We interrupt your regularly scheduled "How Writing Feels" to bring you a special book news bulletin.
There's a book out today. An awesome book. A magical, colorful, unique, crazy book, written by one of my dearest, colorfulest, craziest writer friends, Natalie Whipple. And this colorful, unique, crazy book is called TRANSPARENT.
Plenty of teenagers feel invisible. Fiona McClean actually is.
An invisible girl is a priceless weapon. Fiona’s own father has been forcing her to do his dirty work for years—everything from spying on people to stealing cars to breaking into bank vaults.
After sixteen years, Fiona’s had enough. She and her mother flee to a small town, and for the first time in her life, Fiona feels like a normal life is within reach. But Fiona’s father isn’t giving up that easily.
Of course, he should know better than anyone: never underestimate an invisible girl.
You want this book, right? You want this book BAD, right? I thought so. Because you're awesome, and this book is awesome, and I know you two will get along like WHOA.
Because of how much you two will get along, I'm GIVING AWAY a SIGNED COPY of TRANSPARENT tomorrow! Why tomorrow? Because Natalie's launch party is TONIGHT at The King's English bookstore here in Salt Lake City. So all of you awesome people who are in SLC have the chance to come get your own signed copies TONIGHT, and you should. You totally should. Because, like I said, awesome. Lots of it.
