We’ve collected the books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending February 21, 2016–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #4 in Children’s Fiction Series) Big Nate Blasts Off by Lincoln Peirce: “Nate has a crush on Ruby.

And will the annual Mud Bowl be a blast…or a bust?” (February 2016)
(Debuted at #7 in Hardcover Fiction) Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbø: “He calls himself Ulf—as good a name as any, he thinks—and the only thing he’s looking for is a place where he won’t be found by Oslo’s most notorious drug lord: the Fisherman. He was once the Fisherman’s fixer, but after betraying him, Ulf is now the one his former boss needs fixed—which may not be a problem for a man whose criminal reach is boundless.” (February 2016)
(Debuted at #13 in Young Adult) I Was Here by Gayle Forman: “When her best friend, Meg, commits suicide by drinking a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how did she miss the signs of Meg’s depression? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her.” (January 2015)
