I've got a new title

All, or almost all, of my adult books have kept their titles.

Not so my YAs.

Point & Shoot became Shock Point (because marketing feared librarians would think it was about school violence)

Fire, Kiss, Electric Chair became Torched (Electric Chair was deemed too off-putting)

and now

Shadows Walking Backward (too literary sounding?) is going to be Girl, Stolen. Look for it in the fall of 2010 from Holt. According to Lulu's Title Scorer, it has a 35.9% chance of being a bestseller.
