Fresh Out of the Box

A young adult title made it onto our latest Fresh Out of the Box picks list. Its cover was rather attention-grabbing as we unpacked our delivery of new books.

Kyla is a teen terrorist who's memory has been erased, or slated, to give her a fresh second chance in Teri Terry's Slated. Her second chance is also her last chance, like others who have been slated, Kyla wears a monitoring bracelet with the ability to kill her if she gets too angry or violent. Plagued by nightmares, Kyla has to face the realization that all is not as it seems, and risk her life to find the truth.

Our non-fiction pick was chosen based solely on its title. Ship It Holla Ballas! by Jonathan Grotenstein and Storms Reback details how the journey of a bunch of college dropouts as they won millions at the poker table. From the cover: "This is the twisted and incredible true story of the rise and fall of Internet poker, seen through the eyes of its most unlikely stars: teenage college dropouts, united by social media, who bluffed their way to the top of the game."
