From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Atlas Six comes Twelfth Knight, a grumpy/sunshine YA romantic comedy and coming of age story. Featuring gorgeous inside cover artwork.

Viola and Jack do not get along.

Popular Jack Orsino is the worst Student Body President Viola Reyes has ever seen, and his lackadaisical attitude is just one more thing on Vi’s long list of things to be annoyed about.

Her only escape? The online role-playing game Twelfth Knight – where she creates a masculine alter-ego in order to be taken seriously in the gaming world.

When a football injury leads Jack to start playing Twelfth Knight too, their two worlds are set to collide. And as it becomes increasingly difficult for Vi to hide her true identity, Jack might just be falling for her offline . . .
