Fierce Reads Tour with Cecelia Ahern, Kami Garcia, Harriet Reuter Hapgood, Marie Rutkoski, and moderator Alyssa Rosenberg — at Bethesda Library **FOR TEENS AND ADULTS

Monday, May 9, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The Fierce Reads Tour brings together four authors with new young adult novels about strong girls in tough situations. Cecelia Ahern’s Flawed (Feiwel & Friends, $18.99) introduces the reader to Celestine North, who lives in a society that demands perfection from all its citizens. This has never been an issue for rule-follower Celestine, but a moment of compassion for a man who has been literally branded as Flawed leads to her being put on trial and condemned to an unprecedented punishment. In Kami Garcia’s The Lovely Reckless (Imprint, $18.99), Frankie mourns her boyfriend’s death as lashes out in a way that forces her to move in with her undercover cop dad in a dangerous part of town. This leads her to street racer Marco and a romance more complicated—and dangerous—than she ever could have imagined. Gottie Oppenheimer of The Square Root of Summer (Roaring Brook, $17.99) by Harriet Reuter Hapgood is mourning multiple losses: the long-ago move of her best friend Thomas to Canada as well as the more recent death of her grandfather and demise of her relationship with Jason. When the universe begins to unravel, she falls into wormholes and re-experiences these seminal moments as past, present, and future collide. In the final installment of Marie Rutkoski’s Winner’s Trilogy, The Winner’s Kiss (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $17.99), Arin and Kestrel are separated. As Arin fights in the new war against the Empire, he rages against Kestrel and her prioritization of the Empire over innocent lives. What he doesn’t realize is that Kestrel may be more loyal to him than he thinks—with disastrous consequences. Ages 15 and up
