Today we're excited to spotlight I Do Not Trst You by Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz. Read on for more about Laura and Melinda and their book, plus an excerpt, and giveaway! 

 

 

Meet Laura J. Burns!  

Laura J. Burns has written more than forty books for kids and teens, touching on topics from imaginary lake monsters to out-of-control Hollywood starlets (they have more in common than you might think). With Melinda Metz, she has also written for the TV shows ROSWELL, 1-800- MISSING, and THE DEAD ZONE. Laura lives in New York with her husband, her kids, and way too many pets. 

 
 
 
Meet Melinda Metz! 
 

Melinda Metz is the author of over 75 books for kids and teens, including the Roswell Highseries, basis of the TV show Roswell. She often teams up with the lovely and talented Laura J. Burns; together they wrote the Edgar Award nominee Wright and Wong: Case of the Nana-Napper, and YA thrillers Sanctuary Bay and the upcoming The Lost Map of Secrets and Chaos. Melinda's first adult book, Talk to The Paw, which launches a series, comes out in February 2018. She lives in North Carolina with her dog, Scully, who isn't as well-behaved as her namesake. 

 
 
Meet I Do Not Trust You!
 
 

Memphis "M" Engel is stubborn to a fault, graced with an almost absurd knowledge of long lost languages and cultures, and a heck of an opponent in a fight. In short: she's awesome.

Ashwin “Ash” Sood is a little too posh for M's tastes, a little too good looking, and has way too many secrets. He desperately wants the ancient map M inherited from her archeologist father, believing it will lead him to a relic with the power to destroy the world. M obviously can't trust him.

Equally desperate to find the relic for reasons of her own, M forms an uneasy partnership with Ash. From the catacombs of Paris, to a sacred forest in Norway, to the ruins of a submerged temple in Egypt, together they crisscross the globe in their search. But through it all, M can never be sure: Is she traveling with a friend or enemy?

With Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz's signature plot twists, and uneasy, ever-changing alliances, I Do Not Trust You is a thrilling journey at every turn that asks—what would you do to save the ones you love?
