The Book Cats Return: What to Look Forward to in 2013 YA

BEA - Book Expo America is a weekend where publishers, book stores and librarians all descend on a giant convention center and talk about what are the biggest books for the year! Every May we are so excited to find out what's coming down the pipeline in the rest of the year. Our YA buyer, the lovely and amazing Librarian M (am I flattering because I want dibs on these books?? maybe) just returned and she's got a sneak peek at some of the biggest books for the rest of the year. And just like last year, her cats have been kind enough to act as models.
