Romancing the Dark in the City of Light
My debut young adult thriller is coming fall 2015
from Thomas Dunne Books/Griffin, St. Martin's Press/Macmillan
Troubled, eighteen-year-old, American Summer Barnes is flunking out of school in Paris where she's torn between a charismatic guy who encourages her to embrace life, and another – hot, dark, and dangerous – who wants to convince her to choose death.
"Many-layered Paris is the ideal setting for Ann Jacobus's vivid portrayal of a girl in love with love and death. The story flows from the real to the surreal with all the gritty glamour of a black and white French Film." Richard Peck--Newbery Medal winner and National Book Award Finalist
"One kiss could save her, the other could destroy her, but which one does she deserve? Seductive, unexpected, and emotionally complex, Summer's story will take you from the darkest corners of Paris to the haunted depths of the human heart. A perfect pick for fans of We Were Liars or I'll Give You The Sun." Catherine Linka, author of A Girl Called Fearless
