EDGES in FSG book catalog!

Happy Wednesday! It felt like summer today in NYC - in fact, it was warmer here than it was on vacation in Myrtle Beach! We arrived home late yesterday afternoon discombobulated, disgruntled and disorganized, but what joy I later found when I opened my mail and discovered a copy of FSG's Books for Young Readers Fall 2010, where EDGES has it's own terrific display page! Here's their copy:

Two teens, battling addiction and grief, learn how to let go of the past and embrace the wide-open future

After his mother dies and his father begins drinking again, Luke decides to leave New York City. Though he's just sixteen, he finds a job and friends in fantastic, otherworldly Moab, Utah - the last place his family was happy together.

Back in New York, eighteen-year-old Ava finally admits she has a drinking problem. But life doesn't automatically get easier when she join Alcoholics Anonymous.

When circumstances - or fate - bring Ava to Moab as well, she and Luke must both figure out how to heal their families and themselves.

What do you think? Does it make you want to read it? I'm happy with it - I find myself bumbling over my words when people ask me what EDGES is about - I MUST get better at this!

I also received another happy present in the mail - a copy of the re-release of my grandmother, Madeleine L'Engle's book, And Both Were Young, which will officially publish later this month on April 27th! I was lucky to be able to write the Introduction for this book, as well as The Joys of Love, published posthumously two years ago. Uh-oh - look at the time! I'd better save further comments of ABWY for a future blog as it is getting late!
