About Boy from Buchenwald

It was 1945 and Romek Wajsman had just been liberated from Buchenwald, a brutal concentration camp where more than 60,000 people were killed.

About Lucky Girl

Problem #2: Let her hoarder mother cash it. The last thing Jane’s mom needs is millions of dollars to buy more junk. Then . . .

The Curse of the Midnight King Cover Reveal

I have something a little different today– the gorgeous cover of The Curse of the Midnight King is finally ready to share. I first heard about this book on Twitter, and I’ve been excited about it ever since. I love fairytale mashups, and I’ve never seen these two put together before. One of the fairytales gets retold a lot, but the other I’ve only seen a couple of times, and it’s one of my favorites. The Curse of the Midnight King will be released by IlluminateYA in November 2021 and it looks like such a great book! Read on for the description and then check out the gorgeous cover.
