Arizona author Jillian Cantor sets her new YA reverse dystopian novel, Searching for Sky, off the coast of Southern California. Sky has never known anything but the solitude of an island and the boy she has shared it with since their parents died, leaving them alone to fend for themselves. Alone, that is, until they are rescued from a place from which they didn’t realize they needed rescue. Booklist commented, “Readers will be captivated as Sky struggles to navigate her new universe, one that we know intimately but may never look at the same way again.” Jillian’s recent novel for adults, Margot, is highly recommended by Terry here and also accessible to young adults.

Teen Event | First Loves Tour | Jillian Cantor: Searching for Sky | Lindsey Leavitt: Chapel Wars | Emery Lord: Open Road Summer
Changing Hands presents three teen authors for the First Loves Tour.
In Jillian Cantor's Searching for Sky, Sky and River have always lived on Island, the only world they've ever known. Until the day River spots a boat, Sky is separated from River and forced to live with a grandmother she's just met. Here the rules for survival are different. Without River, nothing makes sense. Sky yearns for her old life where she was strong and capable, not lost and confused. She must find River so they can return to Island, but the truth behind how they ended up there in the first place will come as the biggest shock of all.
Author Lindsey Leavitt presents Chapel Wars. Sixteen-year-old Holly's grandfather leaves her his financially-strapped Las Vegas wedding chapel in his will, along with a letter asking her to reach out to Dax, the grandson of her family's mortal enemy and owner of the chapel next door, who is both cute and distracting.
Emery Lord presents her novel, Open Road Summer. Reagan O'Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind after breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own. Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, but when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence. This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking.
