THE RIGHT & THE REAL: cool stuff (and I'm headed to Portland!!!)

Check out the trailer for my writer-bud Joëlle Anthony's THE RIGHT AND THE REAL, a gritty, funny book about a girl who is kicked out because her dad joins a cult:

I got to be an early reader for R&R, and here's my totally uncensored, unpolished reaction:

"Joëlle, I am the slowest reader known to man, but I was totally sucked in by R&R. I wasn’t able to put it down! I loved it."

Read it! You'll love it, too!

Buy at Powell's, BN, Amazon, your local indie

OH and this is super exciting: I get to join Joëlle for a RIGHT & REAL/DON'T BREATHE A WORD event in Oregon on May 5th!!!

Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Beaverton, OR

From Joëlle Anthony, author of Restoring Harmony, comes the teen novel The Right and the Real (Putnam), which follows 17-year-old Jamie after she is kicked out of the house for refusing to join the church of the Right and the Real and must find a way to survive on her own. In Holly Cupala's novel Don't Breathe a Word (Harper Teen), Joy is suffocating from severe asthma, overprotective parents, and an emotionally-abusive boyfriend when she escapes to the streets of nearby Seattle and falls in with a "street family" that teaches her to use a strength she didn't know she had.

Hope to see you!


  1. Thanks so much! I'm so looking forward to our event in May!

  2. I've been looking forward to The Right and the Real for a while now, can't wait to read it!
