Out Today: GYPSY by @trishaleighKC

You guys! I’m SO excited. Today is the release day for GYPSY (The Cavy files) by the amazing Trisha Leigh.

I have a special place in my heart for this book. A few months ago, Trisha asked if I’d read it and provide a blurb if I liked it. This was the first time I’d been asked to blurb as an author and talk about an honor! I’ve been a HUGE fan of Trisha’s forever, and for her to ask me to read and blurb pretty much made my year.

Of course there’s always the worry that you won’t like the book, but OMG you guys. I couldn’t put this one down. I fell in love with Gypsy, and the world that Trisha built. Her writing is absolutely gorgeous, and I ended staying up all night so I could finish it. I’m waiting desperately for the next book now!

This is what I had to say about it:

“Smart, suspenseful, and full of amazing science, I fell in love with Gypsy from the first page. The constant threat of danger, the hint of romance, and the mysterious backdrop of Charleston hit all the right notes. I devoured this book, desperate to uncover the secrets behind the Cavies and their strange abilities. Gypsy is the kind of YA Sci-fi I love, with believable characters, fantastic relationships, and a plot that kept me turning the pages well into the night. Trisha Leigh has written one of my favorite books of 2014 and I can’t wait to see what happens to Gypsy and the other Cavies next!”


So – in honor of release week, Trisha has priced GYPSY at .99 cents for the week. This is a freaking STEAL. If you like romance, sci-fi, or basically amazing books, GET THIS ONE NOW.

You can thank me later.

In the world of genetic mutation, Gypsy’s talent of knowing a person’s age of death is considered a failure. Her peers, the other Cavies, have powers that range from curdling a blood still in the vein to being able to overhear a conversation taking place three miles away, but when they’re taken from the sanctuary where they grew up and forced into the real world, Gypsy, with her all-but-invisible gift, is the one with the advantage.

The only one who’s safe, if the world finds out what they can do.

When the Cavies are attacked and inoculated with an unidentified virus, that illusion is shattered. Whatever was attached to the virus causes their abilities to change. Grow. In some cases, to escape their control.

Gypsy dreamed of normal high school, normal friends, a normal life, for years. Instead, the Cavies are sucked under a sea of government intrigue, weaponized genetic mutation, and crushing secrets that will reframe everything they’ve ever been told about how their “talents” came to be in the first place.

When they find out one of their own has been appropriated by the government, mistreated and forced to run dangerous missions, their desire for information becomes a pressing need. With only a series of guesses about their origins, the path to the truth becomes quickly littered with friends, enemies, and in the end, the Cavies ability to trust anyone at all.
