We're proud to introduce you to the first three books in our exciting new YA series: Single Voice. We were fortunate to have a number of talented book bloggers agree to help us launch the series by each reviewing one of the stories. Please visit their blogs for full reviews!

Steph Bowe reviews The Pool Was Empty on her blog Hey! Teenager of the Year and writes, "I know the story did a great job of engaging me, since I was left wanting more ..." Krista at Up the Tower of Books enjoyed Nothing but Your Skin, which she described as "a simple, yet powerful love story."

Vasilly posted that she "just plowed through" Just Julie and concludes, "With the story so interesting, I’m sure young adult reluctant readers would gobble this book--and the rest of the series--up." Of I Am Not Emmanuelle, Cindy from Cindy's Love of Books said she loved the concept: "I think this would make a great gift for young adults to know they aren't alone or going through it on their own."

Sarah from GreenBeanTeenQueen reviewed Descent Into Paradise and called it "a powerful short story and one that could start a great discussion." The Book Muncher tackled A Place to Live, in which a teen student stands up to his principal's overly strict rules by starting a unique film project that "delves into the emotions of his school, raw and real, and will force everyone to realize that school is not just a place to work, but a place to live."

For more information on the series, please visit the Single Voice website for short excerpts from each of the books, reviews, and more! And now I'll leave you with this book trailer, which perfectly captures the essence of these short, powerful reads:
