The War Blog is now available in both print and ebook versions
"My father had risen from the dead, and all I wanted to do was slap him. For what? I wasn’t sure. My grandparents had said he was evil and dead. If one part was a lie, was everything else?
Thus begins my debut YA novel set in rural Alaska: a small town in the Interior and in a Native whaling village. Ridiculed by high school boys as “Twig,” Crystal Rose declares war against the objectification of girls as she tries to cope with her mother’s addiction and abandonment. She grows from an insecure, though feisty, teen to a leader who risks her life to be silent no more. This book offers a unique window into teen life in rural and Native Alaska, supplementing the narrative with eight original songs.
