About the Book:
In a time of kings, queens, and conspiracy, it's impossible to know who one can trust...

In a kingdom far away and long ago, it was prophesied at her birth that the queen would die before her sixteenth birthday. So Shadow, an orphan girl the same age as the young queen, was given the duty to watch her every move. And as prophesies do tend to come true, the queen is poisoned days before her birthday. When the castle is thrown into chaos, Shadow escapes with a young knight, whom she believes was betrothed to the queen.

Unsure of why she is following Sir Kenway, but determined to escape as far as possible from the castle, her long-time prison, Shadow sets off on an adventure with the handsome knight who has been charged with protecting her. As mystery builds, and romantic tension does, too, Shadow begins to wonder what her role in the kingdom truly is. Soon, she learns, it is up to her to save her land.

Jenny Moss's novel is a lyrical, fast-paced adventure filled with mystery, magic, honor, and romance that will lead readers on an incredible journey.

with a special thing to do.

One by one, the days of the week roll by. Monday is one day. Tuesday's blue shoes day. Wednesday's halfway day. With monster roars and splashy puddles, with crazy ties and hugs, kids and perents count the perfect small moments of their weekday time together, looking forward to the weekend, when the days will be all theirs.

AUTHOR TOUR: Meg Cabot, Abandon

9780545284103_sm[1] #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot is touring to promote the first book in her newest trilogy for teens: Abandon, a dark, fantastical story about this world...and the underworld.

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone...because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.

Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away ...especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

Praise for Meg Cabot:

“Cabot shows the dark side behind the bling-blingy superficial worlds.” —Teenreads.com

"[The] strong, amusing voice, the plot twists, and the possibility of romance will draw mystery and chick-lit readers alike." —ALA Booklist

“Bag the tiara and get out the gun ... Cabot delivers.” —Publishers Weekly
