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!

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!
