Michelle Merrill, author of CHANGING FATE, a YA novel about battling cystic fibrosis, is releasing her second book today! This new one is about genies, which is amusing because Michelle and I are critique partners and a few years ago we both wrote genie novels without knowing the other was doing it. And now we’re releasing them just one week apart (my YA, BOTTLED, releases next week on July 7!). Let's help Michelle celebrate the book birthday of GRANTED!!
The existence of genies may be the best kept secret in the history of the world.
being trapped in the Sahara Desert her whole life, sixteen-year-old
genie Brielle finally gets her first assignment in Tri-Cities,
Washington. She eagerly heads out into the human world to grant her
first wish so she can gain her magic. Unfortunately, her assigned human,
Addie, gave up believing in wishes years ago and would much rather
everyone just leave her alone.
Complicating everything is Rock,
Brielle’s childhood friend turned enemy. Brielle doesn’t need him
ruining her first trip out into the human world. Too bad she can’t keep
her mind--or her eyes--off him and his annoyingly cute dimples.
make matters worse, genies in the Tri-Cities area are suspiciously
dying. One broken lamp could be an accident, but after three, Brielle
suspects someone has uncovered the genies’ secret and is slowly killing
them off one by one. With the Genie Council ignoring the threat, Brielle
desperately needs to gain her magic so she can stop the murderer before
she—or Rock—is the next genie to die.
