New books entering the limelight that promise to pick up the slack and carry YA genre fiction forward include Soman Chainani's The School of Good and Evil, a fairy-tale, switcheroo story at face value, but with stellar reviews for inventive storytelling with sales everywhere breaking the roof.
Another sci-fi thriller that has been tagged a YA book, The Girl with All the Gifts has received a Twitter blurb from no less than Joss Whedon, creator of YA classic Scooby-gang horror: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, calling the book: a perfect read--this horror sci-fi zombie novel by comic book scribe M.R. Carey is also being adapted for a film to be released in the next two years. Once the movies hit big, they'll recharge the YA book market for fairy tale retellings and sci-fi horror all over again.
