To make this already-exciting event more exciting still, this is going to be a joint book launch party with my friends Jocelyn Davies (author of A BEAUTIFUL DARK) and Anne Heltzel (author of CIRCLE NINE). I’m lucky to have so many talented friends who have YA novels coming out the same month as mine.
Today is the paperback pub date for Mostly Good Girls! That means you can walk into a real live bookstore and purchase a real live paperback copy of my book for NINE DOLLARS AND NINETY NINE CENTS, which is LESS than it was in hardcover!
FURTHERMORE, the paperback edition of Mostly Good Girls includes a teaser chapter from Past Perfect, which isn’t even out until October.
FINALLY, the paperback looks adorable on a bookshelf. And I should know, because I have about ten copies on my bookshelf right now.

PAST PERFECT goes on sale exactly one month from today! Although I’m not doing a proper tour, I am doing a couple events near my home, and near my mom’s home. In other words, if you come to my Massachusetts book release event, you will get to meet my mom.
NYC: At 6pm on Wednesday, October 5, at the Jefferson Market Library in New York City, I will be reading from PAST PERFECT as part of a Teen Author Reading Night (which will also include Jocelyn Davies and Anne Heltzel). This event is free and open to the public. More details here.
Boston: At 2pm on Sunday, October 9, at Brookline Booksmith in Brookline, Massachusetts, I will be doing a release event for PAST PERFECT. This event is free and open to the public. More details here.
More events to come, hopefully. I would love to see you at either or both! (Probably not both. Unless you are my stalker. Or, possibly, my mom.)
