IF YOU LIVE ANYWHERE NEAR PHOENIX YOU HAVE A MISSION.
I'LL BE AT CHANGING HANDS BOOKSTORE IN TEMPE ON THURSDAY, MARCH 7TH AT 7PM. I CHALLENGE YOU TO PACK CHANGING HANDS WITH HUMANS TO KICKOFF MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND. #43inAZ
If you want to pre-order or want a personalized, signed book of mine, now is the time to get one.
I know why you're here.
The day has come! A HUGE thank you to Little, Brown's Liz who worked tirelessly on getting this cover to be just right. I love it and I hope you all do, too.
First, the back cover copy so you can get the gist of what going on here.
Gerald Faust knows exactly when he started feeling angry: the day his mother invited a reality television crew into his five-year-old life. Twelve years later, he’s still haunted by his rage-filled youth—which the entire world got to watch from every imaginable angle—and his anger issues have resulted in violent outbursts, zero friends, and clueless adults dumping him in the special education room at school.
Nothing is ever going to change. No one cares that he’s tried to learn to control himself, and the girl he likes has no idea who he really is. Everyone’s just waiting for him to snap…and he’s starting to feel dangerously close to doing just that.
In this fearless portrayal of a boy on the edge, highly acclaimed Printz Honor author A.S. King explores the desperate reality of a former child “star” who finally breaks free of his anger by creating possibilities he never knew he deserved.
