The first thing Christine does when she's getting ready to read a book is to crack the spine in at least five places. She wholeheartedly believes there is no place as comfy as the pages of a well-worn book. She's addicted to buying books, reading books, and writing books. She even turned her dining room into a library—reading is more important than eating. She also has a weakness for adventure and inappropriate humor. Christine is from Forest Hill, Maryland where she lives with her husband, three kids, and her library of ugly spine books.

Hi Ella!
Yes, there will be a third book in the Sophisticates series. I intend for the series to be a trilogy so the next book will be the last one. I'm writing the third book now and hope to have it published by next summer. If you follow me on my social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) you'll see updates when I'm ready to publish. Thanks for reading! If you send me your mailing address, I'll send out some Deviation and Conviction bookmarks to you. Email your address to christine@christinemanzari.com. Thanks for contacting me!(less)

Epic. Loved this so much. I listened the the audio book and was always tying to find ways to sneak off and listen to it because I loved it so much. I love how Sabaa makes you root for everyone at the same time even though they’re enemies.

“The girl may have been tiny, but everything about her said, I'm not scared of you, so piss off.
Christine Manzari, Deviation

“SQUATS, Clementine! And don't stop until class is over. You legs look like they'd snap under the weight of a sack of flour. How do you walk around on those things?"
"I don't know, Professor. One foot in front of the other, I guess.”

“Well don't get your hopes up," I warned. "I'm a lot more trouble than i'm worth."
"I don't doubt that," he said, indicating my box of junk.
"What did you do to get sent here?"
"I can't tell you."
"Because then you'd have to kill me.”
