The World of Tomorrow (Little, Brown, Sept. 5) by Brendan Mathews
Set against the 1939 New York World’s Fair, Mathews’ debut, about three brothers caught up in blackmail and betrayal, made a splash at the May 31-June 2 BookExpo and is drawing comparisons to Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay.
Genuine Fraud (Delacorte, Sept. 5) by E. Lockhart
Another BookExpo hit, the follow-up to 2014’s best-selling We Were Liars (under development with Imperative) is a YA Talented Mr. Ripley-esque story that skips around in time and hopscotches among beautiful locales in Mexico, New York and California.
