Don't miss Katherine's workshop on Saturday, May 4th at 9 am - Getting to Know Your Character Through Passion, Purpose, and Place


“Higgs-Coulthard delivers a gritty, emotionally nuanced read about an unhoused teen searching for his absent father. . . . Utilizing atmospherically tense prose and layered, moving characterizations, this melancholy novel showcases one teen struggling to cultivate a better life for himself while navigating financial precarity and personal betrayal.”—Publishers Weekly

“Empathetic readers will root for Josh and Twig as both are three-dimensional characters who need caring adults to come to their aid. The ending provides a hopeful ending. . . . A smart purchase. . . .”—School Library Connection

“A visceral story. . . .”—Kirkus Reviews
