About the Book

Fans of Pretty Little Liars, look no further for your new favorite chilling mystery: the Shade Me series by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Brown. This last book in a popular trilogy is a nail-biting, not-to-be-missed finale that will leave readers breathless.

Nikki Kill doesn’t see the world in black and white. Her synesthesia shades everything in view, transforming numbers, words, and emotions into colorful clues. Which means she’s a dangerous commodity to anyone with something to hide.

Nikki has already taken on the Hollises—one of L.A.’s most powerful families—for murdering her half sister, Peyton. However, Nikki’s next steps are clouded by the gray of uncertainty. Before she knows it, Nikki is on the trail of a cold case that couldn’t be any more personal—the death of her mother.

But when the web of lies and secrets she uncovers leads back to the people who have tried to silence her, Nikki must pursue the sunbeam gold of justice, or everything—including her life—will be lost.

Critical Praise

PRAISE FOR SHADE ME: “This dark tale hits all the hallmarks of a traditional hardboiled mystery, full of dirty secrets and potential betrayals. Brown (Torn Away) skillfully uses Nikki’s condition to put a fresh spin on time-honored noir conventions.” —Publishers Weekly

“Nikki is a force to be reckoned with.” —School Library Journal

“Nikki’s endearingly heedless with a careless confidence, and her tenacity may earn respect.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“SHADE ME is a wild ride, illuminating the gritty side of Los Angeles and the beautiful people who populate it. Fans of Veronica Mars will fall in love with Nikki Kill.” —Michelle Gagnon, author of the Don't Turn Around trilogy

PRAISE FOR DARE YOU: “Brown’s series is a must-have for older teens and as a crossover title for mystery and thriller fans seeking a young, feisty protagonist. The satisfying but open conclusion begs for more Nikki Kill adventures.” —Booklist
