Family of Liars (Prequel to We Were Liars) (2022)
by E Lockhart

If you haven't read We Were Liars yet, I highly recommend it. In particular, I LOVED the audiobook version narrated by Ariadne Meyers. Once you finish We Were Liars, you will immediately want to dive into Family of Liars. Adults, I think you would also be totally hooked on these books by E. Lockhart.








My Own Lightning (Sequel to Wolf Hollow), (2022)
by Lauren Wolk



It is a great idea to read 2019 Newbery winner Wolf Hollow before reading My Own Lightning. Please enjoy an episode of Fan Faceoff where my NY librarian pal Stacey Rattner and award-winning author Steve Sheinkin pair an author and a huge fan to answer questions about the author's book.  In this episode, author Lauren Wolk challenges sixth-grade super fan Mercy from Missouri. Stacey is always looking for the next super fan so let me know if there is a recent book you've loved and I'll let her know!
