DARK DAYS YOUNG ADULT TOUR

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18; 7 PM @ The Greene

The Dark Days Young Adult Tour is coming with three authors!

Meet KIMBERLY DERTING with The Last Echo, a Body Finder novel. Her protagonist, Violet, has a morbid ability to uncover long-buried secrets and track down murderers. She and her team are determined to find the murderer known as “the girlfriend collector,” but romance keeps getting in the way and complicating the matter.

JILL HATHAWAY will introduce Slide, a psychological thriller that is part mystery and part romance. Vee Bell has the ability to slide into another person’s mind. She does this frequently, but nothing could prepare her when she slides into the mind of someone who is holding a bloody knife, standing over her sister’s friend Sophie’s slashed body. Then a cheerleader turns up dead, and Vee realizes that she must find a way to stop the killer before another murder occurs.

DAN WELLS will introduce Partials, his new teen series set in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by war where humans are on the brink of extinction and the key to survival rests in the hands of one 16-year-old girl. “Combining the fast-paced action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Battlestar Galactica, Partials is a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our sense of humanity is both our greatest liability, and our only hope for survival.”

His adult books include I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, and I Don’t Want to Kill.
