So I felt kind of guilty about making this video/post because I’ve already made a TTT list on the topic. But then I found some more debuts I’m really looking forward to, so I decided to make a list with 5 more.
These authors made these descriptions themselves on Twitter, because Nori made an amazing #2017debut thread.
Fat Girl on a Plane by Kelly DeVos // Fall 2017 // “Plus-size teen feels like she needs to lose weight for her fashion career, learns to love herself instead.” #bodypositivity? Hell yes.
27 Hours by Tristina Wright // October 3rd 2017 // “queer teens in space”
Ahimsa by Supriya Kelkar // 2017? // “10-year-old girl in 1942 India whose mother joins Ghandi’s freedom movement.” This was in the thread of 2017 debuts, but Goodreads says it’ll be published in 2018? There’s no specific date though.
The Breaking Light by Heather Hanson // April 1st 2017 // “YA SF gender switched Romeo and Juliet.”
