Take a couple of girls, add a gangster and a ghost, set it all in the early '20's and you have a great young-adult read by Bozeman author Janet Fox.

SIRENS, Fox’s third young adult novel, follows FAITHFUL, a 2011 Best Fiction for Young Adults nominee and 2011 Amelia Bloomer List pick, and FORGIVEN, a 2012 Junior Library Guild selection and finalist for the 2012 Children’s and Young Adult WILLA Award.

Fox considers SIRENS a "noire romance". It's set in New York City in the “Roaring Twenties”, the age of flappers and bootleggers. The story centers on Josephine Winter, a seventeen-year-old sent to live with relatives in New York City after her bootlegging father is threatened.

Jo befriends Louise O’Keefe and finds romance with jazz musician Charlie. But she has secrets of her own and what she discovers puts everyone she cares about in danger.

The book, published by Speak/Penguin, will come out in soft-cover and e-book format at the same time. Find out more information at www.janetsfox.com.
