The Someday Daughter (2024)
Ellen O'Clover
"The Someday Daughter delivers a fast-paced and emotional story about figuring out who you really aren't, after a lifetime of being told who you are. A surprise gut-punch punctuated with a sweet forehead kiss, an ice pack, and a promise that life might not be predictable, but it'll be what it'll be. Perfect for anyone who, like me, has spent years chasing the high of The Truth About Forever."
The Search for Us (2023)
Susan Azim Boyer
"The Search For Us is an emotional story about the journey of figuring out not only where you fit in the world but how you came to be in the present, all at the same time. Henry and Samira are working to unravel the Choose Your Own Adventure story of their lives, where every choice has been made by someone else, and the repercussions of those choices weigh heavily on their present-college, relationships, and responsibilities most of all. Not one character in this story is perfect, and their layers are peeled away with each passing chapter, proving they are much more than they seem, both to the reader and to Samira and Henry. Susan Azim Boyer has crafted a moving story about the complicated emotions that come with an absentee parent, and about healing and anger and all the feelings in between the two, all while threading through hints of her signature humor. This is a story that will have you snort-laughing in surprise while holding back your tears."
What Happens After Midnight (2023)
K L Walther
"A complete delight! This is a swoony second chance love story intertwined with a comedy of errors, performed by a lovable, vivid ensemble."
