In this thrilling, suspenseful novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz, all of Ellie de Florent-Stinson’s secrets come to light in one eventful evening full of twists, turns, and surprises.

Before she became a glamorous fashion designer, Ellie de Florent-Stinson was a trailer-park teen about to turn sixteen. But a night of birthday celebration doesn’t go exactly as planned and descends into a night she’ll never be able to forget.

Now, on the cusp of her fortieth birthday, it appears Ellie has everything she ever wanted: a handsome husband; an accomplished, college-age stepdaughter; a beautiful ten-year-old girl; adorable and rambunctious six-year-old twin boys; lush, well-appointed homes in Los Angeles, Park City, and Palm Springs; a thriving career; and a dazzling circle of friends.

Except everything is not quite as perfect as it looks on the outside—Ellie is keeping many secrets. And hiding those skeletons has a cost, and it all comes to a head the night of her fabulous birthday party in the desert—where everyone who matters in her life shows up, invited or not. Old and new friends and frenemies, stepdaughters and business partners, ex-wives and ex-husbands congregate, and the glittering facade of Ellie’s life begins to crumble.

Beautifully paced and full of surprises, The Birthday Girl is an enthralling tale of a life lived in shadow and its unavoidable consequences.

Story Locale: Palm Springs, CA

#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.

Melissa de la Cruz is the #1 New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly internationally bestselling author of many critically acclaimed novels, including Disney’s Descendants novels, the Blue Bloods series, and the Alex & Eliza trilogy. Witches of East End became an hour-long television drama on the Lifetime network. Her books have sold more than eight million copies worldwide. She lives in Los Angeles with her family and, for many years, owned Lear House in Palm Springs, where she threw many fun events, but never a birthday party.

“[Melissa de la Cruz] contrasts the glamorous but vacuous world of the backstabbing elite with gritty but often sweet memories of Ellie’s impoverished youth…. Scandalous and bittersweet, our heroine’s charmed life seems to teeter on designer stilettos as she gets closer to the truth of who she really is.”Kirkus Reviews

“Melissa de la Cruz expertly mixes biting satire with suspense and throws in more than a few surprises…. Readers will be riveted as long-simmering secrets come to light.”Publishers Weekly

“Alternating narratives and layers of unanswered questions keep the pace moving quickly, and readers interested in domestic drama with ominous undertones will be hooked.”—Booklist

“This is an intriguing domestic suspense novel that will engross readers as they explore Ellie’s life and past.”The Parkersburg News and Sentinel
