AND AFTER

                         NEW BOOK HAPPENING! 

So far GIRLS LIKE ME is off to a good start. Lots of positive feedback from readers.

GIRLS LIKE ME (Orca Book Publishers) releases on Tuesday, August 27, 2019. This Soundings novel is the timely tale of a girl who gets raped by a boy at school, but no one believes her. All she wants to do is hide, but when she suspects her best friend might be next, she knows she has to do something.

"...the author skillfully shows rather than tells the toll toxic masculinity takes on teens and their families." Kirkus Reviews

"The plot is fast-paced and engaging, something that young readers will enjoy."--CM: Canadian Review of Materials
