Well, she was just seventeen

February 01st, 2018

Self-esteem for older teens is hard to come by. In Brooke Carter’s first novel for and about teens, Another Miserable Love Song (Orca 2016), a girl down on her luck looks to join a punk band. Two concerns nag the heroine: will she find new purpose in punk? And will the drummer with a killer smile break her heart? In Carter’s second, Learning Seventeen (Orca $9.95), smart and sarcastic Jane Learning feels she is been held captive in a Baptist reform school called New Hope Academy. A gorgeous bad girl with fiery hair, Hannah, persuades her there’s hope outside the walls of the prison Jane prefers to call No Hope. 978-1-459815-53-7
