From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Scott
Westerfeld comes a smart, thought-provoking
novel-within-a-novel that you won't be able to put down.
This edition includes an exclusive deleted chapter!
Darcy Patel has put college on hold to publish her teen
novel, Afterworlds. With a contract in hand, she arrives in
New York City with no apartment, no friends, and all the
wrong clothes. But lucky for Darcy, she's taken under the
wings of other seasoned and fledgling writers who help her
navigate the city and the world of writing and publishing.
Over the course of a year, Darcy finishes her book, faces
critique, and falls in love.
Woven into Darcy's personal story is her novel, Afterworlds,
a suspenseful thriller about a teen who slips into the
â€śAfterworldâ€ť to survive a terrorist attack. The Afterworld
is a place between the living and the dead, and where many
unsolvedâ€”and terrifyingâ€”stories need to be reconciled. Like
Darcy, Lizzie too falls in loveâ€¦until a new threat
resurfaces, and her special gifts may not be enough to
protect those she cares about most.
