Tu Books, the new publisher I’ve been following that plans to focus on multicultural children’s and YA genre fiction, has bought:
- a “YA paranormal thriller” by Joseph Bruchac, author of Code Talker, whose description involves a “black-ops father” and an “abandoned, monster-guarded mansion.”
- “Galaxy Games by Greg Fishbone, a MG science fiction trilogy about an incoming asteroid that turns out to be an alien spaceship, visiting Earth to recruit a team of kid athletes to compete in the upcoming Galaxy Games Tournament.”
If I taught boys or liked these sorts of things myself, I would be excited. As it is, I’m underwhelmed. At least neither book appears to involve making out with a werewolf.
