Eyes Open (2024)
Lyn Miller-Lachmann
"A revealing, timely glimpse into Portugal's frighteningly recent history and a passionate, authentically teen portrait of one young woman finding her voice, claiming her power, and writing her way to freedom."

The Dare Sisters (2020)
(Dare Sisters, book 1)
Jess Rinker
"This book makes me want to throw on a pirate hat, hop on a skateboard, and roll down the sandy streets of Ocracoke hunting for treasure. Full of intrigue and packed with heart, The Dare Sisters is a delight!"

Blood Water Paint (2018)
Joy McCullough
"Blood Water Paint is a deftly layered portrait, at once intimate and universal."
