New Imprints, Improved Covers, & Real Subjects: Melissa de la Cruz Visit Kepler's (Event Recap + GIVEAWAY)

#SomethingInBetween | October 5th 2016 

Melissa de la Cruz joined fans at the most gorgeous library in the Bay!

Sometimes Kepler's has adult events that take over the store and we have to trek to one of the local libraries. For Melissa de la Cruz, the Redwood Shores library rolled out the red carpet and we all fawned over the fact that the library is set on a small body of water, complete with wildlife.

Our Blogging Desk for the Day

If you didn't already know, Something In Between is Melissa's latest YA book from a new imprint under the Seventeen label. Seventeen's imprint is focused on publishing books that target issues that teens face. Melissa shared that she was asked to write their first book, a book about a girl who finds out she is an undocumented immigrant right as she is headed off to college on a full scholarship.


We also found out a bit of what Melissa is up to next. Not only is she authoring another book under the same imprint, but fan favorite  The Ring and the Crown is getting a repackage in hopes of drumming up enough support to get the long awaited sequel published.

  3. My favorite realistic fiction book has to be Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall. All because Norah, the main character, IS ME. The character just.. resonates to me so much over her anxiety and depression, inability to leave the house, always fighting her own mind and demons, wanting relationships but never letting anyone close. If given a chance it needs to be read when it comes out next year!!

  6. My favourite realistic fiction is Girl Online On Tour. It deals with anxiety and panic attacks so it's so relatable and I loved it! :)

  7. Oh so hard to pick but I'll have to go with Cut by Patricia Cormick with Crank by Ellen Hopkins as a close second. Both of those books changed my life growing up and are def. all time favs.

  8. Forgive me, but this is the first that I've heard the term, "realistic fiction." Assuming it is what it sounds like, I love the book, "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena."
