House of Girls Free on Amazon

In celebration of my almost being free to write again and the New England SCBWI Conference this weekend that will keep me from obsessing about download numbers (thank you NESCBWI), House Of Girls is free on Amazon today and tomorrow (May 2nd & 3rd). Enjoy!

House of Girls is about being fifteen, falling in love, and getting pregnant—all of which is a real problem if it is 1961, you’re Jewish, your boyfriend isn’t, and you are determined to keep your baby—especially if your parents want you to “fix” the problem.

At the end of 1961, life is still suspended in the ideals of the 1950s, but it is only a short leap into the turbulent 196os, where young women fought for and won, independence for themselves, their children, and their right to love on their own terms.
