Marco is riding his bike through the mall parking garage when he is chased down by a few angry bullies from school. They run over his bike and he narrowly escapes into a hidden storage closet in the garage. After he nervously listens to their receding footsteps, he turns on the light and sees a mysterious object in the closet. And then it starts beeping.

No Safety in Numbers is the fast-paced and exciting story of Marco and three other teens, all locked in the mall for a week due to a “security incident.” Nobody except Marco knows anything about the bomb in the garage, and the officials aren’t sharing any information with the shoppers or employees. What happens when thousands of people are stuck in the mall for a week? It’s not pretty.

The new book in Marissa Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles comes out February 4th, 2014 and the awesome cover has been revealed!  Cress, the third in the series, revamps the Rapunzel fairy tale, much like Cinder did with Cinderella and Scarlet did with Little Red Riding Hood. Instead of being cooped up in a tower like Rapunzel, Cress is stuck in an orbiting satellite while a war rages between Earth and the moon colony of Luna, led by the cruel Queen Levana. Check out a revealing interview with Meyer and read an excerpt from the new book! And, don't forget to put your name on the hold list!
