From an impressive sisterhood of YA writers comes an edge-of-your-seat anthology of historical fiction and fantasy featuring a diverse array of daring heroines.

Criss-cross America — on dogsleds and ships, stagecoaches and trains — from pirate ships off the coast of the Carolinas to the peace, love, and protests of 1960s Chicago. Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.

« Bo, dix-sept ans, a toujours cru qu'il possédait la capacité de voyager dans le temps. Quand il avait dix ans, Bo a affirmé avoir été témoin du naufrage du Titanic et, à quinze ans, il s'est dit être sur un des champs de bataille de la Guerre de Sécession, horrifié par les corps qui l'entouraient. Alors, quand ses parents, inquiets, l'envoient dans un institut pour les jeunes en difficulté, Bo présume qu'il connait la vérité : il pense qu'il se rend en fait à Berkshire Academy, une école pour les jeune qui, comme Bo, ont des "super-pouvoirs".

À Berkshire, Bo tombe amoureux de Sofia, une fille discrète au passé douloureux et qui est dotée du pouvoir d'invisibilité. Sofia aide Bo à s'ouvrir comme jamais auparavant. De son côté, Bo procure une sensation de sécurité à Sofia qui a perdu sa mère et ses deux sœurs quand elle était très jeune.

Mais même la force de leur amour n'est pas assez pour aider Sofia à échapper à sa dépression. Après qu'elle se soit suicidée, Bo est convaincu qu'elle n'est pas vraiment morte. Il croit qu'elle est coincée quelque part dans le temps et qu'il l'a laissée, d'une manière ou d'une autre, dans le passé et que son rôle et désormais de la sauver. »

Taking place on the spaceship Godspeed before Amy Martin wakes up and Elder takes leadership, this novella describes life at the Hospital during Eldest's reign. Focusing primarily on background characters, readers will see fan-favorite characters Harley, Orion, Victria, and more.

Selene is a singer on a spaceship that only values people who can provide important skills that enhance survival. As her friends--fellow "loons" in the Hospital--start to join apprenticeships to turn their skills into valuable labor, Selene is sent with a handful of other students to learn about the importance of art from the Recorder, Orion. The assignment pairs her with a young sculptor, Luthor, and their dangerous romance proves just how terrifying living trapped on a spaceship under the rule of a heartless dictator could be.

This tragic tale explores the background of a previously unknown character, linking the history of the ship and its residents to Amy and Elder, giving depth to the world of Godspeed.

The world is gone, destroyed by human, ecological, or supernatural causes. Survivors dodge chemical warfare and cruel gods; they travel the reaches of space and inhabit underground caverns. Their enemies are disease, corrupt corporations, and one another; their resources are few, and their courage is tested.

It took only twenty-two minutes for Kirby Matheson to exit his car, march onto school grounds, enter the gymnasium, and open fire, killing six and injuring five others.

But this isn't a story about the shooting itself. This isn't about recounting that one unforgettable day.

This is about Kirby and how one boy—who had friends, enjoyed reading, played saxophone in the band, and had never been in trouble before—became a monster capable of entering his school with a loaded gun and firing on his classmates.

Each chapter is told from a different victim's viewpoint, giving insight into who Kirby was and who he'd become. Some are sweet, some are dark; some are seemingly unrelated, about fights or first kisses or late-night parties.

This is a book of perspectives—with one character and one event drawing them all together—from the minds of some of YA's most recognizable names.
