Leigh Bardugo has proven herself in the field of YA: Both books in her most recent series, Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times best seller list, and her Grisha trilogy was a best seller before that, as well.


“This story has been haunting me since I first set foot in New Haven almost twenty years ago,” Bardugo — a Yale alum herself and also former member of a secret society on campus, says in a statement. “I love writing or young adults and I intend to keep doing it, but there are different places I want to go with this novel. It isn’t a coming of age story. Alex has lived a lot of lives before we meet her.”

No publication date has yet been announced.
