A Very Special Misfit first!

You guys. YOU GUYS. We have a some very awesome news here at YAMF! A *very* special Misfit first!

BECAUSE GUESS WHAT.


Our very own Misfit Maggie SOLD HER BOOK. TO PUTNAM/PENGUIN. IN A THREE-BOOK DEAL.




Do you want to know just how awesome it is? This is THE ELITE's blurb:
Sixteen-year-old Avery West's newfound family can shut down Prada at the Champs-Elysees when they want to shop in peace, and can just as easily order a bombing when they want to start a war. They are part of a powerful and dangerous secret society called the Elite, and they think Avery is the key to an ancient prophecy. Now some of the Elite want to use her as a pawn. Some want her dead. 
To unravel the mystery putting her life in danger, Avery must follow a trail of clues from the crypts of Paris to the back alleys of Istanbul with two boys who work for the Elite—beautiful, volatile Stellan and mysterious, magnetic Jack. But just as the clues expose a stunning conspiracy that might plunge the world into World War 3, Avery discovers that both boys have secrets of their own. Now she has to choose not only between freedom and family—but between the boy who might help her save the world and the one she’s falling in love with.


I had the privilege of reading THE ELITE multiple times and I did not doubt it would sell pretttttty much immediately. Because seriously? It's just THAT good. Guys who own half the world (including private jets to get there!)? Characters who travel all through Europe? That alone would have made me love it. But it's SO much more than that! The Elite families are just as dangerous and intriguing as they sound. The characters are unique and fantastic. And OMG the action and the tension. It's one of those very rare books I read again immediately after finishing it, because I could. not. get. enough.

(AND NOW THERE WILL BE A TRILOGY. ALLOW ME TO RUN AROUND SCREAMING.)

And AVERY. *This* is how I feel about Avery -->

Avery is a fantastic, kick-ass MC who is thrown in a LOT of intense situations and holds her own against everything.

Plus, you know, Stellan and Jack don't hinder either. But for all that I only rarely like main characters, Avery stole my heart and ran with it.

I can't wait for the rest of the world to get to know her too! :)

Mags, I'm SO overjoyed to see all your hard work paid off. Love you and TE loads!! <3

Congratulate Maggie here and add THE ELITE to your Goodreads shelves here!

And now... we do the DANCE OF JOY!



(Confession: I'm not very good with gifs unless it's fandoms I know. So. I GPOYed the fuck out of them. Hope you don't mind, Mags! <3)
