What an honor and incredible surprise to find my novel The Walls Around Us featured on this list of “The 30 Best Young Adult Novels of the 2010s” from Paste Magazine.
About The Walls Around Us, which was #24 on the list, Eric Smith said these amazing words:
“There’s something spooky about every single novel by Nova Ren Suma, but it’s in The Walls Around Us that she truly leaves readers feeling haunted. Propelled by Suma’s lyrical prose, the novel shifts back and forth between places, characters and time to tell the story of a murder that’s wrapped in secrets upon secrets. You’ll slowly begin to understand how the murder of a teen binds two people together: a ballerina and a girl currently serving a sentence at detention center. And as the supernatural mystery unravels, you’ll be left gasping. The book’s been described as “Orange is the New Black Swan,” and nothing could be more perfect.”
I’m so deeply honored. If you want to read the book, order it here.
