If you’re making your reading lists for this fall, you definitely want to add A Dangerous Year by Kes Trester to the list. Just take a look at this cover!

This YA debut novel sounds like equal parts boarding school mystery and spy thriller, and we are anxious to give it a read. It won’t be available until September 26, 2017, but check out the synopsis and cover below. We can’t wait to get our hands on this adventurous new novel!

About ‘A Dangerous Year’

Seventeen-year-old Riley Collins has grown up in some of the world’s most dangerous cities, learning political strategies from her ambassador dad and defensive skills from his security chief. The only thing they didn’t prepare her for: life as an American teenager.

After an incident forces her to leave her Pakistani home, Riley is recruited by the State Department to attend Harrington Academy, one of the most elite boarding schools in Connecticut. The catch: she must use her tactical skills to covertly keep an eye on Hayden Frasier, the daughter of a tech billionaire whose new code-breaking spyware has the international intelligence community in an uproar.

Disturbing signs begin to appear that Riley’s assignment wasn’t the walk in the park she’d been promised. Now, Riley must fight for her life and Hayden’s, as those around her reveal themselves to be true friends or the ultimate betrayers.

Reclaiming my Time: cutting down on Fall 2017 TV

Fall can be the most overwhelming time of year with back-to-school, work, and holiday preparations that can leave anyone desperate for a relaxing break. On top of that, keeping up with an innumerable amount of new and returning television can add to that sensation and instead rob viewers of their valuable recreation time. With that in mind, I’ve decided to drop a couple of series from my current, packed line-up of Fall 2017 TV and instead focus the series I anticipate most on a weekly basis.
