Hi, there! Welcome to the book blitz of the day 😀 And it’s a book birthday too, holy cow! This one is on YA Bound Book Tours account and for a book from an author that I barely met and already consider a lot: The Masterpiecers, by Olivia Wildernstein!
by Olivia Wildenstein
Genre: YA Mystery
Release Date: April 15th, 2016
Nineteen-year-old Ivy Redd’s talent with a needle and thread has earned her a spot on a coveted reality TV art competition set in New York’s Metropolitan Museum. The prize: a significant amount of money and instant acceptance into the Masterpiecers, the school that ensures new artists fame and fortune. Her talent has also thrust her and her twin sister, Aster, into the spotlight.
Not that Aster needed help with becoming a media favorite. She managed that on her own by running over a wanted mobster. She told the police it was self-defense, because she couldn’t tell them the truth—the truth would make her sister look bad.
Locked in an Indiana jail to await her trial, Aster watches Ivy on the small TV hanging in the dayroom. It’s the highlight of her day, until she finds out what her sister truly thinks of her. Then, observing her sister becomes a punishment far crueler than imprisonment.
Olivia sounds like a great author. I just heard of her when the cover for Rose Petal Graves was revealed (and it was a breathtaking one, check it out!) and I already have a feeling that all her books may hook me =O Also, her covers tend to be so beautiful *–* I like pretty covers on awesome books, oops!
The Masterpiecers is available on both ebook and paperback on Amazon 😀
Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
That’s it, thanks for reading! I’m looking forward to read Olivia’s books in the future 😀
