Nolan’s loss to an unknown rook-ie shocks everyone, and his desire to cross pawns is confusing. Mallory’s victory opens the door to cash-prizes, and she’s drawn to the enigmatic strategist despite the situation.

“Life’s shifting pieces bring opposing chess players together in a duel for the heart in this witty and swoon worthy YA debut from the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis.”

The Book Guide® Editor

Mallory, as a rising star in the sport, struggles to keep her family safe from the game that caused her to hate it. As her love for the sport rekindles, she realizes the games are more than just on the board, and competition can be fierce and intelligent.
