  • The end of summer is in sight and here at Quirk Books we’re in deep deep denial about it. To celebrate these last warm days, here are some of our favorite young adult books with summer in the title. So grab a beach towel and your favorite sunglasses because these books need to be soaked up in the sun.

  • It's BEA & BookCon week, folks! And we couldn't be more honored to share the show floor with you! Come by our booth (#3250) this week, so we can hang out with our totes out!

    Check our author signings and book drop schedule below for optimal booth drive-bys.

    Children don’t come with an owner’s manual, so Raising Quirk brings together advice, activities, entertainment, and, most important, other parents who still feel kinda like kids themselves. Our motto: We help cool parents raise cool kids. After all, parenting is a lifelong adventure, and we’re all in it together. Consider us your virtual playgroup and join us at Raising Quirk online.
