Westerfeld Introduces Afterworlds
I'm predicting that Afterworlds will be the must-read book of fall. The author, Scott Westerfeld, already has a large following for his UGLIES series and LEVIATHAN trilogy. Plus, it's a story-within-a-story, so it's a genre mash-up. But mostly it highlights the awesome YA authors living and working in NYC. And everyone seems to be obsessed with YA lit these days. Including me. And including you. Here's a sneak peek:
In alternating chapters, eighteen-year-old Darcy Patel navigates the New York City publishing world and Lizzie, the heroine of Darcy's novel, slips into the "Afterworld" to survive a terrorist attack and becomes a spirit guide, as both face many challenges and both fall in love.
