Remember when I went to Boston for ALA Midwinter? I met Jame Richards whose debut novel, Three Rivers Rising, is coming out on April 13th. Before I went, I was lucky enough to get an ARC of the novel. I was eager to read it because of its beautiful cover, because Jame is a Class of 2k10 member, and because she is published by Random House, like me.
So, as soon as it came in the mail, I opened it. I'll admit, then I kind of groaned, discovering it is a novel in verse. And, it is historical fiction. Which, to me, is two strikes against it.
But reading it was entirely groan-free. In fact, it had be me gasping. At one point, I read a beautiful line that had me picturing a moment that I held my breath until it passed. Then when I tried to read on, I had to stop and share that moment with someone, anyone. I walked into the next room and read it aloud to my husband who nodded solemnly in the wake of the power.
