Rock out to this is teen LIVE Music in our Courtyard from the Mann Sisters. In case you didn’t know already – but we think you probably do – here’s a little something about each of the amazing authors and each of their amazing new books: In Libba’s Beauty Queens (Scholastic, $18.99), a plane of beauty pageant contestants crashes on a desert island. Beauty queens, a desert island, and the book comes from the hilarious and profound mind of Libba Bray. Nuff said. (Libba fact: She won the Printz Award for her bestseller Going Bovine last year. The Printz Award is a big deal in YA fiction. As big as it gets.)In Meg’s new book, Abandon (Scholastic, $17.99), Pierce tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back. (Meg fact: Her books, The Princess Diaries, have sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. That’s a lot of books. A whole lot.) In Maggie’s Forever (Scholastic, $17.99). the hotly anticipated finale to her No. 1 bestselling Shiver series, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in. (Maggie facts: Her last name is pronounced "Steve-Otter." Like the name, "Steve," and the little furry animal otter. She is an award-winning colored pencil artist, and she plays several musical instruments, including the Celtic harp and the bagpipes.) Three amazing authors. One amazing night. this is teen LIVE.
