9781492626183-M“Cheery, multi-textured illustrations highlight the sheer versatility of hugs one can give: a small hippo offers a one-handed, behind-the-back number as it eats cereal at the breakfast table, a ladybug uses all six limbs to cling to its parent, and two snakes entwine in a cozy, circular embrace…[Duksta’s] reassuring message comes through loud and clear.”

We're thrilled to share a STARRED Kirkus review for A Country Between: Making a Home Where Both Sides of Jerusalem Collide by Stephanie Saldana (978-1-4926-3905-3; Feb. 2017)!

9781492639053-m“Saldaña builds an impressive sense of genuine emotion, and she vividly explores the array of life in that seething section of Jerusalem…a serene memoir in which the author takes valuable time to regard the character of the Palestinian people and their way of life.”

This follows a positive review from Publishers Weekly:

“This candid, tenderly rendered love story begins in a Syrian monastery, where Saldaña (Bread of Angels), a Texas-born journalist, falls for Frédéric, a French novice monk...Saldaña describes in wonderful detail how, as their family expands, they stay in a place where so little makes sense, guided solely by their hope in the future.”

The STARRED Kirkus review will appear in the December 15 edition.

Kirkus has given Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders (February; 9781492633846) a fantastic review!

9781492633846-M“Anders elevates the "sex heals" narrative common in romance with lovely writing and deeply emotional intimate scenes. Importantly, Uma's recovery is her own achievement, aided by the women in her life, not something bestowed on her via the attentions of a gorgeous man. An incredibly sexy, heartbreaking, and intense romantic debut.”

The Hundred Lies of Lovett (ISBN 9781492636083; January 2017) by Chelsea Sedoti is featured in Justine Magazine’s December/January 2017 print issue:

9781492636083-m“A dark, comedic mystery about a girl’s quest for proof that ultimately helps her discover some truths about herself. We officially love Hawthorn. One minute, our heart was breaking with her raw, aching loneliness, then we were laughing with her crazy sideways wisdom. Like Thorny, this book is offbeat, smart and awesome.”
