The upcoming novel Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz is very exciting — because it's the first book in Seventeen magazine's brand new imprint! So if you can catch de la Cruz on the Something in Between book tour, you're in for a real treat. Get ready, we've got the dates right here!
Melissa de la Cruz's book tour kicks off on October 4 in California — and she's going to be joined by Kami Garcia, who co-wrote Beautiful Creatures , and Lauren Oliver, author of the Delirium series at the first event. The launch event will be held at a Barnes & Noble in Huntington Beach — and with all three of these exciting authors in attendance promoting their brand new books (Garcia is promoting The Lovely Reckless and Oliver is promoting Replica ), I bet it's going to be a full house.
De la Cruz has already written a number of books, including the bestselling The Beauchamp Family series, later adapted for television as The Witches of East End . But this latest novel sounds like the most exciting yet. Something in Between tells the story of Jasmine de los Santos — a high school student who has always been pretty, popular, hard-working, and basically perfect. But just as she's about to receive the full college scholarship she always deserved, her Filipino immigrant parents reveal that their visas are long-expired, meaning the whole family is at risk of being deported. When Jasmine's college dreams fly out the window, she finally rebels — breaking all the rules she stuck to as a teenager. And then she meets the handsome Royce...
Something in Between will be released on Oct. 4, so make sure to get your hands on it then — and if you're lucky enough to live in one of the states de la Cruz is visiting, you need to go along (and you might just get to meet Kami Garcia and Lauren Oliver too!).
