Daughter of Deep Silence

So let me take a break from all the middle grade, The Map to Everywhere news for some other exciting news: I have a new young adult novel coming out this summer!  And I finally get to share more information about it!

First, the title: Daughter of Deep Silence

Next, the pitch: A delicious tale of revenge and identity from Carrie Ryan, the bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth

The release date: June 2, 2015

And finally, the description:


In the wake of the deadly devastation of luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace, rescued from the ocean after torturous days adrift with her dying friend Libby, knows that the Persephone wasn’t sunk by a rogue wave as survivors Senator Wells and his son are claiming—it was attacked.

To ensure her safety from the obviously dangerous and very powerful Wells family, Libby’s father helps newly orphaned Frances assume Libby’s identity. Frances has spent years in hiding, transforming herself into Libby, and she can no longer allow the people who murdered her entire family and Libby to get away with it. After years of careful plotting, she’s ready to set her revenge plans into motion—even if it means taking down the boy she’d once been in love with: the senator’s son.

The game has just begun, and Frances is not only playing dirty, she’s playing to win.


I feel like I want to add in an ominous, "dun dun dun!" (if you'd like an actual sound effect, try this).

As of right now, there aren't any pre-order links available, but they should be live shortly (and I'll update this post when they are).  But since the announcement was going live today, I wanted to scoop the info here first :)  In the meantime, you can find more information on the Penguin website here.

Some additional answers to questions you may or may not be asking:

- This is one of the books I sold to Julie Strauss-Gabel at Dutton last year -- back then it was titled Turnabout (the original announcement is here).

- It's a young adult romantic thriller -- nary a zombie or paranormal creature in sight!

- It's also a stand-alone.  

- I've seen the cover mock-up and it's gorgeous!

- Erm... am I forgetting anything? If so, let me know if the comments!

Yay for being able to share such fun news!! I'm excited!!
