Hello! I am so excited to share the news that my new book, UNFORGIVABLE, releases today! It is the sequel to INVINCIBLE (which also releases today in paperback), and starts right where the first book left us at a very nasty cliffhanger. You’ll find out what happens to Evie and Marcus, and this time it will be from Marcus’s point of view.

Unforgivable Book Cover

UNFORGIVABLE is my seventh book, and it’s my first written entirely from a boy’s perspective. It tells the story of Marcus as he tries to sort through the wreckage of his relationship with Evie, and as he finally faces the ghosts from his own past that he’s tried so desperately to outrun. It’s dramatic, romantic, and at times very dark, but with enough hope and transformation to make it all worth it. I promise!

Here’s a little more about UNFORGIVABLE and INVINCIBLE if you’re interested.

For my Asheville, NC area friends, I am part of an awesome author panel at Malaprop’s Bookstore next Wednesday, May 11, at 7:00 pm, with my pals Robin Constantine and Amber Smith. I hope to see you there! (Click HERE for info about my upcoming events in Athens, GA and Charlotte, NC.)

And in case you’re wondering, here’s a great article about things you can do to support your favorite authors.

Thank you so much for your support, and I hope you love reading UNFORGIVABLE as much as I loved writing it!

Damaged book cover

Hello friends, family, and fans,

I am so incredibly excited to tell you that my new book DAMAGED comes out TODAY!

I started writing it three summers ago while on a cross-country road trip with my husband, Brian, and just barely pregnant with my daughter Elouise. Kinsey and Hunter, the main characters in DAMAGED, visit many of the same places we came across on our route, and I hope you will take the journey with them.

Part ghost story, part epic road trip, and part reluctant love story, DAMAGED offers readers another piercing, poignant story full of emotional truth from author Amy Reed.

After Kinsey’s best friend Camille dies in a car accident during which Kinsey was driving, Kinsey shuts down, deciding that numbness is far better than mourning. All she wants during the last few weeks of high school is to be left alone, but Camille’s mysterious boyfriend, Hunter–who was also in the car that night–has different ideas.

Despite all of Kinsey’s efforts, she can’t outrun Camille, who begins haunting her dreams. Sleep deprived and on the verge of losing it, Kinsey runs away with Hunter to San Francisco. As they drive across the country, trying to escape both the ghost of Camille and their own deep fears, Kinsey questions all she once believed about her friendship with Camille. Hunter, meanwhile, falls into a spiral of alcoholism, anger, and self-loathing. Ultimately, Kinsey and Hunter must come to terms with what they’ve lost and accept that they can’t outrun pain.

Publisher’s Weekly called DAMAGED a “thoughtful portrait of survivor’s guilt and road trip story about taking the risk of shedding one’s past,” and Kirkus called it “haunting, in more ways than one.” School Library Journal said it is a “striking novel” that offers a “well-plotted and excellently written meditation on grief, loss, and the power of new beginnings.”

I am honored to share my book with you, and I hope you enjoy it. You can purchase it at your local bookstore or online at places like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Simon & Schuster, my local independent bookstore Malaprop’s, and many other retailers. If your local bookstore doesn’t have it, please request that they order it!

Here are some other things you can do to help your favorite authors:

  • Buy our books as close to the release date as possible
  • Request that your local library carry our books
  • Share news about our books on social media like Facebook and Twitter
  • Leave positive reviews on Amazon and Goodreads
  • Share the news by good old fashioned word of mouth

I would be grateful if you’d do any of these things to help spread the word about DAMAGED. It is a great joy to write books for you all. Thank you so much for your support.

I am so incredibly excited to finally show you the cover for INVINCIBLE, the first book in my two-book series with Katherine Tegen/Harper Collins (the same folks who do Veronica Roth’s DIVERGENT series, among other amazing books).


Live hard. Love hard. Don’t look back.

Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live.

All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it—at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating.

Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible—but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.

To be Released April 28, 2015

Isn’t it beeeyoooootiful?! I can’t wait for you to read it.
