The best-selling author of Me and My Dad at the End of the Rainbow and The Secret Sunshine Project joins us in store to discuss his latest YA thriller The King is Dead!

The King is Dead is a captivating change of pace for Benjamin as his first YA thriller. James has been in the spotlight all his life, not just a Prince but the first black heir to the throne. When his father dies unexpectedly, James is crowned at the age of 17 with the weight of a kingdom on his shoulders. Then James' boyfriend goes missing and threatening notes are found around the palace. The young king is forced to accept that he is being targeted by one of his inner circle. But who is it, what do they want and how far are they willing to go to get it?

Benjamin Dean's works have thrilled and enamoured booksellers and customers alike with their honest and heart-warming depictions of queer life and queer love angled at young readers. He is at the forefront of queer fiction and reminds us that the best books for young readers are able to speak to all of us. Don't miss your chance to speak to him!
