For an emotional evening of YA, come out to see in conversation Catherine Linka and Sarah Tomp.
Catherine is the author of Sparrow’s Story: A Girl Defiant, and the dystopian duology A Girl Called Fearless and A Girl Undone. Her latest YA novel, What I Want You to See, has been called “Tense, smart, and engaging… a stunning portrait of deception, artfully peeling back layers of secrets to reveal a meticulously crafted crime.” (Elle Cosimano, author of Nearly Gone) After losing both her mother and her home, winning a scholarship to California’s most prestigious art school seems like a fairy-tale ending for Sabine Reye. But she soon finds that the cutthroat world of visual arts is nothing like she imagined. On the verge of losing her merit-based award, a grad student named Adam gives her the help she needs, while also leading her to become party to a crime so well plotted that no one knows about it but her.
Sarah is the author of YA novels The Easy Part of Impossible and My Best Everything. In The Easy Part of Impossible, Ria Williams is an elite diver on track for the Olympics. But while her parents are focused on the trophies, they don’t notice how strict Coach Benny is on Ria, including the bruises. Through a rekindled friendship with a boy named Cotton, Ria finally sees through the abuse that her coach had inflicted on her. When Coach Benny offers Ria life-changing diving opportunity, she must make an impossible decision.
