Leah Thomas signs Wild and Crooked

Leah Thomas

Critically-acclaimed author Leah Thomas is a local San Diegan as well as an educator and avid cosplayer. Her debut novel Because You’ll Never Meet Me was a William C. Morris YA Debut Award finalist, and she is also the author of When Light Left Us, and Nowhere Near You. Wild and Crooked, Leah’s latest work, is a brilliant YA story told in three voices and six “acts.” The memory of a murder keeps the small Kentucky town of Samsboro divided. Kalyn-Rose’s family has never been forgiven for the murder of a local golden boy decades earlier, her own father accused and convicted of the crime. Gay, impoverished, and feminist, Kalyn-Rose is a frequent target of harassment. On the opposite side of the class divide, Gus is called “gay and confused, the disabled kid,” or “the kid whose dad got murdered.” When a budding friendship begins between these two, their pasts begin to threaten everything. Can they overcome prejudice and discover who Gus’ father’s real killer is?
