Winter is a slow time in publishing, but that doesn't mean there aren't great books for teens coming out in all genres. Readers can relive the civil rights era twice, once with Lynda Blackmon Lowery, the youngest participant in the march from Selma to Montgomery, and again with SNCC leader (and current U.S. Rep.) John Lewis. They can survive the Haitian earthquake, discover what it's like to live with a devil in your basement, explore Indiana and fall in love, and take a characteristically mind-bending literary journey with Printz winner Marcus Sedgwick. Who needs to leave the house with books like this to read?
