When she is caught in the backseat of a car with her older brother’s best friend, Deanna Lambert’s teenage life is changed forever. With subtle grace, complicated wisdom, and striking emotion, this debut novel captures a girl’s struggle to redefine herself.
The winner will be announced at the National Book Awards Benefit Dinner and Ceremony in Manhattan on November 14. Of course, we’re a little prejudiced because we think she’s terrific and we love the book. Good luck from all of us at TKE, Sara; we’re rooting for you! If you haven’t had a chance to meet her, Sara will be at the Utah Humanities Council Book Festival at the Downtown SLC library on Saturday, October 27th.
