JINXED is a Book Expo America middle grade buzz book!

Great news! Not only is the JINXED cover from Sourcebooks the best thing I’ve seen (illustrated by Vivienne To) but it’s about to hit the spotlight big time as a middle grade Buzz Book at Book Expo America next week. I’m very excited to be attending my first #BEA and I have brought an entire suitcase to fill with ARCs. The first ARCs of the US version of JINXED will be at BEA too – catch one if you can.

Here’s my schedule if you want to catch me at BEA!

May 31st
9am – signing at Sourcebooks booth (#1629)
1:35pm – Middle Grade Book Buzz Authors panel at the Downtown stage

The Golden Compass for the digital age about an engineering star whose rebuilding of her salvaged ‘smart pet’ gains her entry into an elite technology academy, where she discovers a world of competition, intrigue, and her own family’s secrets.

You can pre-order the US edition on Amazon already 🙂 It’s a bit different to the UK edition as it has been revised for a middle grade audience.


JINXED is coming to the UK/ANZ – August 2018!

JINXED is coming to the UK/ANZ in August 2018! US/Canadian readers have a bit longer to wait – January 2020 – but I’m super excited for its UK release.

‘A little bit Golden Compass, a little bit Hunger Games, and all adventure’ – Amie Kaufman, NYT bestselling author of ILLUMINAE

The brand-new series from the author of the magical POTION DIARIES adventures!

Lacey Chu has big dreams of working for the company behind the ‘baku’ – a customizable smart pet that functions as a phone but makes the perfect companion for its user. The only problem is, she’s just been rejected from Profectus Academy – the elite academy for cutting-edge tech.

Then Lacey meets Jinx… Jinx is an incredibly advanced cat baku who opens up a world that Lacey never new existed, including entry into the hallowed halls of Profectus. But what is Jinx, really? His abilities far surpass anything written into his coded. He seems to be more than just a robotic pet.

He seems … real.
