Editor Katherine Tegen whose imprint is with HarperCollins will attend our September meeting at 9:30 and speak informally with us and take your questions. Katherine's Divergent series has been overwhelmingly successful both in print and on the screen. In his latest book Finders Keepers even Stephen King gives it a shout out. Hope to see you at the meeting.
Funny, smart, and hard working Deza Malone, from Bud, Not Buddy, has to rely on her talents when her Dad goes missing and her Mom loses her job during the Great Depression. Turpin’s narration covers the gamut of emotions, distinguishing each character and bringing Deza’s intelligence and humor to life. The novel fulfills qualities of a superb story punctuated with both laughter and tears. (10-14)
