Lindsey Leavitt, You're the Best.

Recently, we had the adorable Lindsey Leavitt out as a guest. Not only is she super nice but she's also willing to partake in totally silly videos as the request of NYMBC. So thanks, Lindsey! You're a good sport, and a great author!

Flip by Martyn Bedford

Flip Usually, waking up on the wrong side of the bed just means a cruddy day. But for 14yr old Alex, it means waking up a whole different person. With a whole different life. Though he's still Alex on the inside, he now lives inside the body of a boy called Flip (short for Phillip) who's cooler, taller, better looking (even better endowed!) than Alex was previously. And while living in Flip's body does have its advantages, like making out with pretty girls who would have otherwise completely ignored him, Alex cannot let go of his previous self. Alex makes for an entirely relatable and sympathetic main character, even though his predicament is so otherworldly.

Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard

Out today is the debut novel from Kirsten Hubbard, LIKE MANDARIN. Set in small town Washokey, Wyoming, Like Mandarin stars Grace, an intelligent and highly introverted high schooler who's been skipped up a year, making her first year of high school her sophomore year. As if that didn't make her enough of an outsider, she's also so quiet, almost nobody notices she's there. Except, it turns out, Mandarin Ramey. Mandarin is everything Grace wishes she could be; reckless, glamourous and sexy. But as her friendship with Mandarin escalates at an alarming pace, Grace starts to learn that Mandarin is perhaps not as care-free as she likes to come across.
