Poison Princess centers on 16-year-old Evangeline "Evie" Greene, a privileged teenager from Louisiana. When an apocalyptic event decimates her hometown, killing everyone she loves, Evie realizes the hallucinations she'd been having for the past year were actually visions of the future — and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophecy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers.

Seventeen-year-old Nero's first day in the "Inward Trek" program for juvenile delinquents is filled with minor indignities. He thought he'd faced the worst of it, though: a rowdy van ride through the mountains of Northern California with the other offenders, rejection by not one, but two girls, and a dinner supplied by the army surplus. He thought the night's horror show would take the form of choking down an MRE while his counselors feasted on friend chicken. Little did he know that he'd wake up to those same counselors-turned-zombies devouring his fellow "Trekkers." Nero and the remaining survivors fight for their lives in the remote wilderness, eventually taking refuge in an abandoned lodge with their female counterparts who have faced down similar attacks from their own counselors. As a mysterious infection spreads, Nero's on the run, trying to unearth its origins, while navigating a budding romance with a female camper and dealing with a supernatural presence that's guiding his every move.

Crewel World, Book One

Farrar, Straus and Giroux BYR, 368 pages.
Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.

Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.

Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back. 

"From the publisher: Equal parts science fiction, adventure, romance, and novel of ideas, CREWEL takes place in a world where women — known as “spinsters” — are able to “weave” time, matter, and the very fabric of existence. Being selected as a spinster means power, privilege, and beauty — but it also means entering a world of secrets and lethal intrigue. CREWEL has a smart, resourceful, and rebellious heroine in 16-year-old Adelice Lewys, selected to become a spinster but gifted with a unique power that holds the key to her world’s future. It mixes elements of The Hunger Games, The Handmaid’s Tale, Elsewhere, Uglies, and Mad Men."
