Alice Kaltman‘s book WAVEHOUSE, due out June 15th from Fitzroy Books, was spotlighted in The School Library Journal in a special article about books featuring strong female athletes. They say: “YA sports fiction is hard to find—especially books that feature nuanced ­female characters. From the brutal world of professional tennis to the peaceful artistry of surfing, the high-action environments featured in these titles will engage any athlete. Plus, the protagonists also deal with typical coming-of-age themes that will resonate with all teens.” Preorder WAVEHOUSE here, at your local bookstore, or on one of those bigger, slightly evil places that shall not be named.
