We're thrilled to share more advance praise for Catherine Alene’s debut, THE SKY BETWEEN YOU AND ME (Fire/February 2017).

9781492638537-m“Eating disorders are an attempt to control tangible aspects of life (such as body, weight, shape, size, exercise, and food) when intangible aspects (such as emotions, stress, belonging, neglect, and trauma) seem out of control. Alene doesn’t sensationalize eating disorders, rather authentically portrays the internal struggle they pose while respectfully refraining from assigning numbers (pounds, inches, calories, grams, clothing sizes, time) that may be triggering for suffering and recovering readers alike. And she does it with a narrative style that is not only highly engaging, but lyrical. This combination makes an intensely haunting story also a beautiful one.—Sarah Alexander, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

"An emotional, heartfelt, and absolutely beautiful story. I wanted each character to be my best friend. Reckless Hearts was so real, with gorgeous writing that kept me hooked from first page to the last."—Jennifer Blackwood, USA Today bestselling author of The Rule Book

"Three alpha men, a baby, and a take-no-nonsense heroine = a recipe for a hilarious and heartfelt book."—Jennifer Blackwood, USA Today bestselling author of The Rule Book

We have received another blurb for Catherine Alene’s debut, THE SKY BETWEEN YOU AND ME, which Sourcebooks Fire will publish in February 2017:

9781492638537-m“Barrel racer Raesha can beat the clock, but can’t outrun her obsession with being lighter, leaner, faster. In evocative verse, author Catherine Alene whittles Raesha’s world down to bone, as her need to be thin carves away her flesh, friends, and family. Honest, unflinching, and painfully beautiful, THE SKY BETWEEN YOU AND ME is a gift of understanding and hope to those who struggle and the ones who love them.—Catherine Linka, author of A GIRL CALLED FEARLESS

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Booklist recently posted a stellar online review of The Storybook Knight by Helen and Thomas Docherty.

9781492638148-m"A plot summary doesn’t do justice to the childlike charm and wit of this colorful picture book. The rhythmic, rhyming stanzas roll along at a good pace, and the dialogue offers potential for crowd-pleasing dramatic interpretation in read-aloud sessions. Acrylic ink drawings with bright watercolor washes define the expressive characters and create the lively medieval settings. This appealing picture book features an endearing hero and a good balance of tension and humor."

9781492638537-m“Catherine Alene's THE SKY BETWEEN YOU AND ME is a breathtaking and unforgettable debut.

“Stephanie Saldana's astonishing gifts of perception and potent description make A Country Between feel like the country we would all prefer to live in. These elegant pages, replete with mystery, surprise, secret messages tucked inside every day, and the tender love of parents for one another and for the precious children they nurture and educate in Jerusalem, a most difficult, crucially beloved city, make us homesick for something better.”—Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Habibi
