YA fiction is hot: think Harry Potter, the Hunger Games. Think Wonder.

And now, you can think, "Until We End," by Athens resident Frankie Brown, one of the local bookselling staff at Avid Bookshop. This is Frankie's first published book, so come to Avid on Thursday at 6:30 to celebrate with her. Also celebrating will be Ashley Poston, another YA author.

Fighting their way back home, Cora finds her house ransacked and Coby missing – kidnapped by the military for dangerous medical experiments in the name of a cure. Brooks knows exactly where Cora can find her brother, except it’s a suicide mission. Cora doesn’t care. But Brooks can’t let her go…
