Based on the award winning Starcrossed trilogy by author, Josephine Angelini. Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. At school when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history. Helen comes to learn that her irrational hatred of Lucas and his family is part of an ancient blood feud that dates back to the Trojan War.
As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.
Josephine Angelini is a graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in theater, with a focus on the classics. The Starcrossed series has experienced enormous success all across the globe. Published by Harper Teen here in the U.S. and in 23 territories outside the U.S., the series is a bestseller several times over. Starcrossed hit bestseller lists in the UK, Italy and Germany.
In addition to the Starcrossed series Josephine recently sold North American rights to her next trilogy, The Worldwaker Trilogy, to Jean Feiwel at Feiwel and Friends, a subsidiary of MacMillan Publishing, in a preemptive deal.
