Description

“Seasoned storyteller Colleen Oakes and vibrant newcomer Erin Armknecht have crafted a breathless, beautiful story of magic and sisterhood. Teen readers will be pulled along by a thread of urgency that culminates in a thrilling conclusion. Sister of the Chosen One is not just about being super. It’s about choosing—and what it means to be chosen by the ones who matter.” Brianna Shrum, author of The Liar’s Guide to the Night Sky

Best described as Harry Potter meets Mindy Kaling, Sister of the Chosen One is a darkly funny, female empowered, YA epic about siblings struggling to connect with each other, free themselves of labels, and save the world in the process.

Valora Rigmore understands pressure. As the Chosen One (resident telekinetic, superstar, and model girlfriend) her life revolves around it. According to an ancient prophesy, Valora is destined to fight Erys, a terrifying individual with the power to control monsters. Valora is worshipped at school, in the press, and by her parents, but as the battle with Erys looms near, the cracks in her perfect façade are beginning to show.

Her twin, Grier Rigmore, understands disappointment. A curvy bookworm perpetually in the shadow of her sister’s legacy, Grier’s life is one long humiliation after another. However, as Valora’s fandom reaches an unbearable fever pitch, an interesting new boy and a clever teacher spark Grier’s curiosity about her own powerful gifts.

When Grier’s star begins to rise, so do more questions, like who is truly the Chosen One, and will two sisters at odds survive long enough to understand the answer?
