Rising Star Teen Vlogger Juggles Fame and a Family Secret in New Flux Debut


ST. PAUL, MN – Flux, an imprint of North Star Editions, Inc. (NSE) is excited to announce the May 7, 2019 release of Tinfoil Crowns by Erin Jones. Tinfoil Crowns is a young adult contemporary novel about seventeen-year-old Fit, an internet video star reaching for fame when the mother who tried to kill her comes back into her life.

More about Tinfoil Crowns:

Seventeen-year-old internet video star Fit is on a mission to become famous at all costs. She shares her life with her fans through countless videos (always sporting some elaborate tinfoil accessory), and they love her for it. If she goes viral, maybe she can get out of her small casino town and the cramped apartment she shares with her brother and grandpa. But there’s one thing Fit’s fans don’t know about her: when Fit was three-years-old, her mother, suffering from postpartum psychosis, tried to kill her.

Now Fit’s mother, River, has been released from prison. Fit is outraged that River is moving in with the family, and it’s not long before Fit’s video followers realize something’s up and uncover her tragic past. But Fit soon realizes that the only thing her audience loves more than tragedy is a heartwarming tale of a family reunion. Is faking a relationship with River the key to everything Fit ever dreamed of?
