Sourcebooks, that wonderful, force-to-be-reckoned-with independent publisher who published my YA Novel, WHILE HE WAS AWAY, contacted me to say that the book is part of the NOOK Under $2.99 Assortment from now until 11/22! Super happy about this . . . it’s a special thing indeed when a publisher keeps a book alive in this way!
If you have a NOOK, and you’re interested in YA Novels, I’d love it if you’d snap it up! Or if you have a teenager who has a NOOK, and you’re interested in stocking them up with GoodReads for the holidays, well, that would be great too!
Here’s how School Library Journal described WHILE HE WAS AWAY:
“In the summer before her senior year, while her boyfriend serves in Iraq, Penna tries to stay supportive as she copes with a new job and gets to know her estranged grandmother, a World War II widow. The first-person present-tense narrative, set in small-town Oklahoma, has a surprising and satisfying conclusion.”
