What happens in Vegas when an all-asexual online friend group attempts to break into a high-stakes gambling club? Shenanigans ensue.
"A fast-paced, thrilling diversion."
Some people join chess club, some people play football. Jack Shannon runs a secret blackjack ring in his private school's basement. What else is the son of a Las Vegas casino mogul supposed to do?
Everything starts falling apart when Jack's mom is arrested for their family's ties to organised crime. His sister Beth thinks this is the Shannon family's chance to finally go straight, but Jack knows that something's not right. His mom was sold out, and he knows by who. Peter Carlevaro: rival casino owner and jilted lover. Gross.
Jack hatches a plan to find out what Carlevaro's holding over his mom's head, but he can't do it alone. He recruits his closest friends--the asexual support group he met through fandom forums. Now all he has to do is infiltrate a high-stakes gambling club and dodge dark family secrets, while hopelessly navigating what it means to be in love while asexual. Easy, right?
A wild romp told in a can't-look-away-from voice, Aces Wild is packed with internet friend hijinks and ace representation galore!
"What a thrilling heist, and a fabulous debut from DeWitt! I had a blast reading this book. Between its laugh-out-loud moments, gasp-worthy twists, wonderfully diverse cast, and a voice that leaps off the page, I wished I could keep hanging out with Jack and his friends after the story ended."
Diana Urban, author of These Deadly Games
"Aces Wild is the queer heist I've been waiting for! Thrilling, emotional, and downright delightful, this is the book I wish I'd had as a teenager. A fun and satisfying romp!"
Rosiee Thor, author of Tarnished Are the Stars
"A fast-paced read full of characters who will steal your heart, Aces Wild is a fantastic book that I wish my younger self could have read. Fans of heists and found families don't want to miss this one!"
