Top 10 Girls of Irrepressible Spunk by Melissa Cairns

Top 10 Girls of Irrepressible Spunk by Melissa Cairns | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
Over the past few years, it has come to light how few widely acclaimed children’s books have strong, vocal female characters.  As cited in a startling video by Rebel Girls about the lack of girl power in kid’s books, only 53 of Time’s best 100 Children’s books of all time have female characters that even…

On the Smugglers' Radar |

On the Smugglers' Radar | | Young Adult Novels | Scoop.it
“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: I really enjoyed Nicky Drayden The Prey of Gods and can’t wait to read her new novel: In a land similar to South Africa, twin brothers are beset by powerful forces beyond their understanding or control in this thrilling blend of science fiction, horror, magic, and dark humor—evocative of the works of Lauren Beukes, Ian McDonald, and Nnedi Okorafor—from the author of The Prey of Gods Two brothers. Seven vices. One demonic possession. Can this relationship survive? Auben Mutze has more vices than he can deal with—six to be exact—each branded down his arm for all the world to see. They mark him as a lesser twin in society, as inferior, but there’s …
