Embark on an enchanting journey through Amulet Book’s exciting Fall 2014 young adult fiction list. In this ebook sampler, you’ll see the winsome threesome from the Internet Girls series go off to college, the most unlikely of British friends experience the trials of high school, and a glamorous adventure featuring New York and Holly Golightly. On the darker side of Amulet Books, you’ll read an alternate history of an isolated frontier settlement and a gothic horror in which a young suffragette is hypnotized into seeing people’s monstrous true natures. Finally, you’ll learn about the devastating sorrow—and the vibrant hope—that followed the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
