Some love from PW for XVI

November 5th, 2010 • Kate

thumb_XVI_CVRYou could wait til Monday’s print edition of Publishers Weekly, or you can join me now in celebrating a review of Julia Karr‘s debut XVI which says:

“Gender politics and sexual awareness play prominent roles in Karr’s thoughtprovoking dystopian debut. A solid, enjoyable story.”

PW also says “Karr’s story has much to say about the increasing sexualization of teenagers.”

Gratz to Julia and XVI! if you haven’t been following her XVI Weeks to XVI online promotion, do check it out for some fabulous behind-the-scenes info about the book.

    I want to read this book. I went to her website after my query last week and read her first chapter. Wow.

    Intense and if someone would have grabbed me, or the phone would have rang while I was reading it, I would have hit the ceiling.

    Gook luck and congrats!

    Yay, Julia — congratulations! I would say it made me want to read your book, but I already knew that I did! 😉
