Featured Trailer: The Tiara On The Terrace by Kristen Kittscher + Giveaway (US Only)

Happy December, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the trailer for THE TIARA ON THE TERRACE by Kristen Kittscher, releasing January 5, 2016 from HarperCollins. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Kristen:

 
Hi, YABC!
 
When this hilarious secret footage for a marketing meeting for The Tiara on the Terrace leaked, Vroman’s bookseller Josh Crute helped me gather the lemons and make lemonade! Or should I say cake? (You’ll see…)
 
But in all seriousness: I am so excited to share this little digital short with you – and even more excited to sharing Young & Yang’s spy hijinks in The Tiara on the Terrace on January 5. I’m so proud of this book! 

~ Kristen Kittscher (THE TIARA ON THE TERRACE, HarperCollins)

About the Book

 

In this funny, clever novel, perfect for fans of Pseudonymous Bosch and Gordon Korman and a companion to The Wig in the Window, tween sleuths Sophie Young and Grace Yang go undercover at Luna Vista's Winter Sun Festival to catch a murderer before he—or she—strikes again.

Sophie Young and Grace Yang have been taking it easy ever since they solved the biggest crime Luna Vista had ever seen. But things might get interesting again now that everyone is gearing up for the 125th annual Winter Sun Festival—a town tradition that involves floats, a parade, and a Royal Court made up of local high school girls.

When Festival president Jim Steptoe turns up dead on the first day of parade preparations, the police blame a malfunctioning giant s'more feature on the campfire-themed float. But the two sleuths are convinced the mysterious death wasn't an accident.

Young and Yang must trade their high tops for high heels and infiltrate the Royal Court to solve the case. But if they fail, they might just be the next victims.
