Happy Book Birthday, Kit Grindstaff & THE FLAME IN THE MIST!

Today is the day my friend and fellow Lucky 13 Kit Grindstaff's debut MG novel, THE FLAME IN THE MIST, releases! Woo-hoo!

From Kit's website:

There's evil-a coming from up on the hill
If the Mist doesn't get you, the Agromonds will.

   —From an old Anglavian rhyme

The sun never shines in the land of Anglavia. Its people live within a sinister mist created by their rulers, the cruel Agromond family. The Agromonds' control is absolute; no one dares defy them. But things are about to change, for the youngest of them is not like the others...

Fiery-headed Jemma has always felt like the family misfit, and is increasingly disturbed by the dark goings-on at Agromond Castle. The night before her thirteenth birthday, Jemma discovers the terrifying reason why: She is not who she thinks she is, and the Agromonds have a dreadful ritual planned for her birthday—a ritual that could kill her.

But saving her skin is just the first of Jemma's ordeals. Ghosts and outcasts, a pair of crystals, a mysterious book, an ancient Prophecy—all these gradually reveal the truth about her past, and a destiny far greater and more dangerous than any she could imagine.
With her trusted friend, Digby, and her two telepathic golden rats, Noodle and Pie, Jemma faces enemies both human and supernatural. But in the end, she and her untapped powers might be the only hope for a kingdom in peril.

Doesn't it sound amazing? You can view the spine-tingling trailer for the book here, check out the schedule for Kit's blog tour here, and buy the book on Amazon.com or from Amazon.co.uk.

Congratulations, Kit!
