From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Atlas Six (under the penname Olivie Blake) comes Twelfth Knight, an grumpy/sunshine YA romantic comedy and coming of age story about taking up space in the world and learning what it means to let others in.

Viola Reyes is annoyed.

Her painstakingly crafted tabletop game campaign was shot down, her best friend is suggesting she try being more "likable," and school runningback Jack Orsino is the most lackadaisical Student Body President she's ever seen, which makes her job as VP that much harder. Vi's favorite escape from the world is the MMORPG Twelfth Knight, but online spaces aren't exactly kind to girls like her—girls who are extremely competent and have the swagger to prove it. So Vi creates a masculine alter ego, choosing to play as a knight named Cesario to create a safe haven for herself.

But when a football injury leads Jack Orsino to the world of Twelfth Knight, Vi is alarmed to discover their online alter egos—Cesario and Duke Orsino—are surprisingly well-matched.

As the long nights of game-play turn into discussions about life and love, Vi and Jack soon realise they've become more than just weapon-wielding characters in an online game. But Vi has been concealing her true identity from Jack, and Jack might just be falling for her offline...

Industry Reviews
Alexene Farol Follmuth(...) beautifully reimagines a classic tale for the modern moment with tremendous wit, effortless grace, and laugh out loud jokes. (...)There is heart and humor here that exemplifies the very best of romance and comedy. -- Arya Shahi, author of An Impossible Thing to Say

A love letter to fandom and gaming culture. Twelfth Knight is a charming read which doesn't shy away from examining the fraught relationship between fandom, gaming, and misogyny. Vi and Jack encapsulate the perfect enemies-to-lovers romance; opposites in every way but sizzling with chemistry. -- Adiba Jaigirdar, author of The Henna Wars, A Million to One

Twelfth Knight is a smart, fresh and heart-warming romcom that any reader will enjoy! -- Nick Brooks, author of Promise Boys

Twelfth Knight is a firecracker of a novel, taking a well-beloved Shakespearean classic, gutting out its heart, and forming a fresh, compulsively readable story that is reminiscent of the best of the 90's movie teen cult classics. With charming nods to Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and a captivating heroine who always stands her ground, Alexene Farol Follmuth has composed an irresistible and heartwarming novel in Twelfth Knight. -- Faridah Abike-Iyimide, author of Ace of Spades and Where Sleeping Girls Lie
