Z:A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler
Nick! Nick!NICK!!!! Need I say more about why I am impatiently waiting on Secret by Brigid Kemmerer?
Also, props to Brigid K for writing a gay lead into a popular YA series. I love the Merrick brothers and Nick’s book should be hella entertaining.
Official Synopsis:Nowhere is safe. Not even home…
Nick Merrick is stretched to the breaking point.
Keep his grades sky-high or he’ll never escape his hometown.
Keep his brother’s business going or the Merricks will be out on the street.
Keep the secret of where he’s going in the evenings from his own twin—-or he’ll lose his family.
Keep his mind off the hot, self-assured dancer who’s supposed to be his “girlfriend’s” partner.
Of course there’s also the homicidal freak Quinn has taken to hanging around, and the Elemental Guide counting the hours until he can try again to kill the Merrick brothers.
There’s a storm coming. From all sides. And then some.
Nick Merrick, can you keep it together?

Characteristics of the “Bad Guy” Antagonist
A few footnotes:
1. This list is meant to characterize an “evil” antagonist - some antagonists are perfectly decent people, and some are not even people.
2. Can also be used as a general flaws list that pertains to any character.
3. I wrote the list with masculine pronouns because English is hard, but all of these can apply to characters of any gender.
4. The four categories are just conceptual, for thought organization. Characterize freely.
