The Bone Spindle
Coming Spring 2022, Penguin / Putnam Young Readers
The prince sleeping in the Forest of Thorns has waited a hundred years for the one who will break the curse. Or so the story goes…
That’s ancient history to seventeen-year-old Fi, a treasure hunter with a knack for ruins and riddles—until she pricks her finger on a bone spindle and comes face to face with the mysterious spirit of Prince Briar Rose.
Fi never wanted a partner. Now she’s stuck with two of them: a kickass girl mercenary falling hard for a wicked witch, and a sleeping prince who’s waited a century for a kiss. Together they’ll have to break the ancient curse on the fallen kingdom of magic. Vicious Witch Hunters, perilous dark magic, and treacherous exes all stand in their way.
A genderflipped Sleeping Beauty retelling with ruins, riddles, battle axes, and snark.
