"An anxiety-ridden ride as two girls' lives crash together through secrets, love and danger. . . Captivating and stunningly visual."
Aiden Thomas, New York Times-bestselling author of Cemetery Boys
An electric romance set against a rebel art scene sparks lethal danger for two girls in She's Too Pretty to Burn, an expertly plotted YA thriller by Wendy Heard.
The summer is winding down in San Diego. Veronica is bored, caustically charismatic, and uninspired in her photography. Nico is insatiable, subversive, and obsessed with chaotic performance art.
They're artists first, best friends second. But that was before Mick. Delicate, lonely, magnetic Mick: the perfect subject, and Veronica's dream girl. The days are long and hot--full of adventure--and soon they are falling in love. Falling so hard, they never imagine what comes next. One fire. Two murders. Three drowning bodies. One suspect . . . one stalker.
This is a summer they won't survive.
Inspired by The Picture of Dorian Gray, this sexy psychological thriller explores the intersections of love, art, danger, and power.
"A smouldering, hypnotic thrill-ride. Heard's YA debut crackles and pops with electric psychological suspense."
Kit Frick, author of See All the Stars, All Eyes on Us, and I Killed Zoe Spanos
"An expertly plotted deep dive into a complex web of friendship, desire, and murder."
Mindy McGinnis, author of Female of the Species
"A gritty, compulsively readable thriller that shimmers with California heat. She's Too Pretty to Burn will pull you into the dark twists of the underground art scene--and the jagged embrace of first love."
Hannah Capin, author of Foul Is Fair
"A romantic, fast-paced thriller inspired by a classic. The story unravels in colourful, electric prose...leading to exhilarating and twisty final third. This dark, winding novel expertly interweaves suspense and romance. A wild and satisfying romp."
Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"Heard paints a mesmerising portrait of love and betrayal amidst a slow-burn thriller... and once the murders begin, it's impossible to look away."
Diana Urban, author of All Your Twisted Secrets
"An anxiety-ridden ride as two girls' lives crash together through secrets, love and danger. There is masterful tension throughout the story as Mick and Veronica's lives pull and tangle together and they find themselves in over their heads and fighting for their lives. I burned through the final 50 pages, desperate to see how it ended and was left with literal goosebumps at the final lines. Captivating and stunningly visual, fans of Lauren Oliver's Panic will love this book and be hungry for more by Wendy Heard."
