How Maya Got Fierce cover

The Bold Type meets Younger in this YA fish-out-of-water contemporary novel about a teen who gets her dream job at a fashion magazine, despite being only seventeen.

She may be a farm girl, but seventeen-year-old Maya’s vision board is all about fashion and Fierce - the women’s magazine she’s been reading since she was ten. As the daughter of Punjabi garlic farmers, it's off to cow camp for the summer. But when she gets to the east coast, she learns that her cousin’s girlfriend works at Fierce - and realises that her wildest dreams might just be in reach. She's up for an internship, but taking it would mean leaving her parents’ plans behind. One other (major) glitch: her bosses at Fierce think she’s 26, and hire her as the assistant editor, not an intern. Maya is so close to making her dreams come true, and when she suggests the perfect candidate for a big story - and manages to get the scoop - all eyes are on her. How long can she keep her real age from her boss - and her real life from her parents?
