But when she meets sweet, easygoing Grant, she can’t help but let him in. As they spend more time together, she realizes just how much she is losing by guarding her heart. She finds herself yearning to share with Grant everything about herself—including her past. But Amanda’s terrified that once she tells the truth, no one will be able to see past it.

Because the secret that Amanda’s been keeping? At her old school, she used to be Andrew.

If I Was Your Girl is a universal story about feeling different—and a love story that everyone will root for.

Just months after the major motion picture release of The 5th Wave comes the hugely anticipated series finale.

We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

The final book in this epic series will leave readers awestruck, then bring them straight back to book one, where they’ll comb the text for the clues that master storyteller Rick Yancey has been planting all along.
