ABOUT THE BOOK
Charity Jones is a 16-year-old engineering genius who’s much-bullied for being biracial and a skeptic at her conservative school in Oak County, California. Everything changes when Charity’s social worker mother brings home a sweet teen runaway named Aidan to foster for the holidays. Matched in every way, Charity and Aidan quickly fall in love. But it seems he’s not the only new arrival: Charity soon finds the brutally slain corpse of her worst bully and she gets hard, haunting evidence that the killer is stalking Oak County. As she and her Skeptics Club investigate this death and others, they find at every turn the mystery only grows darker and more deadly. One thing’s for certain: there’s a bloody battle coming this holiday season that will change their lives – and human history – forever.
Will they be ready?
Find out this 2016 holiday season how Charity, you, me, everyone…has been Snowed.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT SNOWED
“Sorry Katniss and Bella… Charity is the hero I’ve been waiting for. She is sharp, fierce, loyal, and not afraid to let her brain move in concert with her heart. If bodies started dropping in my neighborhood, she’s who I’d want by my side.”
—Lilla Zuckerman Writer / Producer Marvel’s Agents of Shield, Fringe

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
"I wrote this book in part because I felt it was important for girls to be inspired by STEM, to see how it can be as big a part of their heart and imagination as any other discipline in life. Young women need role models in both books and movies. The protagonist, Charity Jones, is kickass not just because of her intelligence, but because she's not afraid to be who she is." —Maria Alexander, Author of Snowed
