YA Fiction @ Main


Going Bovine by Libba Bray YAL BRA (Main)510tCyVPEVL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

Sixteen-year-old slacker Cameron is diagnosed with mad cow disease. In the hospital he is visited by an angel (or hallucination?) named Dulcie who tells him of a possible cure for his illness. The catch? He has to go on a quest to find the evil Dr. X, a mysterious figure who holds the cure AND has plans to destroy the world. Cameron, his friend Gonzo, and an ancient Viking god turned garden gnome (Really!) set off on a trip across the U.S. as he attempts to save the world – and himself. Going Bovine is part fantasy, part road trip novel, and altogether undefinable. It may sound strange but it is an exhilarating, heartfelt, and humorous read.
9802372The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson YAL JOH (Main & NHC) 

Rory Deveaux leaves Louisiana to attend boarding school in London. As if getting settled at a new school in a new city isn’t enough, her arrival coincides with a series of murders believed to be committed by a Jack the Ripper copycat. Rory becomes part of the mystery after being the only witness to see a man that police believe is the prime suspect. Rory quickly becomes his next target and finds herself involved with London’s secret ghost police. The Name of the Star is a clever, high energy thriller that uniquely combines paranormal mystery, contemporary London, and even Ghostbusters. This is the first book in Johnson’s new Shades of London series and the ending is sure to leave you hoping that she hurries up with book two!

speakcvrSpeak by Laurie Halse Anderson YAL AND (Main)

Melinda starts her freshman year of high school as an outcast after a traumatic event causes her to break up an end-of-the-summer party. The novel follows Melinda through her first year of high school. It is told with first-person narration, which gives the reader a strong connection to Melinda and her observations as she struggles with isolation, attempts to come to terms with what has happened to her, and begins to find her voice with the help of an art teacher. Speak is a powerful novel that is sure to stay in your mind for its thoughtful, emotional portrayal of adolescence. Speak is a great introduction to Laurie Halse Anderson’s work. Be sure to check out her other books at the HCCC Library, too: Chains: Seeds of AmericaForgeTwisted, and Fever.
