Mark your calendars: On June 2, best-selling author Carrie Ryan is returning to YA with a Revenge-esque thriller titled Daughter of Deep Silence. EW‘s got an exclusive first look at the cover (above).
“Daughter of Deep Silence is a revenge thriller and a romance, but it’s also a sharp and painful examination of identity,” Julie Strauss-Gabel, Vice President and Publisher of Dutton Books tells EW exclusively. “What does it mean to rebuild your life as a lie? How much is left of the awkward, shy-girl narrator Libby has cast off and buried away in anger?”
Here’s the official 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 song 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.”
