From PW: “Aidan Chambers’s Dance Sequence, six novels with shared themes (though not characters) debuted 30 years ago with the publication of Breaktime. This month, Amulet Books is releasing paperback reissues of this young adult novel, as well as the second installment, Dance on My Grave. The publisher will reissue the third and fourth books, Now I Know and The Toll Bridge, in spring 2009.”
Chambers’ early work was the topic of my dissertation. I’m thrilled to
see those books come back into print in the US. Dance on My Grave and Breaktime remain my favorites. Get your hands on these, folks. The Dance sequence may be the finest series of novels ever written for young adults.
