books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

A “Moving” pair of reviews for UNDERWATER!

underwater-coverCongrats to Marisa Reichardt, whose debut Underwater just received two early reviews! First, from Booklist, who said “Debut author Reichardt smartly reveals the source of Morgan’s agoraphobia — a school shooting — very gradually, which, along with the sweet romance with Evan, urges the plot forward. Morgan’s… story of growth and redemption will be rewarding for readers who love character-driven novels”.

And then, from Kirkus, who called it “A moving, reflective exploration of grief, trauma, and how individuals find their paths toward resilience.” The full Booklist review will be live on October 15th, but you can read the full Kirkus review today! Please feel free to congratulate Marisa on Twitter at @youngadultish, and check out our cool new sidebar ad celebrating the pull quote!

Underwater comes out on January 12, 2016 from Farrar Straus Giroux.
