The Coupling (The Letting #2)
Release Date: February 15th 2016 TODAY

The Hunger Games meets Divergent!

This pair of books was so engaging that I read both books in one weekend; I couldn't put them down. This pair of books will be a pair that I will recommend to my students, especially those who are part of the current trend of dystopian literature. They would also make great addition to a literature circle or book club project featuring novel choice for students.

The second book is not a clear story without the The Letting. I actually started The Coupling and had to stop and go back and start the The Letting because there were some pieces missing. I am so very glad that I did go back and start with the beginning because The Letting (even when I had an idea of how it was going to end after starting The Coupling) was an interesting take on an alternate future of The United States.

The premise of blood being the commodity of trade intrigued me and then sucked me in.





In Ronnie Billings’ dystopian world, surviving the Letting and breaking free of a corrupt government is less of a surprise than falling in love with Phoenix Day, the leader of the Peaceful Revolution…

When the government sentences Ronnie to a Coupling under the guise of producing a coveted blood type, Ronnie discovers the one she’s slated to Couple with expects even more.

Prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice to save those she loves most, Ronnie devastates Phoenix with her impossible decision. Whisked away from her rebel life to another world ravaged by despair, Ronnie meets her greatest nemesis...her biological father.

Steeling her nerves against the dangers of escape, she embarks on the perilous journey back. She is convinced she belongs with Phoenix and his revolution, but will her friends, and especially Phoenix, be ready to accept her when she returns? Because this time, evil is in her blood...

About the Author

Given my love for cities and all that is gritty, my new obsession with trees really has me stumped. (Sorry.) Maybe it's because trees are the inspiration behind my new YA/NA novel, THE LETTING.

Whatever the reason for my new infatuation, some things remain constant -- like my love for: coffee (although sadly, it's now decaf); yoga; Luna bars (I am petitioning for them to bring back Chocolate Raspberry!); running in my neighborhood; Hemingway; Bukowski... and, above all, my husband and my girls.

I am the author of the bestselling novel, Sleeping With Mortals: The Story of a New York Mistress, and I'm also a playwright. I have my B.A. in English and my M.A. in Theatre.
