Lucy Keating

ISBN 9780062380050

From the author of Dreamology comes a young adult love story that blurs the line between reality and fiction...
Annabelle's life has always been Perfect with a capital P. Then bestselling young adult author Lucy Keating announces that she's writing a new novel-and Annabelle is the heroine.
It turns out that Annabelle is a character that Lucy Keating created. And Lucy has a plan for her.
But Annabelle doesn't want to live a life where everything she does is already plotted out. Will she find a way to write her own story-or will Lucy Keating have the last word?
The real Lucy Keating's delightful contemporary romance is the perfect follow-up for readers who loved her debut novel, which School Library Journal called "a sweet, quirky romance with appealing characters." 

The Author

lucy keatingLucy Keating lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She grew up in Boston and attended Williams College in the Berkshires, before spending many years in New York, LA and San Francisco. California will always be in her heart. When she's not writing, Lucy can usually be found obsessing over the latest music, inventing new flavours of ice cream, or having what she feels are perfectly acceptable conversations with her dog, Ernie. Lucy's first YA novel, Dreamology, was published by HarperTeen in April 2016. Dreamology is about a girl named Alice who has spent her life dreaming about the same boy, Max. Together they have travelled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. There's just one problem - Max doesn't actually exist. Until Alice moves to Boston and finds him sitting next to her at school... very much alive and real.
