Excited to Read…..Pearl by Jo Knowles

I am SOOOOO excited to read this book by my favorite writing professor!! Jo is an incredible writer, teacher and human being. Congrats, Jo, on your third book release! If this is anything like Lessons from a Dead Girl & Jumping Off Swings, I am in for a treat. Check out all the fabulous reviews so far! Hoping to get a review copy of the next one to review here….. 🙂  I am just bummed I can’t make it to the launch party in VT this Saturday 😦

Bean (née Pearl) and Henry, misfits and best friends, have the strangest mothers in town. Henry’s mom Sally never leaves the house. Bean’s mom Lexie, if she is home, is likely nursing a hangover or venting to her friend Claire about Bean’s beloved grandfather Gus, the third member of their sunny household.

Gus’s death unleashes a host of family secrets that brings them all together. And they threaten to change everything—including Bean’s relationship with Henry, her first friend, and who also might turn out to be her first love.

Hardcover, 224 pages
