See the cover of Scott Westerfeld's new novel 'Afterworlds' -- EXCLUSIVE


Scott Westerfeld, the author of the extremely popular Uglies and Leviathan series, has a new novel novel coming out on Sept. 23. Afterworlds is a suspenseful thriller about a young writer, Darcy Patel, who arrives in New York City with a contract to write a YA novel. There’s a meta element: Darcy’s novel-within-the-novel, also called Afterworlds – about a girl who delves into a realm between the living and the dead to hide out during a terrorist attack – is woven into Darcy’s narrative as she learns to navigate life in the city.
