priest-iamprincessxCherie Priest’s I Am Princess X was named one of Publishers Weekly’s best YA books for summer. 

Part comic, part novel, and packed with emotion and adventure, Priest’s story follows 16-year-old Seattle resident May as she tries to discover whether her childhood friend Libby, who died in a car accident, might still be alive. How else to explain the comics popping up online and around town that feature Princess X, a character the two girls created? It’s a fast-paced yet thoughtful thriller, and Ciesemier’s comics sequences both ground the story and amp up the excitement.
