Introducing . . .WHITE KNIGHTS
Geek Girls Rule!
My name is Angel Sinclair. I’m the youngest senior at Excalibur Academy for the Technologically Gifted and Talented in Washington, DC. I was pushed ahead a year because of my high IQ and considerable prowess behind the keyboard, making me an outcast even among my own peers. I’ve been looking for my dad all my life. A brilliant mathematician and cryptographer, he disappeared under mysterious circumstances when I was eighteen months old. Although my mom tells me I must put him in my past, it only makes me more determined to find out what happened to him. When weird accidents start happening at my school and the vice principal is involved in a deadly incident, I don’t see it as a coincidence. After launching my own investigation, with the aid of an unexpected set of allies calling themselves the White Knights, I discover a threat far greater than I ever could have imagined. I could take my discoveries to the authorities, but my own investigative methods would be at risk. Can anyone say hacking? No, it’s up to me to set things right. My objectives are straightforward: clear the name of the vice principal, learn the truth about my father, and stay alive. In other words, save the day and try not to look too much like a dork while doing it.
More on the WHITE NIGHTS Series!
WHITE KNIGHTS is the first book in my adventurous White Knights series featuring teenage geek girl extraordinaire, Angel Sinclair, and her nerd herd, as they race to solve the mystery with their brains and keyboards, taking on spies and hackers. The third book in the series, ONE-KNIGHT STAND, is expected to drop Spring 2020. YA Books Central says this about WHITE KNIGHTS: "I like the geek-girl/hacking concept and think it brings a fresh concept to YA books...I would recommend this to fans of humor, nerdiness, spies, secrets, and hacking!” Check out the rest of the reviews HERE.
Also, the 13th book in my popular, long-running, geeky Lexi Carmichael Mystery Series, NO QUESTIONS ASKED will be out March 2020. USA Today says: “The Lexi Carmichael mystery series runs a riveting gamut from hilarious to deadly, and the perfectly paced action in between will have you hanging on to Lexi’s every word and breathless for her next geeked-out adventure!”
