Join us tonight for a stupendous celebration of a brand new YA novel by Austin Author Chandler Baker, Alive. When teenager Stella Rossi finally receives a heart transplant, she is determined to embrace her new life. But her recovery is marred with strange side effects: Nightmares. Hallucinations. A recurring pain that flares every day at the exact same moment. Enter Levi, the new boy at her prep school she is inexplicably drawn to, and even more questions arise. 


Chandler Baker got her start ghostwriting novels for teens and tweens before turning to her own stories. She grew up in Florida, went to college in Pennsylvania, and studied law in Texas where she now lives with her husband. Although she loves spinning tales with a touch of horror, she is a much bigger scaredy-cat than her stories would lead you to believe. You can visit her online at
