<b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b> Bestseller</b><br /><br />What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. <i>Crazy Rich Asians</i> meets <i>The Crown</i>. Perfect for fans of <i>Red, White, and Royal Blue</i> and <i>The Royal We</i>!</b><br /><br />Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. <br />Two girls vying for the prince's heart. <br />This is the story of the American royals.<br /><br />When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American.<br /><br />As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture <i>his</i> heart.<br /><br />The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. <i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded--and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history.<br /><br />"The lives of the American royal family will hook you in the very first pages and never let go. Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive." --Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars and Perfectionists series

<p><b>The Instant <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller!</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>A speculative thriller in the vein of <i>The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale </i>and <i>The Power</i>. Optioned by Universal and Elizabeth Banks to be a major motion picture!</b></p><p><b>鈥淎 visceral, darkly haunting fever dream of a novel and an absolute page-turner. Liggett鈥檚 deeply suspenseful book brilliantly explores the high cost of a misogynistic world that denies women power and does it with a heart-in-your-throat, action-driven story that鈥檚 equal parts horror-laden fairy tale, survival story, romance, and resistance manifesto. I couldn鈥檛 stop reading.鈥?鈥?Libba Bray, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author</b></p><p><b>Survive the year.</b><br /><b></b><br />No one speaks of the grace year.

That鈥檚 why they鈥檙e banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive. </p><p>Sixteen-year-old Tierney James dreams of a better life鈥攁 society that doesn鈥檛 pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it鈥檚 not just the brutal elements they must fear. It鈥檚 not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. Their greatest threat may very well be each other. </p><p>With sharp prose and gritty realism, <i>The Grace Year</i> examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.</p>
