Happy Halloween, dolls. I thought today was an appropriate one to introduce you to an intense new book out called The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney. The novel, which comes from Alloy Entertainment (the same gorgeous people who brought you Gossip Girl), is about a new kind of superhero: Anthem Fleet, a girl whose broken heart is a weapon that she’ll use to avenge the brokenhearted people of her Gotham-like city.
This girl is so kick-ass–kind of like my girlfriends on the Upper East Side. And we all know a girl with a broken heart should be feared, especially if you’re the one who is responsible for it.
Check out the ultra cool book trailer below to get a tease of what happens in the juicy read:
High in her tower above Bedlam City, prima ballerina Anthem Fleet has lived her whole life by her parents’ strict rules, never leaving the sparkling, pristine North Side. Until she meets Gavin. An artist from the dangerous South Side of town, Gavin is like no one Anthem has ever met—and she falls for him suddenly and completely.
But Gavin’s world is as dangerous as it is intoxicating, and their romance crashes down around them one terrible night when they are attacked on the South Side and Gavin is kidnapped. When she wakes in a dark, blood-soaked lab, Anthem has a jagged scar down her chest . . . and an experimental bionic heart ticking inside her.
As Anthem will soon realize, her new mechanical heart didn’t just save her life—it left her with a strange and terrifying new strength. A strength that she’s going to need if she has any chance of rescuing Gavin and mending the scattered pieces of her broken heart.
If you could have supernatural powers, what would you want them to be and what would you do with them? Tell me in a comment below. XOXO
