New York Times pulls YA novel from bestseller list after reports of fake sales
A young adult novel has been removed from the No 1 position on the New York Times bestseller lists, after detective work worthy of Nancy Drew by YA writers on Twitter uncovered a trail of strategic preorders being placed in particular US bookshops. Industry monitor Nielsen Bookscan recorded 18, sales of Handbook for Mortals in one weekend. But here we are. Stamper and other YA writers, including Jeremy West, began to investigate. Another bookshop shared similar information with West, while Publishers Weekly reported that a shop outside Las Vegas had a customer who ordered 87 copies after learning it was an NYT-reporting shop. An IMDb page for an adaption of the novel lists the author, Sarem who is also an actor and music act manager , as lined up to play the lead character.

She responded with a short story about a teenage girl who is drawn to activism after a white officer shoots her childhood best friend. That story grew into a page novel, as shootings of unarmed young black men continued.
After a night of mischief, the girl Quentin loves disappears.
