Publisher Comments:

Nicola Lancaster is spending the summer at the Siegel Institute Summer Program for Gifted Youth — a hothouse of smart, articulate, intense teenagers living like college students for eight weeks. Nic's had theater friends and orchestra friends, but never just friend friends. And she's certainly never had a relationship. But on the very first day, she falls in with Katrina the Manic Computer Girl, Isaac the Nice-Guy-Despite-Himself, Kevin the Inarticulate Composer...and Battle. Battle Hall Davies is a beautiful blonde dancer from North Carolina. She's everything Nic isn't. Soon the two are friends — and then, startlingly, more than friends. What do you do when you think you're attracted to guys, and then you meet a girl who steals your heart?

Empress of the World is the remarkable debut novel from Sara Ryan — a book so funny, poignant, and true that it will steal your heart, too.
