Some brief overview of book

Deadly Secrets Tangled Lies Woven truths Incapable. Awkward. Artless.

That's what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret She wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she's exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen to work the looms is everything a girl could want.

It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to manipulate the very fabric of reality. But if controlling what people eat, where they live, and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn't interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and used her hidden talent for a moment. Now she has one hour to eat her mom's overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister's academy gossip and laugh at her dad's jokes.

One hour to pretend everything's okay. And one hour to escape. Because tonight, they'll come for her.

About author

Albin holds a master's degree in English literature from the University of Missouri and founded the tremendously popular blog theconnectedmom. com. She lives in Lenexa, Kansas, with her husband and two children. Q&A with Gennifer Would you describe the world of Arras?

Arras is a world of cocktails, beautiful women who hide deadly secrets behind their made-up faces and silk stockings, and men who fear women so much that women have been forced into powerless roles. No one is quite who they seem and in the middle of it all, sixteen-year-old Adelice has to navigate a tangled web of lies and conspiracy to unravel the truth about her world and her identity. What inspired you to create such a world?

I wanted to create a world that wasn't anything you might expect from a story about girls weaving the fabric of life. Weaving, sewing, and other needlecraft have always been considered womanly arts, so I chose to build Arras into a glamorous, but very Mad-Menesque world. There I can explore how girls feel about traditional jobs and responsibilities as well as the temptation of luxury and fame.

And let's face it, writing characters in fedoras and pin curls is fun. Are you like any of the characters in the book? Eventually a high school teacher of mine is going to expose that Adelice gets her penchant for challenging authority from me.

I've always been a big fan of the comeback, but as I get older I'm learning to bite my tongue. I think Jost would be proud.
