This coming year is full of even more debuts, sequels AND conclusions. It’s packed with dystopian survival stories, love stories, cyborgs, real books for real teens, YA author heavyweights, new worlds, old worlds, time travel, zombies, fierce reads, songs that will save your life, the power of love–and, have we mentioned the sequel to Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo?
