I was privileged enough to beta-read this novel as is was getting sent to publishers. I was delighted to learn that it found a home with Simon Pulse and that more readers will have the opportunity to read this wonderful book!

Slay is fresh, exciting, and perfectly placed in time when the discussion of what safe spaces are and who deserves them is taking place nationally and internationally. Hundreds of thousands of people have found a safe place in the video game Slay, and the feeling of that spa

I was lucky enough to receive a manuscript of this book and all I can say is that it while this book was slow (for me) to start, once it took off I couldn't put it down. I was held captive by the world that Brittany Morris created..both the real world and the virtual world in this book.
I don't want to spoil anything (since it doesn't come out for a while) but I will say this book will not disappoint!
Thanks to Simon & Schuster for the manuscript!!
