Introducing THE RADICAL ELEMENT
Hi! I have some super happy-making news — I’m doing another anthology with Candlewick!
I am so excited to work with these 11 amazing new authors. I can’t wait to read their stories! The book will be out in Winter 2018.
In other awesome news, A TYRANNY OF PETTICOATS received another starred review! This one is from School Library Journal:
￼￼￼￼￼★ VERDICT: A must-buy. This collection will be sure to spark an interest in anyone who wants to indulge in strong and introspective young women living in a variety of historical time periods.
SLJ also reviewed WILD SWANS very positively:
VERDICT: A strong coming-of-age story.
And I got a really beautiful blurb from author friend Paula Stokes! It’s so awesome when it feels like a reader – much less an author you really admire – just gets your book and what you were trying to do with it!
WILD SWANS is the kind of thoughtful, summery book you’ll want to savor under starry skies or read on a porch swing with a glass of lemonade nearby. This compelling story of a girl trying to figure out who she is and who she wants to be vs. who everyone else expects her to be manages to feel both fresh and like a timeless classic. Highly recommended for Sarah Dessen fans. — Paula Stokes, author of Girl Against the Universe and The Art of Lainey
Speaking of WILD SWANS, if you’re in the mood for a summery read about a complicated family, fierce female friendships, and first love, you can read the first three chapters here! I hope it makes you want to read more!
