Hotly Anticipated Reads for 2012: Abrams and Chronicle Books

Abrams and Chronicle Books have some really exciting releases in store for Spring 2012.  I know that all of these are definitely going on my wishlist!  To whet your appetite, I'm going to let Tina, the publicity assistant for Abrams and Chronicle, tell you all about these fabulous titles!

All links go to Goodreads so that you can add these to your wishlist too.

What do guys and girls really think? 12 of the most dynamic and engaging young US authors writing today team up for this one-of-a-kind collection of he said/she said stories where he tells it from the guy’s point of view, she tells it from the girl’s.

What happens when the hot guy from school falls for the dangerous bad chick? The gay teen looking for love online or even the girl who is never gets the guy she’s crushing on. All of these candid, raw and heartfelt narratives teach us that relationships are complicated because falling in love is never simple!

Meet Lena, a teenager who doesn’t get why her hands and feet are so gangly and long –even her own grandmother brands her as a goblin! Body hang ups aside Lena hasn’t seen her father since she was little when he disappeared to the far north in a wilderness called Scree.

There it is said that the Peculiars live, people unacceptable to modern society – people with strange and unnatural talents. On her 18th birthday Lena decides to go on a search for her father into the depths of Scree. While on board a train she meets a young librarian but as she begins to fall for his beguiling charm the train is stopped by wanted men chased down by the enigmatic and handsome Tomas Saltre. Here begins a steampunk adventure story like no other with a love triangle to die for!

Big hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe – that is until her best friends tears her reputation to shreds resulting in her independent study project getting axed! Forced to take on a more meaningful project in order to pass her penultimate year of school Chloe joins the struggling campus radio station where she teams up with a group of misfit who don’t find her all too queenly.

Readers will fall in love with Chloe in this funny story of friendship struggles and a romance that will tug on your heart strings.
