Book Launch “All of Our Demise” by Amanda Foody & Christine Lynn Herman

Join Books of Wonder for this thrilling launch party — celebrating Ryan La Sala’s third fabulous YA, The Honeysy!

The Honeys promises an unforgettable reading experience that teen readers are certain to devour! Join us for this special Launch Party with Ryan La Sala, featuring Signed & Personalized copies at Books of Wonder!

Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow of his sister Caroline’s radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who’d grown tragically distant.

Mars’s genderfluidity means he’s often excluded from his politically-connected family’s traditions — and expectations. This includes attendance at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy, where his sister poured so much of her time. But with his grief still fresh, he insists on attending in her place — and to his surprise, his family agrees.

What Mars finds is a fairytale not meant for him. Folksy charm and sun-drenched festivities camouflage the school’s old-fashioned gender roles, and a toxic preparatory rigor. Mars seeks out his sister’s old friends: a group of girls dubbed the Honeys, named for the beehives they maintain behind their cabin. They are beautiful and terrifying — and Mars is certain they’re connected to Caroline’s death...
