Surprise! I’ve got a second book coming out this year! GIRL ON THE RUN will be published on October 6th in paperback, ebook, and audiobook! Not only is this book a new genre for me (YA Thriller) but it’s also being released from a new publisher. Delacorte (Penguin Random House) is launching a new imprint called Underlined which is focusing on face-paced thrillers, mysteries, and rom-coms. I’m so excited to be branching out with this new genre while continuing to write Contemporary YA as well (if you missed it, EVERY OTHER WEEKEND, my latest Contemporary YA was released earlier this year). And even though this new book is a thriller, you better believe it has pulse-pounding romance and family drama too. This book was a blast to write and I defy you to put GIRL ON THE RUN down once you start! Scroll down to see the cover and read the full description:
A fast-paced original paperback thriller about a girl who discovers that her mother might not be who she says she is . . . and now someone is hunting them both.
Katelyn wants the best for her widowed mom. Surprising her with an online dating profile seems like a good idea.
It isn’t. Katelyn’s mom hasn’t just been acting overprotective all these years–she’s been hiding something. And now that anyone can find them online, Katelyn is in a desperate race against time to uncover the secrets of the past–not only her mom’s, but also her own.
As Katelyn’s world unravels, she begins to trust the guy who brought this nightmare to her door and to doubt the one person she never thought she would. Because her mom has been hiding for a reason: she’s been waiting.

Abigail Johnson was born in Pennsylvania. When she was twelve, her family traded in snowstorms for year-round summers and moved to Arizona. Abigail chronicled the entire cross-country road trip in a purple spiral-bound notebook that she still has, and has been writing ever since. She became a tetraplegic after breaking her neck in a car accident when she was seventeen but hasn’t let that stop her from bodysurfing in Mexico, writing and directing a high-school production of Cinderella, and riding roller coasters every chance she gets. She is the author of several young adult novels including If I Fix You and Every Other Weekend.
