $18.99 / $21.99 Can.

In razor-sharp verse, Kristin Clark folds three narratives into one powerful story: Brendan trying to understand his sexual identity, Vanessa fighting to keep her and Brendan’s relationship alive, and Angel struggling to confront her demons. Kristin Elizabeth Clark always knew she wanted to be a writer. She began dabbling in haiku in the third grade – this “experimentation” turned out to be a gateway to the harder stuff: book-length verse. She lives and writes in Northern California where she has worked as a child advocate within the juvenile justice system, and as a children’s theatre producer. She is a proud volunteer at Project Outlet in Mountain View, CA. Freakboy is her young adult debut.

back to life! But there’s something weird about the new Frankie. He’s now a Big Fat Zombie Goldfish with hypnotic powers, and he wants revenge. Tom has a difficult choice to make – should he save his evil brother, or his new fishy friend? Mo O’Hara grew up in Pennsylvania, and now lives in London, where she works as a writer, actor, and storyteller, visiting theaters and schools all across the UK and Ireland. Mo and her brother once brought their own pet goldfish back from the brink of death (true fact).

Praise For... Excerpt: Sami was still holding the goldfish but she was much quieter now. She just whispered, “swishy little fishy” over and over. Frankie stared at her with his big green bulging eyes and she just stared ahead. What was with this goldfish? He could survive toxic gunge, jump out windows, and now he could make the noisiest little kid on the planet go quiet. As I looked at Frankie a little lightbulb went on somewhere in the back of my head. Frankie’s glowing green eyes. They looked like the “Undead Evil Gaze” that the Zombies in Mark’s comics used to hypnotize people. And Sami’s stare! She was looking halfway through the wall and up my left nostril at the same time. It was a goldfish stare! Maybe I hadn’t saved Frankie’s life at all when I shocked him with the battery? Maybe I brought him back from the dead!

Excerpts/Q&A Can you tell us a bit about Promised, the third book in the trilogy? You can probably guess from the end of Prized that in the third book Gaia takes the people of Sylum back to the Enclave, where conditions have deteriorated during her absence. It gets icky. People get hurt. But the story has some sweet parts, too, and a few good laughs. For me, the best part was having so many of my favorite characters to play with, all in the same place. I have loved working in the series. I hope it shows. Did you always like to write? I suppose so. In seventh grade, I started a journal as an assignment, and I kept up with it until writing and thinking became the same thing. I feel like the words on the computer screen are my mind working there. Writing fiction is, for me, the coolest way to experiment with the truth. And revising. I adore revising. I've revised this paragraph about eight times. For whom did you write the Birthmarked series? I wrote it for myself and my kids, and I was thinking about my ninth-grade English students, too. I'm an impatient reader, so I was aiming for...

Excerpts/Q&A Q&A: What’s it like to write with your spouse? You mean “former spouse”? Actually, we did fine. We'd co-authored a lot of books, but it had been a decade since we’d worked together. (And in that decade peace had reigned in the Applegate-Grant household.) So we were a bit nervous about working together again, but almost no dishes were shattered and there were very few divorce threats. Katherine, what traits would you give the perfect male? It seems to me the perfect male has a lot in common with your average dog. He forgives your faults. He makes you laugh. And he pretends to listen (even when he has no idea what you’re talking about.)

the beginning of the band's career. This gorgeous, accessible graphic novel is an intimate peek into the early years of the world's greatest rock band. The heart of Baby's In Black is a love story. The “fifth Beatle,” Stuart Sutcliffe, fell in love with the beautful Astrid Kirchherr when she recruited the Beatles for a sensational (and famous) photography session in Hamburg. Sutcliffe's meteoric career as a modern artist was cut short when he died unexpectedly a year later. This New York Times bestselling comic presents the early career of the Beatles in moody black and white artwork by rising German comics star Arne Bellstorf. Arne Bellstorf was born in Dannenberg, Germany in 1979. Since 2006 he has been writing and illustrating a monthly comic page for a German newspaper, Der Tagesspiegel. Besides working as an illustrator and comic artist, he also coedits the annual Orang comic magazine with Sascha Hommer. Together, they founded Kiki Post, a small collective and independent publishing house for comics, in 2004. Baby's In Black was a success (a New York Times bestseller) in the US in hardcover and is now being released in paperback.

Praise For... Baby's in Black: "Bellstorf’s ability to capture the famous faces with a few simple tweaks is remarkable, and his expressive charcoals fit the whole artsy scene well." —Booklist "The Beatles' story forms a backdrop to the compelling tale of Astrid and Stu, and although readers will doubtless enjoy glimpses of "the lads" (distinguishable mainly by noses, eyebrows, and John's snarky attitude), it's doomed

Now in paperback: Mark Siegel's New York Times bestselling graphic novel story of men and mermaids, "enhanced by haunting, erotically charged drawings." (John Irving)

ISBN: 9781596439269 $15.99 / $18.50 Can.

One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular—and notoriously reclusive—author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse. As three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens. A mysterious and beguiling love story in graphic novel format with elements of Poe, Twain, Hemingway, and Greek mythology, drawn in moody black-and-white charcoal, Sailor Twain is a study in romance, atmosphere, and suspense.

Mark Siegel was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and grew up in France. He is the editorial director of First Second and an accomplished writer and illustrator. He is the illustrator of To Dance: A Ballerina's Graphic Novel, a Robert F. Sibert Award Honor Book, written by his wife, Siena Cherson Siegel; and author and illustrator of the picture book Moving House, published by Roaring Brook Press. The hardcover edition of Sailor Twain, Siegel's latest work, was a New York Times bestseller. sailortwain.com

Praise For... Sailor Twain: “This extraordinary work of fiction pushes the graphic novel well beyond its previous limits. The narrative takes us on many journeys through space and time, but is more than a mere tale. It’s about past and present, the absolute importance of myth, of language, of stories
