July 2022 New Releases


Undated

Fractured Path by J.C. Cervantes (Disney Hyperion) - moved from April 2022.
1965
San Francisco, California

The 1960s are bursting with music and movement and love in San Francisco, perfect for a budding artist like Blake. Unfortunately, she feels barred from the art world by both her gender and her multi-racial heritage, making it tough to land an internship that could put her on the map. That, plus the fact that Blake’s family has been notoriously riddled with bad luck, makes her feel like she can’t catch a break. Things only get worse when Blake starts to have ominous, confusing visions that grow stronger and more frequent, prompting Blake’s aunt and uncle to tell her about a long-lost family heirloom that could be the key to everything. Fueled by the ambiguous clues in her visions, Blake sets out on a journey through the city to retrieve her ancestors’ legendary mirror. But Blake is not the only one looking for it. Soon she must attempt to unleash her own dormant powers . . . or else risk all she holds dear.

A Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy by Jeff Bishop (Putnam) - delayed from October 2021.
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl meets Paper Towns in a funny and heartfelt debut about a boy's delirious summertime quest with his ex-girlfriend.

The summer after senior year should have been a time for Cam to party and hang out with his friends. It should also have been a time for him to win back the love of his life, Allison Tandy, who'd dumped him so brutally the year before.

But it quickly becomes clear that this summer is going to be worse than a failure for Cam. It's going to be a tragedy.

Ally is left comatose after a terrible car accident on her way home from college. Then Cam tears his ACL, followed by an operation that leaves him in agony. Now Cam will be spending his time on the couch, ruminating over the fact that his ex may not survive.

But when, after taking his medication, Cam starts seeing Ally everywhere--yes, comatose Ally--he starts to think two things: 1. He might be headed for a mental breakdown and 2. This summer might just be interesting after all.

Brimming with honesty and humor, A Heavy Dose of Allison Tandy interrogates how much control we really have over matters of love . . . and life.

How Maya Got Fierce by Sona Charaiporta (Imprint) - moved from August 2021,
The Bold Type meets Younger in How Maya Got Fierce by Sona Charaipotra, a YA fish-out-of-water contemporary novel!

Maya dreams of working in magazines. But as the daughter of garlic farmers, her path is set: It’s off to Cow Camp instead. And when she accidentally destroys valuable property and gets kicked out of the program, she can’t tell her parents—or ask for the thousands of dollars she owes.

Desperate to earn enough to pay for her mistake, Maya interviews for an internship at Fierce fashion magazine—and ends up getting a full-time job offer! The only problem? They think she’s 26.

Maya is so close to making her dreams come true, even if the glam life at Fierce isn’t quite as shiny and fun as she hoped. But when she suggests the perfect candidate for a big story—and manages to get the scoop—all eyes are on her. How long can she keep her real age from her boss—and her real life from her parents?
