A 2020 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults Pick

"Wildly addictive and beautifully terrifying... Readers will leave this glittering theme park forgetting what is real."--Dhonielle Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Belles

"Reading The Kingdom feels like a dark treasure hunt. Rothenberg interweaves profound existential questions with breakneck twists and turns to create a story that's both unputdownable and unforgettable."--Sara Holland, New York Times-bestselling author of Everless

"Rothenberg presents a thought-provoking anti-fairy tale."--Publishers Weekly

"This sublime blend of The Stepford Wives and Westworld is richly composed and intricately plotted."--Kirkus Reviews

"Through flashbacks, trial transcripts, and evidence exhibits, Ana's story, and greater revelations about the world around her, unfold in tantalizing pieces. A layered and fast-paced mystery with an ethical backbone."--Booklist

"The Kingdom is essentially Disney on steroids, and Rothenberg brings the idea of a place built on fantasy to its inevitable conclusion: what happens when those fantasies aren't so nice, and at whose cost are those fantasies fulfilled?"--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This highly accessible title is recommended to both science fiction fans and teens who don't normally read in this genre, and to readers who enjoyed titles such as Lauren Oliver's Replica and S.J. Kincaid's The Diabolic."--School Library Journal
