Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* “Self-deprecating humor abounds in this debut novel that pulls no punches about the experience of depression and anxiety for its teen protagonist. . . . Captivating introspection from a winning character.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Sixteen-year-old James Whitman has been yawping (à la Whitman) at his abusive father ever since he kicked his older sister out of the house. James’s painful struggle with anxiety and depression—along with his ongoing quest to understand what led to his sister’s exile—make for a heart-rending read, but his wild, exuberant Whitmanization of the world and keen sense of humor keep this emotionally charged novel buoyant. A Morris Award Honor Book.

Synopsis:

A sleepy, God-fearing community in Alabama erupts in chaos when a flamboyant artist from New York City has visions of Jesus.

Synopsis:

A brand new paperback edition of the novel that put Han Nolan on the map

Synopsis:

A teen learns to appreciate his unique family and friends in this novel by National Book Awardand#150;winning author

Synopsis:

A16-year-old boy attempts to save himself by writing poems, hugging trees, and figuring out what it takes to be a good brother. James experiences the highs and lows of depression as he tries to figure out how its possible to survive, even when everyone else seems to be doing all they can to make a kid feel crazy.

Synopsis:

A neo-Nazi teen is transported back in time to World War II Poland, where she is now a Jewish girl in a Nazi ghetto.

Synopsis:

She may be poor, abused, and self-destructive, but Leshaya is determined to become a famous singer like Etta James.

Synopsis:

Leshaya is a survivor. Rescued from the brink of death, this child of a heroin addict has seen it all: revolving foster homes, physical abuse, an unwanted pregnancy. Now, as her tumultuous childhood is coming to an end, she is determined to make a life for herself by doing the only thing that makes her feel whole . . . singing.

Han Nolan pulls no punches in this hard-hitting story of a girl at the bottom who dreams of nothing but the top.

Synopsis:

A sleepy, God-fearing community in Alabama erupts in chaos when a flamboyant artist from New York City returns to her hometown for an artistic experiment. “A fresh voice and an enigmatic subject combine to make kids engage in an activity they probably dont do much-contemplate.”-Booklist
