Pitch Perfect Finalists
A Curiosity of the Solar System
Marlowe Kana (Volume 1)
In Wolves’ Clothing
Down to No Good
The Art of Three
Although the first half was slow, it all makes up for the heart-wrenching second half of the novel. This is a great read for those looking for a light read packed with enough emotions.
I am in the sixth generation of my family to live in New Jersey. I was going to go to NYU. I was going to do it. I was going to be a city girl. Wasn’t for me. I’m too Jersey. I like the suburbs. I like being able to have the quietness while also being able to go and do things. The city is too loud to live in all the time but to visit it’s great and only a quick train ride away. I say I have the best of every world here. I can work on the beach, go to the city, visit the library…go anywhere really, whenever I please. I was raised in an entrepreneurial household. I grew up in my parents’ carpet store from a week old. My parents always encouraged me to follow my dreams. I went to a specialized high school for students who wanted to be doctors, but, deep down I always enjoyed literature. I had my first national story published when I was 12 years old, had a position working for Scholastic at 13, and self-published my first book when I was 17, so literature was always a big part of my life. I started taking it really seriously, though, when I was in college. As an English major, I won some great awards for my writing in college and that encouraged me to write my book which was published by a midsize publisher and success. The success of my book made me want to help others with their books.
