TEACH ME

BREATHE MY NAME

DAYS OF LITTLE TEXAS

THROAT

 

I never thought I would become so emotionally involved ... I had to keep reading. In truth, it was the writing that blew me away. So many pages of this galley are now dog-eared—marking passages that I know I'll want to re-read.

BETH REYNOLDS, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY GALLEY TALK

The first chapter alone is worth the price of the book and will be rubbed in our noses repeatedly as a model of how to grab a reader and write intelligently for teens. It made me green green green with envy and feel free to quote me on that.

SUE CORBETT, MIAMI HERALD BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Nelson's teen characters emerge as unique, fully realized people with ... emotional dimensions that distinguish them from familiar young-adult caricatures. Vivid, unnerving ... incandescent writing.
