Recommendations for Ages 13+
From the Author:
Looking for a signed, personalized copy of REBEL SPY? I’ve got ya covered! My local independent bookstore, Rakestraw Books, and I would love to make it happen.
I’m also really excited to offer one-hour Zoom chats to book clubs that preorder six or more copies through Rakestraw Books. Please use the coupon code SPY20 when checking out. This will be a limited offer, so order soon. I will work with you to schedule a convenient time to conduct the chat.
I think REBEL SPY would make for a great July read, as it’s historical fiction set in the time when America was fighting for its independence. I also think it would make for a great mother/daughter read!
I hope you’ll consider signing up. I’m really looking forward to chatting with you, and your book club about books, writing, life as an author, and whatever else you’d like to discuss!
Tied for my favorite YA book of 2019. Hilarious and heartwarming and memorable, about growing up Korean American in SoCal with parents who act like they’re still in Korea. -- Susan

Written in verse, Xiomara finds her voice in the form of slam poetry. She has a lot to say, even though she knows her mother would not agree with her. -- Anastasia
Two friends, growing up on the border of the US and Mexico, decide to take a road trip in the pursuit of finding out the truth to a personal mystery. A wonderful coming-of-age story with strong friendships, real social issues, and powerful voices. -- Anastasia
American Royals explores what life would be like if the U.S. had a royal family. The unique premise mixed with the drama and romance made this so much fun! I highly recommend it for fans of the Gossip Girl and Princess Diaries series. -- Tyrinne
