Greetings and salutations,

Happy holiday season!  I’m celebrating with these shiny new covers for my books with David Levithan.  Hope you like!

NE DL NN

A movie of Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List has been made, starring Victoria Justice and Pierson Fode, and I will post here when release date information becomes available. Here they are:

NE movie 2 NE movie 1

And, it’s official:  Beta book 2: Emergent is now available!

In a world constructed to absolute perfection, imperfection is difficult to understand—and impossible to hide.

Elysia is a clone, created in a laboratory, born as a sixteen year old girl, an empty vessel with no life experience to draw from. She is a Beta, an experimental model of teenaged clone. She was replicated from another teenage girl, who had to die in order for Elysia to be created.

Elysia’s purpose is to serve the inhabitants of Demesne, an island paradise for the wealthiest people on earth. Everything about Demesne is bioengineered for perfection. Even the air there induces a strange, euphoric high that only the island’s workers—soulless clones like Elysia—are immune to.

At first, Elysia’s new life on this island paradise is idyllic and pampered. But she soon sees that Demesne’s human residents, the most privileged people in the world who should want for nothing, yearn. And, she comes to realize that beneath its flawless exterior, there is an undercurrent of discontent amongst Demesne’s worker clones. She knows she is soulless and cannot feel and should not care—so why are overpowering sensations clouding Elysia’s mind?

If anyone discovers that Elysia isn’t the unfeeling clone she must pretend to be, she will suffer a fate too terrible to imagine. When Elysia’s one chance at happiness is ripped away from her with breathtaking cruelty, emotions she’s always had but never understood are unleashed. As rage, terror, and desire threaten to overwhelm her, Elysia must find the will to survive.

Please check out this coverage in the Entertainment Weekly Shelf Life blog, the LA Times and the NY Times.  Read about my inspirations for Beta and other questions on these blogs here and here. I hope you enjoy the books!

Happy reading, as always, and thanks for stopping by!

Cheers,

Rachel
