A girl realizes her life is being written for her in this unique, smart love story that is Stranger Than Fiction for fans of Stephanie Perkins.

Annabelle’s life has always been Perfect with a capital P. Then bestselling young adult author Lucy Keating announces that she’s writing a new novel—and Annabelle is the heroine.

It turns out, Annabelle is a character that Lucy Keating created. And Lucy has a plan for her.

But Annabelle doesn’t want to live a life where everything she does is already plotted out. Will she find a way to write her own story—or will Lucy Keating have the last word?

The real Lucy Keating’s delightful contemporary romance blurs the line between reality and fiction, and is the perfect follow-up for readers who loved her debut Dreamology, which SLJ called, “a sweet, quirky romance with appealing characters.”

    To sum it up, this was the weirdest plot I've ever read in a book. Weird to the point where it was hard for me to wrap my head around it. It is unique to read about an author meeting her character and...

    When you have an amazing concept like an author existing in her own book, manipulating the main character from within the pages, you could do so much. SO much. Adventure, intrigue, excitement. If you ...
