About Get Even: The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars in Gretchen McNeil’s witty and suspenseful novel about four disparate girls who join forces to take revenge on high school bullies and create dangerous enemies for themselves in the process.
Bree, Olivia, Kitty, and Margot have nothing in common—at least that’s what they’d like the students and administrators of their elite private school to think. The girls have different goals, different friends, and different lives, but they share one very big secret: They’re all members of Don’t Get Mad, a secret society that anonymously takes revenge on the school’s bullies, mean girls, and tyrannical teachers.
When their latest target ends up dead with a blood-soaked “DGM” card in his hands, the girls realize that they’re not as anonymous as they thought—and that someone now wants revenge on them. Soon the clues are piling up, the police are closing in . . . and everyone has something to lose.
About Gretchen McNeil: Author of YA horror novels Possess, Ten, and 3:59, as well as the new mystery/suspense series Don’t Get Mad, beginning in 2014 with Get Even and continuing in 2015 with Get Dirty, all with Balzer + Bray for HarperCollins. Gretchen also contributed an essay to the Dear Teen Me anthology from Zest Books.
Gretchen is a former coloratura soprano, the voice of Mary on G4′s Code Monkeys and she sings with the LA-based circus troupe Cirque Berzerk. Gretchen blogs with The Enchanted Inkpot and was a founding member of the vlog group the YARebels. She is repped by Ginger Clark of Curtis Brown, Ltd.
About Blackbird: From the author of the Eve trilogy comes the breathless story of a girl racing to figure out who she is—and how to stay alive. When a nameless girl wakes up on the subway tracks, she knows only one thing for sure: people want her dead. Can she find them before they track her down? This pulse-pounding contemporary thriller is perfect for fans of The Maze Runner, The Darkest Minds, and Legend.
About Anna Carey: Anna Carey is the author of The Eve Trilogy, a post-apocalyptic adventure story set in the not so distant future. Her new contemporary thriller Blackbird is the first of a two part series. The sequel, Deadfall, will be released Spring 2015. Both series have been optioned by Warner Brothers, and together they will be published in over fifteen languages. She studied creative writing at NYU and has an MFA in fiction from Brooklyn College. When she’s not writing she’s reading, hiking, traveling or telling elaborate, only moderately interesting stories about her dog.
