Each year on the first Saturday in May, my local school district hosts the Hudson Children’s Book Festival, a wonderful event that brings young readers together with outstanding authors and illustrators. This year, I had the pleasure of hanging out with booth buddies Kimberly Sabatini (who I first met a couple years back at a Hudson Valley YA Society event) and Tiffany Schmidt, who are both so friendly that I decided to buy copies of their debut novels to share with one lucky visitor to Love YA Lit.
Kimberly’s debut novel, Touching the Surface, is about a young woman who finds herself dead for the third time and realizes that before she can move on to the great beyond she’ll have to reconcile issues with her past life. (Oh yeah, and there’s a love triangle and the cover is super pretty.)
Tiffany’s debut novel, Send Me a Sign, is about a popular teenager who is diagnosed with Leukemia during the summer break before senior year and decides to keep her illness a secret from her friends and classmates. She confides in her longtime neighbor and best friend, Gyver, but the sicker she gets, the harder it gets to keep her secret from the rest of the world. (Also a love triangle here and a lovely cover as well.)
