My family seems to be perfect from the outside looking in. We have the big house, the money for things, the million-dollar-smiles… but nothing is ever as it seems.
We’re plastic. We’re fake. So fake, in fact, that we hide the little things about us, we hide everything about us, to be more specific. My dad does things he isn’t supposed to, and my mom is taking it hard. My brother has a full ride to any college of his choice, and he’s blowing it away like it’s nothing at all.
So what would happen if someone found out about us? If they saw through our little charade? If they looked past the kitchen curtains that hide every conversation my parents have with each other? What if we were exposed for who we really are, instead of who everyone thinks we are?

About the Author
K. Weikel uses her three-dimensional characters to tell stories of life and adventure and magic. She's been writing since she could hold a pencil, and creating worlds to fall in love with even longer than that, putting on plays and concerts for her family with her cousins and siblings, and even reading her stories aloud to the class in elementary school. Weikel pushes her brain to its limits and beyond with her mind-bending stories and the epic forces of nature held between pages and laced across words. She doesn't write pointless tales to entertain, but she writes stories of life and lessons, and she yearns for her readers to learn something through another's eyes. "Foolishness brings joy to one without sense, but a man with understanding walks a straight path." The One-Hundred won the Wattys Award in 2015 and has reached over two million reads, and grows more and more each day. Weikel has also won the 2017 Writers Awards for Building Monsters. She is currently writing her thirtieth book: The One (Book 5 of The One-Hundred Series), and is excited to have been able to write that many in such a short amount of time. Weikel is reediting all of her books in celebration of this while creating new covers for each of them. To find out more, visit her website: kweikel.com
