Have you heard of the Scarlett & Crimson series by Allyson Black yet? The first two books, Darqstarz Rising (#1) and A Light in the Darq (#2) are out in paperback today.
Scarlett Ravencraft and Crimson Hawthorne are 13-year-old BFFs who see the world in a unique way.
They're obsessed with all things 'darq,' meaning they like individuality and being alone in your own thoughts and emotions...together.
Get it? If you're still in the darq, you can check out their website, scarlettandcrimson.com and download exclusive chapters from both books! You can also create songs, read their diaries and create your own character.
S&C have to deal with normal middle school issues like homework and avoiding the annoying popular girls, but their real passion is music and the upcoming Battle of the Bands (hello, Bandslam anyone?). Oh and the illustrations are amazing. Definitely worth checking out.
