Reminder: YA Extravaganza April 18th at 7.00

Just a reminder - if you are in the Bay Area you will not want to miss this wonderful event. Gayle Forman, Stephanie Perkins, Nina LaCour, and Jess Rothenberg will be at kepler's on April 18th at 7.00 to talk about their books. And the panel will be hosted by Heidi Kling. Doesn't get better than that.
Don't miss this evening full of fun, fashion, romance, road trips, and heartbreak with some of YA's most exciting writers of contemporary fiction.
We love all these books and we know you will too.
Join us.

Here's a little blurb about all the books. I've recently run reviews of Anna and the French Kiss, If I Stay, and The Catastrophic History of You and Me. And I'm reading the Disenchantments right now (SO good!)

Gayle Forman, Where She Went

It's been three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life. Now Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York, chance brings the pair together for one last night when they revisit the past and open their hearts.

Nina Lacour, The Disenchantments

Colby's post-high school plans have long been that he and his best friend Bev would tour with her band, then spend a year in Europe. When Bev announces she will start college just after the tour, Colby struggles to understand why she changed her mind and what losing her means for his future.

Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Everything is pretty perfect in budding designer Lola Nolan's life until the Bell twins return to the neighborhood. When Cricket steps out from his twin sister's shadow and back into Lola's life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

Jess Rothenberg, The Catastrophic History of You and Me

When Brie's boyfriend says he doesn't love her it breaks her heart--literally. But her family is unravelling, her best friend is keeping a secret about Jacob and his betrayal, and then there's Patrick, Brie's guide and resident Lost Soul, who just might hold the key to her forever after.

Also must include
Heidi Kling's Sea

Still haunted by nightmares of her mother's death, Sienna reluctantly travels to Indonesia with her father to help tsunami orphans with their post traumatic stress disorder. The last thing she expects is to fall for Deni, a brooding Indonesian boy who lives there. When Deni hears that his father may be alive, Sienna doesn't think twice about running away with him to the epicenter of the disaster. Unfortunately, what they find there could break both their hearts.

Can't wait!
