Julie Berry - whose first YA Fantasy, The Amaranth Enchantment, was a Junior Library Guild selection, will be releasing her latest title, Secondhand Charm, on October 12. Evie's parents are gone and she lives with her Grandfather. She has just finished school but wants more than anything to continue studying and be a physician like her parents --and she has reason to think she would be good at it since she has some surprising healing powers. When she gets a scholarship she excitedly leaves her small town accompanied by her best friend and the handsome boy next door. But it's not a smooth trip. Ahead for Evie are some very scary experiences and some serious questions about loyalty...not to mention romance.

This is a very exciting page turner - young readers who enjoyed Harry Potter with his special powers will find Evie's quite intriguing.

(and if you wonder how I read it in advance, Julie Berry will be introducing this book at an event at our local library (Maynard, MA) on Oct 12.)
