Bucking the trend of the many post-apocalyptic series that are all the rage right now, Alexandra Coutts’ new YA novel Tumble & Fall is a standalone novel set in the present day, not the future. So think pre-apocalyptic drama. Here’s the official description: “The world is spinning in the shadow of oncoming disaster. An asteroid is set to strike the earth in just one week’s time; catastrophe is unavoidable. The question isn’t how to save the world — the question is, What to do with the time that’s left? Against this stark backdrop, three teens are swept up into intertwining stories of love, friendship and family—all with the ultimate stakes at hand.”

Stephen Rubin, president and publisher of Henry Holt and Company, announced that Bill O’Reilly, best known for anchoring the Fox News program The O’Reilly Factor, will follow-up his best-selling books, Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot and Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever, with another chronicle of events. O’Reilly’s newest venture is of a more biblical fashion. Along with Martin Dugard, O’Reilly will write Killing Jesus: A History.
According to a press release, “Killing Jesus will tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a beloved and controversial young revolutionary brutally killed by Roman soldiers. O’Reilly will recount the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable.”
“Jesus Christ has not walked among us physically for more than 2,000 years, yet his presence today is felt the world over and his spirit is worshipped by more than 2.2 billion people. His teachings, his legacy, his life as a flesh-and-blood man, and his death created the world in which we live,” O’Reilly said in a press release.
The book will be published on Sept. 24. Check out the cover below: READ FULL STORY »
Growing up is one thing, but undergoing a complete makeover is something else.
At least that’s what fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables are saying about the newest cover of the three-piece set published in November. In the books — which are in the public domain and therefore susceptible to any cover — the character is a pre-teen described as having red hair and freckles, and yet the newest cover reveals a very mature blond-haired, blue-eyed young lady running her fingers through her hair. Is this how you pictured Anne?

In May 2003, a new name in magical adventure arrived on the young-reader bookshelf: The Spiderwick Chronicles, which gave us the tale of the brave Grace brood (twins Simon and Jared, along with their big sister, Mallory), their missing father and a coveted one-of-a-kind tome that reveals the secret magic all around us.

The Uprising, the follow-up to Lisa M. Stasse’s super-addictive The Forsaken, doesn’t hit shelves until August 2013. But EW can exclusively reveal the cover today. Here’s what Stasse had to say about the cover: ”I was really excited when I saw the cover for The Uprising. It’s a little different from The Forsaken, but it still has the same mysterious, edgy sci-fi feel. I’m totally in love with Lizzy Bromley’s work. She designed the cover, and a great British artist named Dan Mountford took the photos for it. Much like The Forsaken, there are a lot of hidden secrets in the cover art. It will probably have more resonance for readers once they’ve read the book.” READ FULL STORY »
