Originally a women’s fiction author, Jessica Brody found her niche in writing young adult novels. To date, Brody has published over 17 books, including the Descendants: School of Secrets series, which is based on the Disney Channel original movie. Her recent book, The Chaos of Standing Still, follows Ryn as she is stranded at the airport on New Year’s Eve. But Ryn is more distraught by an unread text message on her phone — the last one her best friend sent before dying almost a year ago. However, a random phone switch with a stranger unleashes an all-night escapade — and may even free her from her own troubles. Presented by Not Your Mother’s Book Club (NYMBC), Brody, along with Anna-Marie McLemore, author of Wild Beauty, and Lily Anderson, author of Undead Girl Gang, will be at Alameda’s Books Inc. to further discuss these stories.
