New fiction selections are starting to arrive in the library. One exciting new series to check out is Monument 14, by Emily Laybourne. Here's what the reviewers are saying:
"...a combination survival and apocalyptic story.”—VOYA
"...a real thriller…”—Booklist
“…Laybourne’s debut ably turns what could have been yet another postapocalyptic YA novel into a tense, claustrophobic, and fast-paced thriller.”—Publishers Weekly, starred
"...intriguing beyond the survival elements..."—Horn Book
"...readers will eagerly await the second volume. "—Kirkus
"Concise, clear, and riveting. A cliff-hanger ending leaves readers devastated but breathlessly awaiting the sequel. A stellar addition to any collection." — School Library Journal
The New York Times Book Review
Laybourne's strong characterizations of the resourceful, optimistic children who make up this improvised family intensify the horror of the situation and make the almost cartoonish series of catastrophes frighteningly real.
