Keris Stainton is a relatively new voice on the YA book scene (her debut, Della Says OMG, was published last year), but she writes with such an assured voice it’s hard to believe she hasn’t been doing this forever.
Her second book, Jessie Hearts NYC is published on 7th July, and here’s the blurb:
Jessie’s just arrived in New York, hoping to forget about her awful ex.
New Yorker Finn is in love with his best friend’s girlfriend.
They might be perfect together, but in a city of eight million people, will they find each other?
Sounds good, no?
Okay, I admit it. I read this book while it was still in draft form as Keris is a friend of mine. Still, I wouldn’t tell you it was brilliant unless it were true. And it is.
To celebrate the book’s release, Keris has kindly agreed to be interviewed here – on this very blog. I will also be running a giveaway (of the book) in her honour.
Watch this space!
Really enjoyed reading this and it has made me want to go back to New York too.
