Three cheers for Chris Struyk-Bonn and Whisper!

In books debuts / Apr 1, 2014

Today was a happy day for several reasons, but here’s one of the biggest: my friend (and critique partner) Chris Struky-Bonn is now a published author! Her novel, Whisper, was released by Orca Book Publishers today (April first).

 

Here’s the copy on the back cover:

In the not-too-distant future, in a society that kills or abandons anyone with a disability, Whisper has found a loving family far from the world’s cruel gaze. When she is ripped from her forest home and forced to become her brutal father’s house slave, her only solace is her music. Whisper has all but given up hope of ever feeling safe or loved. Then she is sent to the city, to Purgatory Palace, where other “rejects” gather. Could it be that home and love are closer than she thought?

 

Powell’s Books has copies of Whisper at pretty much all of their branches and I was happy to be able to take this photo of Whisper out in the wild:

    Yay! You were right – WHISPER is at the downtown Powell’s on an outer shelf display. I took a picture today. So strange.
