Carolrhoda Lab

About the Imprint

Carolrhoda LabCarolrhoda Lab™ is dedicated to distinctive, provocative, boundary-pushing fiction for teens and their sympathizers. Carolrhoda Lab probes and examines the young-adult condition one novel at a time, affording YA authors and readers an opportunity to explore and experiment with thoughts, ideas, and paradigms in the human condition. Adolescence is an experience we share and a condition from which some of us never quite recover. All of us at Carolrhoda Lab are proud to proclaim our lifelong adolescence and our commitment to publishing exceptional fiction about the teenage experience.


Note from the Editor

Dear YA aficionado,

More than forty years ago, Carolrhoda Books was born out of a deep commitment to publishing exceptional books for children. In that same spirit, we are starting Carolrhoda Lab™ as an imprint within the imprint, a home for what we believe are exciting, surprising, dramatic, and boundary-pushing works of young-adult fiction. When you think of Carolrhoda Lab, I hope you will come to expect experimentation and drama (and perhaps the odd explosion) from new and familiar authors.


Andrew Karre, editorial director, on behalf of the entire Carolrhoda Books team
