Cynthia Leitich Smith Books Overview



Quincie Morris has never felt more alone. Her parents are dead, and her hybrid werewolf first love is threatening to embark on a rite of passage that will separate them forever. Then, as she and her uncle are about to unveil their hot vampire themed restaurant, a brutal murder leaves them scrambling for a chef. Can Quincie transform their new hire into a culinary Dark Lord before opening night? Can he wow the crowd in his fake fangs, cheap cape, and red contact lenses or is there more to this earnest face than meets the eye? As human and preternatural forces clash, a deadly love triangle forms, and the line between predator and prey begins to blur. Who’s playing whom? And how long can Quincie play along before she loses everything? Tantalize marks Cynthia Leitich Smith s delicious debut as a preeminent author of dark fantasy.


With diabolical wit, the author of TANATALIZE revisits a deliciously dark world where vampires vie with angels and girls just want to have fangs.

At last, Miranda is the life of the party: all she had to do was die. Elevated and adopted by none other than the reigning King of the Mantle of Dracul, Miranda goes from high school theater wannabe to glamorous royal fiend overnight. Meanwhile, her reckless and adoring guardian angel, Zachary, demoted to human guise as the princess’s personal assistant, has his work cut out for him trying to save his girl s soul and plan the Master s fast approaching Death Day gala. In alternating points of view, Miranda and Zachary navigate a cut throat Eternal aristocracy as they play out a dangerous and darkly hilarious love story for the ages.

Rain Is Not My Indian Name

The next day was my fourteenth birthday, and I’d never kissed a boy domestic style or French. Right then, I decided to get myself a teen life. Cassidy Rain Berghoff didn’t know that the very night she decided to get a life would be the night that Galen would lose his. It’s been six months since her best friend died, and up until now Rain has succeeded in shutting herself off from the world. But when controversy arises around her aunt Georgia’s Indian Camp in their mostly white midwestern community, Rain decides to face the outside world again at least through the lens of her canera. Hired by her town newspaper to photograph the campers, Rain soon finds that she has to decide how involved She wants to become in Indian Camp. Does she want to keep a professional distance from the intertribal community she belongs to? And just how willing is she to connect with the campers after her great loss?In a voice that resonates with insight and humor, Cynthia Leitich Smith tells of heartbreak, recovery, and reclaiming one’s place in the world.

Indian Shoes

What do Indian Shoes look like, anyway? Like beautiful beaded moccasins…
or hightops with bright orange shoelaces?

Ray Halfmoon prefers hightops, but he gladly trades them for a nice pair of moccasins for his Grampa. After all, it’s Grampa Halfmoon who’s always there to help Ray get in and out of scrapes like the time they are forced to get creative after a homemade haircut makes Ray’s head look like a lawn mowing accident.

This collection of interrelated stories is heartwarming and laugh out loud funny. Cynthia Leitich Smith writes with wit and candor about what it’s like to grow up as a Seminole Cherokee boy who is just as happy pounding the pavement in windy Chicago as rowing on a take in rural Oklahoma.

Jenna, a contemporary Muscogee Creek girl in Oklahoma, wants to honor a family tradition by jingle dancing at the next powwow. But where will she find enough jingles for her dress? An unusual, warm family story, beautifully evoked in Cornelius Van Wright and Ying Hwa Hu’s watercolor art.
