Written In The Stars

A collection of stories by

From the master of thrillers and the supernatural comes a collection of thirteen short stories that have never been published before in book form. Written in the Stars contains Lois Duncan's earliest stories--one published at the age of thirteen--from the tale of a young soldier suffering from PTSD, to a group of children (humorously) tormenting their temporary guardian. This unique collection--far from the suspense novels Duncan later became noted for--contains stories that originally appeared in magazines such as Seventeen and American Girl. They are a marvelous portrait of the depth and breadth of Duncan's work, covering topics such as the war in Korea, sibling relationships, and the joy and pain of first love. As a special bonus, Lois has followed each story with a brief essay describing her work and life at the time the story was written. Written in the Stars is a must-have addition to the library of work from this spectacular and groundbreaking young adult author.
Lois Duncan is the author of over fifty books, ranging from children's picture books to poetry to adult nonfiction, but is best known for her young adult suspense novels, such as Stranger With My Face and I Know What You Did Last Summer. She has been awarded the Margaret A. Edwards Award, presented by the School Library Journal and the ALA Young Adult Library Services Association for "a distinguished body of adolescent literature." In 2009 she received the Katharine Drexel Award, awarded by the Catholic Library Association "to recognize an outstanding contribution by an individual to the growth of high school and young adult librarianship and literature."
