For fans of Laini Taylor, E. Lockhart, and Holly Black, the chilling story of a girl who goes to a once-a-year-party in the woods... and then must piece together the fantastical things that happened to her after she wakes up with no memory of the night before.

Once a year in the woods outside Ember Grove, the Revelry occurs. Everyone knows what it is -- an exclusive, mysterious party in the woods at the school year's end. But nobody really knows what happens there. Because once you attend the Revelry, you are sworn to secrecy... forever.

Bitsy Clark knows better than to break the rules around the Revelry. But her best friend, Amy, isn't waiting for an invitation. As the night comes closer, her plan is clear -- she and Bitsy are going to sneak their way in.

Bitsy can remember being nervous about this. She can remember going to the woods. But after that: Nothing. She doesn't know what happened to her. All she knows is that her life starts to unravel, while Amy's good fortune grows stronger.

Has Bitsy been cursed?

And if so, will she be able to discover enough secrets of the Revelry in order to free herself?

Praise For…

Praise for the UK edition of The Revelry:

"A short, sharp punch of a book that has the feel of a long lost fairy tale. Dangerous, mysterious and wonderfully unsettling, The Revelry is a powerful exploration of the angst and beauty of female friendship." -- Krystal Sutherland, NYT Bestselling Author of House of Hollow

"Webber weaves a haunting tale of a hungry wood, a legendary party, and longings sharpened like sticks by dark enchantment. But the book’s true heart is the seesawing bond between two best friends connected by love and history, whose lives are divided into Before and After following their attendance at that shadowy annual revel. You'll read it with your heart in your throat." -- Melissa Albert, NYT Bestselling Author of The Hazel Wood

"A highly compulsive, witchy thriller taking an astute look at the complexities of female friendship." -- The Bookseller
