NPR Best Books of 2015

I truly can’t believe this! The Walls Around Us was just named a Great Read of 2015 by NPR! NPR’s Book Concierge features books that NPR staff and critics loved this year, and my book is among them!

NPR-logo_tnThe Walls Around Us is included in some incredible YA company, and under my favorite category so far, “Ladies First.”

And just look what they said about the book:

“Part ghost story and part love song to teenage girls, this book illuminates both the beauty and the pain of youthful friendships. It paints a raw and unromantic portrait of the little societies that girls create, whether in the dance studio or the prison yard.”

That is everything I hoped for someone to see in my book. Thank you so much, NPR!
