If you haven’t read her book before, here’s what others have to say about CALCULATED:

“An enjoyable thriller with an intriguing, relatable protagonist.”
“A high-stakes YA tale of betrayal, revenge, and numbers.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“An intense and wonderfully complex thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning pages!”
-Jessica Day George, NYT bestselling author of SILVER IN THE BLOOD and the TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES series

“A cunning story of strategy destined to keep readers chasing resolution from Seattle to Shanghai.”
-Jennifer Jenkins, co-founder of Teen Author Boot Camp and author of the NAMELESS series and TEEN WRITER’S GUIDE


She has many names – Octavia, Double 8, Phoenix, Josephine. She’s a math prodigy, a calculating genius and everyone wants her.

In seventeen-year-old Jo River’s complicated world of numbers, there’s no such thing as coincidence. When she is betrayed by someone she loves, kidnapped by the world’s most wanted smuggler, and forced to use her talent to shore up a criminal empire, Jo deems her gift a curse—until she meets Red.

Fellow captive and unlikely sage, Red teaches Jo to harness her true potential, so she can do more than just escape. Before he dies, Red reveals a secret about her enemies and makes her vow to right his wrongs. But Jo has a vow of her own.

With help from Chan, a bitter billionaire, and Kai, his off-limits son, Jo rises into a new role, ready to take down those who ruined her life. Until a mathematical error comes back to haunt her with a threat much more dangerous than the criminals on the loose.

To beat the odds, Jo must decide who she really is and if risking everything is worth it.

After all, history is not made—it’s calculated.

Audiobook comes out February 23rd with Recorded Books/Audible *Cool fact: The audiobook reader is the same original reader for “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”

Calculated Movie planned to go into development 2021, planned to go into production in 2022. 

Such a great day for us at the SP! Wishing you the best of luck Nova on future books! Thanks for all you do from your Spinning Pen community. 🙂
