New Release Tuesday is a show I host on This Week in YA. Every week, I talk about new releases in the Young Adult genre. It’s a lot of fun, so I thought I’d start posting it over here to share with y’all! I link each book to their Goodreads page so you can easily add them to your To Be Read shelves!
July 31 Book Releases
Gem and her younger brother have been on their own since Gem was nine, and now that she’s sixteen, the state wants to get involved by putting her in a foster home. She also has to deal with hiding her romance with Ny’eem because her group of friends have a “no boyz allowed” to come between their friendship rule. Of course she can’t keep it a secret for long. Forbidden romances are always fun!

This is said to be Hatchet meets Lost in this tale about a girl who is involved in a plane wreck while on her way home from a mental hospital. She and a boy named Paul are the only survivors on this freakin snowed up mountain. I’m assuming there are cuddle times but also FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIIIIIVES.
Another GORGEOUS cover featuring a girl holding a Mason jar full of TORNADO! AHHH! Aunty Em, Aunty Em! Basically, her mom is an alcoholic who one day drives drunk, nearly killing Jane and her best friend. She then turns to her brother who invites her to chase tornadoes with him and his buddies. Seems to be a good self-discovery read as well as rather thrilling.
