mood: excitedpandora/ipod: "word crimes" by weird al yankovic
As you may know, GET EVEN - which hits shelves on September 16, 2014 - is the first in the Don't Get Mad series, and the sequel, GET DIRTY, is scheduled to come out just nine months later, in June 2015.
Here's what people are saying about GET EVEN:
"The suspense that McNeil (Ten) builds should keep readers curious to discover what happens next." (Publishers Weekly)
"A compelling contemporary thriller." (Kirkus)
"McNeil concocts every private school's worst nightmare...the mystery McNeil creates will engage readers." (Romantic Times)
"GET EVEN expertly mixes suspense and snark, proving once again that Gretchen McNeil is a master of the teen thriller." (Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, founders of Go Fug Yourself)
"Don’t get mad, get reading this wild ride filled with twists and turns, revenge and romance, suspense and Shakespeare. I can’t wait to see what Gretchen McNeil comes up with next." (Elizabeth Eulberg, author of Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality)
"A revenge story with murder, mayhem, and Gretchen McNeil’s signature snark? Yes please! Gretchen proves once and for all that revenge is a dish best served deadly. Readers will be immediately sucked into the dangerously intriguing world of DGM and by the end they’ll be dying for the sequel." (Jessica Brody, bestselling author of The Unremembered Trilogy and The Karma Club)
"GET EVEN is an edge-of-your-seat, sink-your-teeth-into-it mystery -- filled with vivid, intriguing characters, set against the ruthless landscape of a modern high school. I’m dying for the next book!"(Katie Alender, author of the Bad Girls Don't Die series)
Exciting, right? And, if you'll notice, the theme "dying for the sequel" popped up quite a few times. So...
Why two chapters? Because a huge, massive, game-changing plot twist is dropped in the very last line of Chapter 2.
The chapters will be printed up in a signed, special edition booklet, along some GET EVEN bonus material and a signed Don't Get Mad bookplate.
"Gretchen, how can I get my hands on all this awesomeness?"
