Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on And Then Things Fell Apart by Arlaina Tibensky.
I know that's not much of a description, but I heard Arlaina read a section of this book at the NYC Teen Author Festival and it had me laughing out loud. It doesn't sound like it's going to be an especially funny book, but Keek is unintentionally hysterical (she's also writing while she has a fever and chicken pox). She's stuck at her grandmother's house who believes all technology is evil, hence the typewriter. Keek is dealing with her parent's divorce, boyfriend issues, and is obsessed with Sylvia Plath. I'm really looking forward to reading this one.
And Then Things Fell Apart will be available July 26th.
