About Afterparty:

A toxic friendship takes a dangerous turn in this riveting novel from the author of Where It Began.

Emma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother—whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma isn’t.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, a bash where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop...

Ann Stampler's Top 5 Things That Scare Me

  1. Turbulence in airplanes.  You wouldn’t want to be sitting next to me.
  2. Zombie movies.  Even terrible zombie movies.
  3. The edges of cliffs.  I would not be the right person to take down the Grand Canyon on a mule.
  4. Dense fog when I’m driving.
  5. Not so much anymore, but public speaking with a big audience of grown-ups.  I started my writing career with picture books, and I did a ton of programs for little kids.  When I started speaking to adults, I was struck by how very large they were.  And how they weren’t sitting on the floor.  And how they were a lot more intimidating than six-year-olds.

About Ann:

Ann Stampler was the mild mannered author of literary picture books when she broke out, tore off her tasteful string of pearls, and started writing edgy, contemporary young adult novels set in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and writer’s-helper rescue dog – without whose compelling distraction she would have no doubt penned dozens of novels by now.
