Imaginary Friend The Beautiful The Gallows Pole Nothing to See Here 

9781538731338 Imaginary Friend 10/1/2019
"Immediately compelling, Imaginary Friend has the grip of those timeless cautionary tales, but related through a child's genuine sense of wonder and apprehension. Real-deal darkness, just peaking around the edges of the rich prose and Mayberry-esque setting.." -- Jilleen Moore, Square Books, Oxford, MS

9781524738174 The Beautiful 10/8/2019
"Ahdieh sets her gritty underworld in the perfect environment of New Orleans in the late 19th century. It's dark and dramatic and filled with intense passion. Ahdieh drew me in and left me so frustrated. I need the next book. NOW. This is the YA fantasy you need in your life right now."-- Miriam Meeks, E Shaver, bookseller, Savannah, GA

9780997457858 The Gallows Pole 10/15/2019
"A grimy, visceral historical crime novel with prose that feel like they were written with a sledge hammer. Entertaining, yes, but with plenty to say about power and class." -- Justin Souther, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Asheville, NC

9780062913463 Nothing to See Here 10/29/2019
"I don't think I've read something so absurd and equally endearing ever before in my life. Kevin Wilson serves us a tale spun around heartbreak, what it means to be family, and honest to God unconditional love. When Lillian's childhood friend, Madison, calls her with a job to be the governess to her step-children, the deal sounds too good to be true. But once Lillian meets Bessie and Roland, she learns exactly what her job is: keep the kids from catching on fire, at (quite literally) all costs. The sweetness of this story is fragrant with smoke and sweet tea, and Wilson leaves the reader feeling completely satisfied and fulfilled by the entirety of Lillian's story involving this twisted and fantastical family." -- Delany Holcomb, Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC
