Tempe | Teen Event | Fierce Reads Tour | Marie Rutkoski, Lindsay Smith, Katie Finn, and Lynn Matson
Changing Hands Bookstore, Thursday, May 14 at 7pm
7PM THURSDAY, MAY 14 "Fierce Reads Tour" featuring Marie Rutkoski, Lindsay Smith, Katie Finn and Lynn Matson LOCATION: TEMPE

This year's Fierce Reads tour visits Changing Hands Tempe with four YA authors — Marie Rutkoski, Lindsay Smith, Katie Finn and Lynn Matson.

Marie Rutkoski presents the second book in her Winner's series, The Winner's Crime. The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria's crown prince is the event of a lifetime, but to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As she aches to tell the truth about her engagement, she becomes a skilled practitioner of deceit, a spy that passes information and gets ever closer to uncovering a shocking secret.

Lindsay Smith visits with the sequel to Secret, Skandal. Yulia and Valentine have escaped Russia to live in Washington, D.C. where they work with CIA psychics, including Yulia's increasingly erratic father.

Kate Finn presents another installment of her Broken Hearts and Revenge series, Revenge, Ice Cream, and Other Things Best Served Cold. Gemma and Hallie find themselves locked in an escalating revenge cycle involving everything from strawberry syrup to stolen identities. But just when Gemma thinks she has the upper hand, the biggest bombshell of all is dropped. And it's one that threatens to change her life forever.

Lynne Matson shares the next installment of her survival-thriller Nil series, Nil Unlocked. On the island of Nil, you have exactly 365 days to escape — or you die. Seventeen-year-old Charley doesn't know the rules. She doesn't even know where she is. The last thing she remembers is blacking out, and when she wakes up, she's naked in an empty rock field. Lost and alone, Charley finds no sign of other people until she meets Thad, the gorgeous leader of a clan of teenage refugees. Soon Charley learns that leaving the island is harder than she thought . . . and so is falling in love. With Thad's time running out, Charley realizes that she has to find a way to beat the clock, and quickly.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS Marie Rutkoski is a professor of English literature at Brooklyn College. She specializes in Renaissance drama, children's literature, and creative writing. She lives in New York City.

Lindsay Smith'S love of Russian culture has taken her to Moscow, St. Petersburg, and a reindeer festival in the middle of Siberia. She writes on foreign affairs and lives in Washington, D.C.

Katie Finn is the author of the Top 8 trilogy. She's never plotted revenge on anyone (who didn't deserve it) but has been known to assume another identity. She's also acclaimed author Morgan Matson (Amy and Roger's Epic Detour). She lives in Los Angeles, in a house she wishes was a lot closer to the beach.

Lynne Matson grew up in Georgia in a house full of books and a backyard full of gnarly pines. She attended the University of Florida, where she met and married her husband, the cutest boy she's ever seen. Now, Lynne is mother to four amazing boys. After a career as an attorney, Lynne is thrilled to be making her debut in YA fiction.
