Mclean has good reason to want to be someone else. Her parents’ marriage has recently imploded in light of her mother’s affair, making it feel like life she’d known before doesn’t exist anymore. Her mom wants to her fold into her new family—complete with new house, siblings and everything else. Instead, she chooses instead to hit the road with her dad, a restaurant consultant, and begins a series of transformations. In every town and school she lands, she creates a new personality and a new name. Then, when it’s time to go, she sheds whatever girl like she is like a skin, and moves on.
But this time, in Lakeview where she already has her name picked out, it won’t be so easy to leave everything—including herself—behind.
June 21, Tuesday, 5:00 p.m.
Barnes & Noble, The Woodlands
Four Teen Authors: Courtney Allison Moulton, Leah Clifford, Lisa Desrochers, and Sophie Jordan
Special Instructions: To meet with the authors, you will need to pick up a wristband at The Woodlands store prior to the event. Wristbands will be numbered and available for pick up starting Friday, June 10.

ANGELFIRE: Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her. She has power that no one can match, and her role is to hunt and kill the reapers that prey on human souls.
A TOUCH MORTAL: Eden didn’t expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick-up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
ORIGINAL SIN: Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.
FIRELIGHT: First there are nightmares.
Every night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her, killing her.
Then come the memories.
