Kat Rosenfield’s debut novel AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE, edited and published by the great Julie Strauss-Gabel, has been nearly universally praised by critics. A starred review in Publisher’s Weekly called it “exquisitely written;” Kirkus’s starred review called the book “utterly compelling.”
It is all that and more, a lyrical and keenly observed novel that is also a true page-turner. Like, imagine if Sara Zarr and I had a really awesome baby.
I’ll admit to a bias toward books Julie publishes—she has good taste, but more importantly she’s a great editor. But AMELIA ANNE is just damn good, and I hope it finds the audience it deserves.
I believe there are still readers for top-class literary YA fiction. And I know a lot of those readers are here on tumblr, so check out AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or from your local bookseller.
A rec from John Green is more than enough to get me to read a book! On it!
