#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR: Melissa de la Cruz has written a number of New York Times bestselling novels, including the hit Alex & Eliza Trilogy, which hit #2 on the New York Times bestseller list. More than 6 million copies of her books are in print.
AN EXCITING RETURN TO ADULT FICTION: After writing children’s and YA fiction for years, Melissa de la Cruz returns to the adult space—in a novel with plenty of darkness and twists.
MEDIA TIE-INS: Melissa’s 2018 novel 29 DATES has been fast-tracked for TV production by Disney’s streaming service, and her last adult series, Witches of East End, became a Lifetime series. In November 2018 film rights to her Alex and Eliza and Triple Moon series were bought by Chloe Moretz’s production company. The Birthday Girl has received film interest as well.
