Euphoria by Lily King

Euphoria is an IndieNext pick for June. Publishers Weekly and Kirkus both gave Euphoria a starred review. Our own Elizabeth Schieber reviewed it, which means you’re welcome to steal any of our words. King is very active on Twitter and Facebook, and has a helpful website. This video is labeled a trailer, but it’s really a nice interview with King. Share it if you want to get readers excited about Euphoria.
