On Sale Now : New Releases

Displaying new releases at the beginnning of the month, with characters of color or that sfeature a diverse cast, is my only ongoing feature.  Though recently I've considered stopping it, because each month I am missing a lot of titles.  Not working in a bookstore anymore, I am out of the new release loop, and the lists are more incomplete then I would like.  Though I will continue it for now
July New Releases (or at least this year)
Love Amalia by Alma Flor Ada and Gabriel M. Zubizarreta

Postcards from Pismo by Michael Scotto (May)
Flying Dragon by Natalie Dias Lorenzi

Before You Go by James Preller
Cornered: 14 Stories of Bullying and Defiance edited by Rhoda Belleza
The Letter Q:Queer Writers to their Younger Selves editied by Sarah Moon and James Lecesne (May)
Dark Companion by Marta Acosta

Team Human by Sarah Rees Brennan and Justine Larbalestier

Down to the Bone by Mayra Lazara Dole

Dust Girl by Sarah Zettel (June)
Losers in Space by John Barnes* (April), This one came to my attention thanks to the Booksmugglers rave review. (I quickly added this to my library queue)

*I loved Barnes last novel, Tales of the Madman Underground, which is  more proof that I am losing my find the new release edge. Last year I would not have missed a title by an author who's last novel I couldn't stop talking about.

DOWN TO THE BONE is a lush book, but it's not new. It came out in 2008. But this looks as if it's being re-released, which is good news!

This edition seems to be written for an older audience with a lot of changes and updates, different from original, more literary. Supposed to be released July 10but I bought it at amazon, pre-ordered and arrived immediately. "Down to the bone" is even better the second time around.

Flying the Dragon looks quite interesting!
