What the cheesecake is SP Library? You may have noticed that we've rolled out some new changes at YA Stands. SP Library is a feature I'm doing twice a month, showcasing Small Press and Self Published books. Ideally, I'll do one of each a month for fairness.
I wanted my first post in the series to be a SP book that I've read and loved. To give you an idea how I felt about this book, I finished the book...and tweet-begged the author to write a sequel. No shame, right?
So I chose:
Mythology by Helen Boswell
Hope Gentry doesn’t believe in Fate. Born with an unusual power to see the dark memories of those around her, Hope just wants to be a normal teenager. But on the first day of her senior year of high school, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a transfer student named Micah Condie. At first glance, Micah seems like a boy that most girls would dream about. But when Hope's powers allow her to discover Micah's darkest secret, she quickly becomes entangled in the lives of mythical entities she never dreamed existed. Was this her destiny all along? And will her powers help her survive the evil of the Demon Impiorum?
Mythology isn’t just for English class anymore.
Helen Boswell is originally from upstate New York. She obtained her Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from the University at Buffalo and currently teaches biology at Southern Utah University. She enjoys playing with her two little boys, camping, gardening, eating large bowls of ice cream after the kids go to bed, and hanging out on the couch with her husband to watch Breaking Bad, Louis CK, and Wilfred -- and of course, writing.
Have you read Mythology? What did you think?
