This is an TICKED IN-STORE EVENT. This event will consist of a 30 minute discussion with the author followed by the book signing. 


Purchasing a copy of OUR CROOKED HEARTS or any other of Melissa's available books through Mysterious Galaxy will get you a numbered ticket for the signing line after the event. Those who have not purchased a book through us are still welcome to get their books signed, but will have to wait until after the numbered line has finished. Purchasing your books through us allows us to continue to host author events, so we thank you in advance for your support!

  2. At checkout in the "order comments" box write "signed only" or to whom your book should be personalized (i.e. "To: Ms. Galaxy"). Requests for anything beyond a name, like a note or quote, are up to the author's discretion and are not guaranteed. Orders must be placed by 12pm pt on the day of the event (July 6th). Please call the store if you wish to purchase a book, or add/alter personalization to an existing order, after this time.

The suburbs, right now . . .
Seventeen-year-old Ivy’s summer break kicks off with an accident, a punishment, and a mystery: a stranger whose appearance in the middle of the road, in the middle of the night, heralds a string of increasingly unsettling events. As the days pass, Ivy grapples with eerie offerings, corroded memories, and a secret she’s always known—that there's more to her mother than meets the eye.

The city, back then . . .
Dana has always been perceptive. And the summer she turns sixteen, with the help of her best friend and an ambitious older girl, her gifts bloom into a heady fling with the supernatural. As the trio’s aspirations darken, they find themselves speeding toward a violent breaking point.

Years after it began, Ivy and Dana's shared story will come down to a reckoning among a daughter, a mother, and the dark forces they never should’ve messed with.
