Join the Penguin Young Readers Program

Space Rocks!   Nightingale's Nest

Thanks to all of  you have asked for a children’s and YA version of our popular Penguin First Flights program, we are  delighted to announce the launch of the Penguin Young Readers Author Program— an opportunity to be part of the launch of major new YA and middle grade titles.

Sign up to automatically receive advance readers copies (in print or via NetGalley) of new titles.

A few weeks later, you will be invited to an exclusive live online chat with the author, led by EarlyWord Kids Correspondent, Lisa Von Drasek.

The first title in the program is Space Rocks!, a middle grade title by comedy writer Tom O’Donnell. Kirkus is the first to review it, saying the main character is “charming and [the book’s] alien perspective on the human invaders and the ensuing culture clash never falters.”

The second title in the program is Nightingale’s Nest, by Nikki Loftin, the author of The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy.

Many thanks to our sponsor, Penguin Young Readers. Sign up here.

    Would love advance copies, and I am willing to post reviews. As a Middle-School Librarian, I am eager to keep up with the latest and best books!

    I am a teacher librarian for grades 7 and 8 so I am interested in books appropriate for middle school, especially YA books. I do regularly review new books on my book blog.

    I’d gladly post reviews if supplied with ARC’s! I love sharing new books with my students who are always excited to hear of new books and especially series books. I cater to students 4th through 8th grades.
