Melissa Albert in conversation with Veronica Roth "The Bad Ones"

Best-selling YA author and friend of The Book Cellar, Melissa Albert will be celebrating her newest novel The Bad Ones. She will be joined in conversation by our very own local author, Veronica Roth! The Book Cellar is thrilled to be hosting these two beloved authors again!

About the Book:

Goddess, goddess, count to five
In the morning, who’s alive?

In the course of a single winter’s night, four people vanish without a trace across a small town.

Nora’s estranged best friend, Becca, is one of the lost. As Nora tries to untangle the truth of Becca’s disappearance, she discovers a darkness in her town’s past, as well as a string of coded messages Becca left for her to unravel. These clues lead Nora to a piece of local lore: a legendary goddess of forgotten origins who played a role in Nora and Becca’s own childhood games. . . .

An arresting, crossover horror fantasy threaded with dark magic, THE BAD ONES is a poison-pen love letter to semi-toxic best friendship, the occult power of childhood play and artistic creation, and the razor-thin line between make-believe and belief.
