In How Maya Got Fierce by Sona Charaipotra, The Bold Type meets Younger when a teen who gets her dream job at a fashion magazine, despite being only seventeen.

Maya dreams of working in magazines. But as the daughter of garlic farmers, her path is set: it's off to Cow Camp instead. But when she ends up in the New York City area and realizes her cousin's girlfriend works at Maya's favorite magazine - Fierce - an opportunity falls in her lap to intern. It's her dream job, and she can't pass it up, even if means disappointing her family and lying to her parents.

The only problem? Maya hasn't accepted an internship. She's accepted a full time job, as a staff writer, and everyone at Fierce thinks she's 26.

Maya is so close to making her dreams come true, even if the glam life at Fierce isn't quite as shiny and fun as she hoped. But when she suggests the perfect candidate for a big story--and manages to get the scoop--all eyes are on her. How long can she keep her real age from her boss--and her real life from her parents?
