Kimberly McCreight is the New York Times bestselling author of Reconstructing Amelia, which was nominated for an Edgar Award for Best First Novel as well as an Alex Award, and was called Entertainment Weekly‘s Favorite Book of the Year, and has also been optioned for film by HBO and Nicole Kidman’s Blossom Films. She is also the author of Where They Found Her (2015). In her new novel OUTLIERS it all starts with a text: Please, Wylie, I need your help. Wylie hasn’t heard from Cassie in over a week, not since their last fight. But that doesn’t matter. Cassie’s in trouble, so Wylie decides to do what she has done so many times before: save her best friend from herself.

Marie Rutkoski's latest novel THE WINNER'S KISS is final book in the Winners trilogy. War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people―and certainly more than she did for him. At least, that’s what he thinks.

Kara Thomas' is the author of the Prep School Confidential series. In her new novel THE DARKEST CORNERS, there are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.

Catherine Egan  is the author of The Last Days of Tian Di trilogy. In her new novel (the first book in a stunning trilogy) - JULIA VANISHES - Julia has the unusual ability to be . . . unseen. Not invisible, exactly. Just beyond most people's senses. It's a dangerous trait in a city that has banned all forms of magic and drowns witches in public Cleansings. But it's a useful trait for a thief and a spy. And Julia has learned--crime pays. Murder, thievery, witchcraft, and betrayal--fans of Marie Lu, Leigh Bardugo, and Kristin Cashore take note!
