Welcome to my very first Indigo Teen Staff Pick of the Month blog post! If you’ve been following my Instagram, you might have noticed that I’ve been posting about the Indigo Teen Staff Picks since November. But I never talked about them on the blog. Well, this was originally Milana’s idea (from A Couple Reads), and she was so nice to let me try this out as well; monthly feature posts. Duh, Flavia! Why didn’t I think of this?! I’m still kicking myself, but am so grateful to Milana for thinking of this, and giving me permission to make these posts as well! Also, these posts will be going up around the beginning of each month, rather than the middle like this one. This post just went up late because I didn’t think of making these posts before, and I suck. Hahaha. Read on to see which book is this month’s Indigo Teen Staff Pick!
For those of you hearing about Indigo Teen Staff Pick of the Month for the first time, it’s a program started and run by Chapters/Indigo Books & Music Inc. where 100 staff members read a bunch of books and then choose their pick of the month! Each month’s book is announced by Chapters/Indigo at the beginning of each month (usually on the first Tuesday), and the picks are secret until then! Isn’t that exciting? Please be sure to use #IndigoStaffPicks if you share anything about this on social media, or you want to show off your own copy of whichever month’s Teen Staff Pick book in connection to this program!

– About the Book –
Author: Sara Holland
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: HarperTeen (HarperCollins)
Published: January 2, 2018
In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.
But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.
