Look how many LJers are on the Indiebound fall list!
Shiver by m_stiefvater
"In this touching love story, Grace tries to rescue Sam -- the love of her life -- from his fate as a werewolf. But time is running out, for the next time Sam changes it will be forever. The tightly knit plot and excellent character development will envelop readers in this story." --Krisann Blake, The Bookworm, Omaha, NE

When the Whistle Blows by franslayton
"Fran Slayton's When the Whistle Blows tells the story of a railroading family in 1940s West Virginia, when steam engines were king. But the wheels of progress bring the diesel engine and, with it, the end of a way of life. This is an engaging and moving portrayal of changing times in a small mountain town." --Carol Moyer, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z. by katemessner
"Gianna's family is definitely quirky. Dad runs a funeral parlor out of the basement, mom is a health-food freak, her brother is a budding paparazzo, and Nonna doesn't remember where she's left her teeth. This is a warm and wonderful family story with a whole lot of heart." --Jennifer Laughran, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA

My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie by davidlubar
"After Abigail overhears Nathan and Mookie talking about their lousy day at school, she suggests they visit her uncle, who has concocted a secret formula that helps neutralize feelings. But due to the use of a wrong ingredient, Nathan begins to transform into a zombie! Master writer David Lubar effectively tempers sensitive topics with laugh-out-loud moments in this first of a series." --Tish Gayle, The Blue Marble, Fort Thomas, KY

Bug Boy by ericluper
“Jack is an up-and-coming jockey at the Saratoga Racetrack who will have to find a way of dealing with the unsavory underbelly of the glamorous sport in order to make it big. This great book for reluctant teen readers, set in the 1930s, has a bit of everything: history, romance, conflict, and lots of action." --Kelley Drahushuk, The Spotty Dog, Hudson, NY

The Demon's Lexicon by sarahtales
“Alan and Nick have been on the run for as long as they can remember. Their dad started running from the magicians when they were both small, but now they must protect their mother and continue to fight and flee the magicians and their demons. This fascinating fantasy explores the bonds of love in a family and shows how far we will go for the ones we love." --Antonia Squire, Kepler's Books & Magazine, Menlo Park, CA

Eyes Like Stars by lisamantchev
"This is one of the most inventive stories I have come across in a long time. Bertie lives in a theater where the casts of plays are real, bound by a magic book. This sweet and brilliant debut will have readers yearning for more." --Krys Tourtois, Schuler Books & Music, Lansing, MI

Going Bovine bylibba_bray
"Libba Bray's narrative of the surreal adventures of 16-year-old Cameron, recently diagnosed with mad cow disease, will take you everywhere -- from his pain-ridden hospital bed, to a happiness cult, to the Party House in Florida. Going Bovine is a great read for anyone ready for an adventure." --Cassie Denton, Bookshelf At Hooligan Rocks, Truckee, CA

The Stolen One by suzannecrowley
"Set during the reign of Elizabeth I, this is the story of Kat, a willful redheaded beauty in search of her true identity. Full of mystery, court intrigue, and romance, this is one of the best YA historical novels I've read in a long while!" --Hallie Wilkins, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL
