The fourth of July has come and gone, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t feel too great celebrating America.

But, good news!

I’ve taken the colors of the star-spangled banner and twisted them in my evil mind to help you get excited for a celebration you can be proud of: the 2018 Texas Teen Book Festival.

The full author list hasn’t been released yet, but using what we know so far, I’ve created a handy guide of books you may have read that are similar to titles from the TTBF 2018 keynotes! Now, some of these book haven’t come out yet, but it’s never too early to get excited.
