August Book of the Month: #MurderTrending

Although Summer brings to mind light fluffy contemporary novels, we've never been one to fit that mould here at YA Love. The darker the better as we're laying out in the hot sun. When I first heard about this book, I was both shocked and awe-struck. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure anything like this has ever been done before in the YA world, and I really hope it's as dark as it sounds. If you have any thoughts about this new release, we'd love to hear them.

"WELCOME TO THE NEAR FUTURE, where good and honest 8/18 citizens can enjoy watching the executions of society’s most infamous convicted felons, streaming live on The Postman app from the suburbanized prison island Alcatraz 2.0.

When eighteen-year-old Dee Guerrera wakes up in a haze, lying on the ground of a dimly lit warehouse, she realizes she’s about to be the next victim of the app. Knowing hardened criminals are getting a taste of their own medicine in this place is one thing, but Dee refuses to roll over and die for a heinous crime she didn’t commit. Can Dee and her newly formed posse, the Death Row Breakfast Club, prove she’s innocent before she ends up wrongfully murdered for the world to see? Or will The Postman’s cast of executioners kill them off one by one?
