Rediscovered Books will host a YA and Children's Book author panel with four up-and-coming authors! Joining us this evening will be authors Heidi Schulz, Robin Herrera, Sarah Tregay, and Miriam Forster.
"Hook's Revenge" by Heidi Schulz:
Captain Hook's swashbuckling daughter Jocelyn sets out on the high seas to avenge her infamous father's death at the jaws of the Neverland crocodile. However, Jocelyn finds that being a pirate is a bit more difficult than she bargained for in this spirited debut novel.
"Hope Is a Ferris Wheel" by Robin Herrera:
After moving from Oregon to a trailer park in California, ten-year-old Star participates in a poetry club, where she learns some important lessons about herself and her own hopes and dreams for the future.
"Fan Art" by Sarah Tregay
Jamie has been open about his sexuality to his parents since ninth grade but, fearing rejection, he heads toward graduation still closeted from his best friend, Mason, with whom he is falling in love. Though Jamie isn't the rebellious type, but when the literary magazine's board tries to avoid controversy by rejecting a lesbian student's comic, Jamie's righteous indignation propels him to take unorthodox steps to address their prejudice. Poems by classmates, some anonymous, appear between chapters, providing poignant insight into supporting characters' inner lives.
"Empire of Shadows" by Miriam Forster:
Cast out by her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her--an order where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire's capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could've imagined. More shocking still, Mara finds the boy she thought she'd lost forever outside the gates of her new home.
