Set in New York, the novel follows the adventures of ex-con Dick, who comes round from what feels like quite a bender to find that there's a corpse in the boot of his Oldsmobile. It's Dot, recently his boss on the Breakout Program and also his on/off girlfriend. That's bad enough, but Dick honestly doesn't know whether he shot her himself or whether someone else did it. Meanwhile Dot's friend Lydia is wondering what the hell has happened to her co-conspirator - they've been embezzling the company and they're due to fly to Nassau with the proceeds shortly. And if Dick needed any more bad news, Dot's former squeeze, the very powerful, very clever, very dangerous Nestor Garcia, is headed for Manhattan, having decided he wants Dot back. He won't be at all happy to discover that the chances of a reconciliation are nil.

"Wang's smart, technocentric debut-Gossip Girl meets M.T. Anderson's Feed-addresses identity, public perception, and social media skewering." -- Publisher's Weekly Kyla Cheng doesn't expect you to like her. For the record, she doesn't need you to. On track to be valedictorian, she's president of her community club, a debate team champ, plus the yummy Mackenzie Rodriguez has firmly attached himself to her hip. But a week before college applications are due, a video of Kyla "doing it" with her crush-worthy English teacher is uploaded to her school's website. It instantly goes viral, but here's the thing: it's not Kyla in the video. With time running out, Kyla delves into a world of hackers, haters and creepy stalkers in an attempt to do the impossible-take something off the internet-all while dealing with the fallout from her own karmic footprint. Set in near-future Brooklyn, where privacy is a bygone luxury and every perfect profile masks damning secrets, The Takedown is a stylish, propulsive, and provocative whodunit, asking who would you rely on if your tech turned against you?

DEE KWAN'S FIVE EASY STEPS TO WIN THE DAY AND GET THE GUY: STEP ONE: Meet Mr. Perfect. Flirt. Daydream. Hope. STEP TWO: Discover he's secretly the son of your uber-problematic new fashion industry boss. STEP THREE: Realize your uber-problematic new boss is seriously, actually a problem. STEP FOUR: Team up with Mr. Perfect in a dizzying corporate coup like something out of a glamorous Old Hollywood movie. (Costume changes! Impulsive Parisian jaunts! Mr. Perfect being, well, perfect!) STEP FIVE: Win at everything and take over the whole dang world. "Hilarious and relatable." —TALIA HIBBERT, USA Today bestselling author for The Stand-In For Dee Kwan, every day is the perfect day. No, really. She has a house she loves, a job she adores, and a ridiculously attractive "nemesis" who never seems to mind when she wins their favorite online game. How can life possibly get better? (It can't, obviously. It can only get much, much worse.) Soon Dee is forced to share her adorably cozy home with her parents and prickly estranged grandmother. Then she's tossed into the deep end, tasked with cleaning up a scandal for intimidatingly chic luxury fashion firm Celeste. If that weren't enough, she discovers her hot-nemesis works there, too...and Teddy is nothing like the man she thought she knew. Before she can cry foul, Teddy comes clean about his double life: he's the heir to the CEO and he needs her help to make Celeste a better place—for everyone. But that means taking down the old guard—including his father—intent on standing in their way. Now in the center of a dizzying corporate coup, Dee is forced to decide whether she's ready to stop watching the world through rose-colored glasses and instead face the truth: about herself, about her feelings for Teddy, and about what she's willing to do to truly make a difference.
