A new decade of literature begins now. Books released this year will set the tone for what this decade in literature will look like, and I'm soooooo ready for some of these releases!

He Googles the name on her credit card, and he's in luck: only 1 Guinevere Beck shows up in NYC. Even better, Beck (as her friends call her) has a public Facebook page and a ridiculously active Twitter . . .
It's no surprise when Holden Caulfield flunks out of yet another school. Instead of going straight home to inform his parents, Holden spends a few whirlwind days around New York City calling up old friends, drinking in bars (illegally, of course), and crashing in sleazy places. Rather than face his parents, he chooses loneliness and misery, and . . .
