Comeback makes a splash on the Eastern Seaboard.

Comeback, Tri State Book of NoteI’m very pleased to announce that Comeback was recently chosen by the TriState YA Review Group as a 2011 Book of Note. (In case you’re wondering, the TriStates are Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey.)

Part of Orca’s popular Soundings series, Comeback is a high-low thriller which follows 17-year old Ria Patterson as she struggles to cope with her parents’ divorce, her father’s disappearance and subsequent accusations of criminal wrong-doing. Booklist said it “folds drama and suspense into a story that carries echoes of our country’s current financial woes…it’s premise will quickly grab readers, who will empathize with Ria’s disillusionment and split-second, bad decision making.”

I’ve also written three other books for this wonderful series: Dead-End Job, I.D. and B Negative.
