HVYAS Book of the Month

WE ARE THE WILDCATSWe Are the Wildcats

by Siobhan Vivian

"I absolutely loved this unique story about 24 intense hours in the lives of a girls' field hockey team. Vivian's masterful storytelling brings out the intensity of friendships  & power dynamics among the players - you will care deeply about these girls!" — Suzanna

A toxic coach finds himself outplayed by the high school girls on his team in this deeply suspenseful novel, which unspools over twenty-four hours through six diverse perspectives.

A testament to the strength and resilience of modern teenage girls, We Are the Wildcats will have readers cheering.

Siobhan Vivian is the author of the young adult novel We Are the Wildcats, as well as Stay SweetThe Last Boy and Girl in the WorldThe ListNot That Kind of Girl, Same DifferenceA Little Friendly Advice, and the Burn for Burn trilogy, cowritten with Jenny Han. A former editor for Alloy Entertainment, she received her MFA in creative writing at the New School. She teaches creative writing at the University of Pittsburgh. Visit her at SiobhanVivian.com.
