Editorial Reviews


"Beautiful prose, an intelligent plot, and a heroine as fabulous as she is unique--I couldn't put it down!" ~ C. J. Redwine, author of the Defiance Trilogy
“I never expected 
The Fifty-Seven Lives of Alex Wayfare to be as good as it was. It took me completely by surprise and turned out to be quite possibly one of the best novels from Strange Chemistry books to date. Forget popular books like The Hunger Games & Twilight, M.G. Buehrlen’s debut novel is something that every young adult fan should read.”
- Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“It is addictive and completely unputdownable. M.G. Buehrlen has astounded me; she’s a genius. I couldn’t put this book down, couldn’t stop. There’s mystery and intrigue and about a thousand hints and red herrings to throw you off. This is the kind of book that needs to be read, book-club style, and talked about: “what’s going on?”, “who did this?” “whyyyyy?!” All this—and more. 
The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare is a stunning novel that is expertly written and paced and presented and—and everything. This book is beautifully heart-breaking and inspiring and terrifying and meaningful. It will surprise and delight and astonish.”
- Jet Black Ink

“a non-stop thrill-a-minute ride with some quick detours in our thinking necessary.  I did not want this book to end, and will anxiously await the next book in the sequel! Looking for a good book?  This YA sci-fi adventure 
is a good book!”
- Looking For A Good Book

“a fun, fast paced read…a wonderful debut novel, and I hope to see a sequel from this author soon.”
- Avid Reviews

“The writing is superb as is the character development. The story-line will rivet until the wee hours of the morning, and thankfully, the novel is longer than most so you can make the enjoyment last a little longer. I want more of this story and more of this author.”
- Koeur’s Book Reviews

About the Author

When she’s not writing about teens who save the world, M. G. moonlights as a web designer and social media marketing buff, and she’s the current mastermind lurking behind the hugely popular website, a social network for YA (and kids!) book lovers.

Places you might find M. G. hiding: in her creaky old house nestled in Michigan pines, sipping coffee on her porch, playing in leaf piles, cooking over campfires, and dipping her toes in creek beds.

MG Buehrlen is the author of THE 57 LIVES OF ALEX WAYFARE and the upcoming THE UNTIMELY DEATHS OF ALEX WAYFARE (available Spring 2016). For 12 years, MG was a web-developer and social media director, and she co-developed, the largest social network for YA book lovers. When not writing or web-developing, MG is a hipster-foodie-history-buff who, some say, is way too picky about the quality of her coffee.
