Lauren Oliver is a literary powerhouse, already an established and successful entrepreneur, co-founding content development company Paper Lantern Lit in 2010, which recently rebranded as Glasstown Entertainment. She has achieved literary rock star status in multiple genres with legions of readers of all ages of her two middle-grade novels, seven young adult novels, and novel for adults, Rooms. Her books consistently receive stunning reviews, hit the New York Times and other bestseller lists, win accolades and awards, and are in various stages of development with film and television. Critics have praised her novels!
Like its ambitious companion novel, Replica, this far-reaching novel digs deep into questions of how to be a human being, in a world where humanity cannot be taken for granted. Like Replica, RINGER contains two sub-novels in one and has mirror-inverted covers. Turn the book one way and read Lyra's story; turn the book upside down and read Gemma's story. Or read Gemma's first and Lyra's second. Or read chapter one in one book and chapter one in the other, and the reading experience will be different, and nuanced. Only a writer like Lauren Oliver—a writer with immense talent—could manage such an exciting, literary feat, and could create a book that can be read in four different ways. Lauren Oliver is the New York Times bestselling author of the YA novels Replica, Before I Fall, Vanishing Girls, Panic, and the Delirium trilogy: Delirium, Pandemonium, and Requiem, which have been translated into more than thirty languages.
