Keira is figure skating on very thin ice. She can land an axel, no problem, but the leap she's about to make looks likely to sweep her feet right out from under her. Markotic takes us inside Keira's head where the words are -- the awkward, sometimes hilarious, painful and poignant words -- which she dare not say. And then when she does ... well, it does more than break the ice. Rough Patch is a YA problem novel that turns into a love story. But wait for the end of the program: it?s more thrilling than a quad! Tim-Wynne-Jones, author of The Emperor of Any Place
Rough Patch is a perfect triple axel of a story, with electric writing, unforgettable characters, and a climax that will leave you gasping. Markotic gets what it?s like when none of the labels people have for you fit, and when you wonder if there?s something wrong with you because you don?t want them to fit. I fell hard for this book. Melanie Little, author of The Apprentice's Masterpiece and Confidence
Rough Patch has a lot going for it. Keira's voice as a character is incredibly authentic; she?s shy, awkward, silly, and self-deprecating. She?s easily frustrated with her parents and constantly worried about making her best friend proud -- by not being a prude. The tension between being her authentic self, and being someone who at the very least won?t be the laughing stock of the school, is consistently rendered throughout the novel. Lambda Literary
