"Braden sensitively demonstrates how isolating it can be to live with people who, despite good intentions, force their children to fulfill expectations that run counter to their own senses of self. . . . All the characters find ways to encourage each other, be less alone, and connect.”—Booklist, starred review
“A touching tale of understanding and friendship . . . The message of education as a vehicle for progress and dismantling hatred is one that will strike a chord with readers.” — Kirkus Reviews
If you had to pick one word to describe Jennifer Nielsen, an excellent choice would be: Tireless. A multiple New York Times bestseller (both for The False Prince and The Mark of the Thief series), she has published 10 books in the last 6 years, and her books are beloved by legions of readers.
Today, I'm thrilled to announce a brand NEW series, which promises to once again take our reading hearts by storm! Launching in spring 2018 with The Traitor's Game, this YA series follows a privileged girl as she is taken by rebel forces and forced to seek out the one item capable of bringing down her country—only to discover that nothing is quite as it seems and that there is much more at stake than she ever imagined.
The Traitor's Game was once again acquired by Lisa Sandell at Scholastic, and will be absolutely worth the wait. Mark your calendars now!—And meanwhile, stay tuned for Jen's next upcoming stand-alone fantasy-thriller, The Scourge, which will be zooming out to shelves everywhere August 30, 2016.
Huge congrats, Jen!
