The Season

A humorous, contemporary YA novel published by Viking/Penguin


Soccer star Megan McKnight thought she knew competition.
That was before she became a debutante.

A soccer star with Olympic dreams, Megan can’t believe her socialite mother secretly entered her and her twin in the Dallas debutante season. Her bad attitude gets her on debutante probation: she’s got a month to prove she can ballroom dance, display impeccable manners, and curtsey like a proper Texas lady or she’ll get the boot and disgrace her family.  Trading her cleats for kitten heels, Megan waltzes into a full schedule of dazzlingly extravagant parties.  When she’s swept off her feet by the charming Hank Waterhouse, she starts to think being a deb might not be so bad (if only she didn’t have to contend with a backstabbing blonde and her billionaire boyfriend). But that’s before Megan finds herself in the middle of a media-frenzy-causing scandal, being humiliated in front of a dozen ten-year-olds, and getting punched in the face by another girl.

The season has begun…but the drama is just getting started.

The Season is a fun, modern take on Pride and Prejudice, perfect for girls who know there is more to life than how you look.
