THE FORGOTTEN MEMORIES OF VERA GLASS
Vera has a nagging feeling that she’s forgetting something. Not her keys or her homework—something bigger. Or someone.
When she discovers her best friend Riven is experiencing the same strange feeling, they set out on a mission to uncover what’s going on. Everyone in Vera's world has a special ability—a little bit of magic that helps them through the day. Perhaps someone’s ability is interfering with their memory? Or is something altering their very reality? Vera and Riven intend to fix it and get back whatever or whomever they’ve lost. But how do you find the truth when you can’t even remember what you’re looking for in the first place? The Forgotten Memories of Vera Glass is a cleverly constructed, heartbreaking, and compelling contemporary YA novel—with a slight fantasy twist—about memory, love, grief, and the invisible bonds that tie us to each other.
Coming November 9, 2021 from Abrams Amulet Books.

FAN THE FAME
Lainey has made a huge mistake. Lugging a camera around a video game convention for her mega-famous brother, aka YouTube streamer Codemeister, sounded easy—but it’s a nightmare. Because her brother might be funny and charming online, but around his friends, he’s everything she hates: a sexist jerk.
SamTheBrave came to this year’s Legends of the Stone con with one mission: meeting Codemeister. Code is exactly what Sam wants to be—and getting his attention could be the big break Sam needs.
ShadowWillow has worked her butt off to be invited to sit on her first-ever panel, but half her fans are only interested in shipping her with Code. Shadow can’t stand always being a girl first, a gamer second. Unless she can turn the rumors to her advantage.
Millions of fans see Code as a superstar, but when Lainey catches one of his hateful rants on video, the drama levels up. Because she’s determined to teach her brother a lesson—even if it puts Sam and Shadow in the crosshairs.

KAT AND MEG CONQUER THE WORLD
KAT and MEG couldn’t be more different.
Meg hates being alone, but her ADHD keeps pushing people away. Friends. Her boyfriend. Even the stepfather who raised her.
But when the two girls are thrown together for a year-long science project, they discover they do have one thing in common: their obsession with the online gaming star LumberLegs and his hilarious videos.
Meg’s pretty sure this is fate. Kat doesn’t know how to deal with someone who talks faster than she thinks. But if they can stick together and stay out of their heads, they might figure out how to help each other—and build the kind of friendship Kat never knew she wanted and Meg never believed she’d find.
