The big box of books finally arrived. Pub date is only a week away (May 11th). I’m proud of it; in this case, mostly for the Substance Use Disorder storyline. Mary’s older brother has problems with drugs and it’s tearing the family apart. There’s even a scene where a librarian administers Narcan. This book is a prequel/sequel to Bystander.
It’s a strange feeling when a book goes out, especially in the last few years, met by a distracted & indifferent world. The collective shrug. My hope, as always, is that readers find it and enjoy the reading experience. Upstander is a 2021 Junior Library Guild Selection.
May one good book lead to another.
