From the Author
Volunteering with homeless teens and children in poverty, I've seen how life throws tough issues at teens on a daily basis. And I love it when I hear from students from across the country who tell me how Wreath made them look at life differently, helping them make better choices.
Teenagers today are smart and resilient, and "Wreath, A Girl" has a strong female lead character who reflects my admiration for children. I'm excited that the novel is being taught in schools and discussed in book clubs.
