The Dead Queens Club
If your school's homecoming king had a little too much in common with Henry VIII, would you survive with your head still attached? You'd think being the new girl in a tiny town would equal one very boring senior year. But if you're me--Annie Marck, alias Cleves--and you accidentally transform into teenage royalty by entering Lancaster High on the arm of the king himself? Life becomes the exact opposite of boring. Henry has it all: he's the jock, the genius and the brooding bad boy all in one. Which sort of explains why he's on his sixth girlfriend in two years. What it doesn't explain is why two of them--two of us--are dead. My best friend thinks it's Henry's fault, which is obviously ridiculous. My nemesis says we shouldn't talk about it, which is straight-up sketchy. But as the resident nosy new girl, I'm determined to find out what really happened to Lancaster's dead queens...ideally before history repeats itself.

"A clever, irresistible twist on history that you'll want to follow to the end. I was rooting hard for Cleves the whole time, but I have to admit I also fell for Henry. I loved this book!"--Cynthia Hand, New York Times bestselling author of My Lady Jane "A fun, fresh twist on Henry VIII! Full of snark, laughs, and a whole lot of heart... Hannah Capin has a witty new voice that's sure to make heads roll."--Whitney Gardner, award-winning author of You're Welcome, Universe "Witty narrator Cleves is a feminist force, lambasting slut-shaming and calling out her female classmates' internalized misogyny."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "The Dead Queens Club isn't just a fun book--it's brilliant."--NPR.org "Clever nods to English history are woven throughout this teen drama...a crafty, compelling debut."--Booklist
