The Brilliant Death (Viking Fall 18, with a sequel Fall 19)

Setting inspiration for The Brilliant Death


This is the book sometimes known as “magical mafia princess,” and I CANNOT WAIT to share strega magic with the world!


“A YA fantasy set in a magical variation of 19th-century Italy. Teodora DiSangro, daughter of a mafia-like family, must master her hidden powers to transform into a boy and plunge into the dangerous politics of her newly unified country, while her shape-shifting multi-gendered magic tutor pulls her heart —and her fate —in another direction.”

The Lost Coast (Candlewick Spring 19)

Me in a redwood tree

Official announcement!

“Candlewick has acquired The Lost Coast, a YA novel by Amy Rose Capetta, in which 17-year-old Danny is drawn to the redwoods of California by a spell. The queer teen witches who cast it need Danny’s abilities to bring back their friend who’s gone blank—lost to the world. Publication is planned for spring 2019.”

This will be my second novel with the team that did Echo After Echo! I’ve been dreaming of setting a novel in the redwoods since I moved there as a teenager. And I’ve always wanted to write witchy YA. So many of my favorite things are going into this book. Including a ton of WEIRD.

Rainbow Boxes raised enough money to send books to every state in the US! 


The fundraiser was a success–thank you so much to everyone who helped! Donated! Word-spreaded! We raised over 15k to send LGBTQIA YA to a community library, GSA, or LGBTQIA homeless shelter in every state. Books will be sent out soon! And again. Seriously. Thank you. There has been so much support ad positivity, such an outpouring of love for these books and these readers. My heart can’t even.



Blast from the past: Cade and her crew at BEA!

For its very first public outing, Entangled was chosen to be one of five YA novels on the Editor’s Buzz Panel. There was a reading! A signing! An event in which fabulous editor Kate O’Sullivan talked about the book!






The author channeling her badass protagonist. (Bonus: Rainbow Rowell spotting! That’s the author of Eleanor and Park in the background.)



First book signing! At the Houghton Mifflin booth with a deliriously real stack of ARCs!
