Book Cover
STARR FALL
Kim Briggs
Series: Starr Fall, Book 1
Genre: Young Adult, YA Contemporary, YA Romance
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: November 4, 2016
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
Abandon whatever you are doing and read this book! I truly enjoyed it. It's such a quick paced book. You could easily read five or six chapters without realizing how much time has passed! The ending left me wanting more!
- Shakera Blakney, YA Insider

Excerpt

The note does nothing to calm my nerves. Something is Wrong. Very wrong. What time is it? I search the house for a clock or a cell phone or a watch and find nothing. There’s no clock in this place? Don’t these people care about the time? I pace back and forth in the cabin, unable to shake the feeling that something happened to Christian.

Little Miss peeks in through the open door and neighs. I walk outside and scratch her neck in the way she likes it, but she keeps throwing her head in my chest.

 “What’s wrong, sweetie?” I ask. She snickers and trots away. After twenty feet or so, she stops and turns to me. She tosses her head in the direction of the path to the barn.

 “Should we go down to them?” She trots back to me. I swear she nods her head in agreement. I grab clumps of her mane and jump on her back.

I think of nothing on my way down the trail except finding Christian. It’s the longest five miles of my life. The gallop across the field to the barn would normally fill me with exhilaration, but it only tightens the nerves in my stomach. Demon dances around the corral, but there’s no sign of Christian.

“Christian? Christian!” I shout as I slide off Little Miss. The lump in my throat swells up.

On my way to the barn, something shiny grabs my attention. I reach down and grab the studded black leather strap of Christian’s keychain. Clutching it to my chest, I shout for him, but he doesn’t answer. My stomach twists into knots. I rush over to the barn, and almost throw up at the sight of the silver padlock hanging from the barn doors. Something’s wrong. Very wrong.  

Think Starr, think. Don’t panic. In order to find Christian, you have to figure out where he’s been.

About Kim Briggs

Author Pic
Kim Briggs once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17-year-old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it’s not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can’t escape. And Then He is available through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall released November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017 and Starr Gone in June 2017. Her novella, Avalanche is part of the Valentine Kisses Anthology and released February 14, 2017.
When she’s not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snowdrifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She’s careful to avoid trees.
