Maureen Johnson & Stephanie Perkins - Chills & Thrills
Maureen Johnson continues the unnerving creepiness (we mean that in a good sense) of her Shades of London series in The Madness Underneath when she visits Saturday, March 2, at 3 p.m. Her Edgar-nominated The Name of the Star was a fresh look at Jack the Ripper in modern-day London. Now teen Rory Devereaux is back: back in London, back with the secret 'police' that hunts ghosts, and back with new powers. Ages 14+.
Also, Stephanie Perkins visits with her realistic fiction on young relationships (Anna and the French Kiss; Lola and the Boy Next Door). Fans of Sarah Dessen will enjoy her well-regarded novels of love and acceptance.

The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a
new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders
breaks out over the city, killings mimicking the horrific Jack the
Ripper spree of more than a century ago. Soon "Rippermania" takes hold
of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no
witnesses. Except one.
Stephanie Perkins visits with her realistic fiction on young relationships (Anna and the French Kiss; Lola and the Boy Next Door). Fans of Sarah Dessen will enjoy her well-regarded novels of love and acceptance.
