Latest Lauren DeStefano novel has fans in a Fever

Congratulations to Lauren DeStefano, who’s latest, Fever, landed at no. 6 this week. It’s the sequel to Wither, and while we really liked Wither here at Novel Novice, I can say we loved Fever. (Check out our Wither series fan fiction writing contest judged by Lauren herself!)
