From Barnes & NobleA Barnes & Noble Best Book of 2014
Teenaged Darcy Patel writes a paranormal romance novel in a 30-day haze of inspired speed-writing, then rapidly finds an agent and a publisher. The story of her entrance into the New York publishing world—rewrites, overpriced apartments, first love, figuring out how to write the elusive sequel, hanging out with a thinly veiled fictional version of John Green—is told in alternating chapters with her novel, which opens with a crackerjack scene of terrorism and semi-death at an airport, and jumps between the real world and an eerie Afterworld from there. The novel bursts with cleverness and a love of writing (and reading) that will send you straight back to the languishing manuscript draft on your own laptop. See all of the Best Teen Books of 2014.
