"Since 1990, the Barnes & Noble booksellers who handpick books for our Discover Great New Writers™ program have connected readers with incredible, unforgettable stories from little-known writers. Many of the nearly 1,900 literary talents showcased in the Discover program have become household names, enjoying great success with readers, critics and prize committees..."
From the Hollywood Reporter: "Former African relief worker Anderson's debut novel is the first YA pick for Barnes & Noble's Discover Great New Writers program in six years (John Green was the last)."
*"[T]he nicely twisted climax is totally believable, and readers will be sorry to leave Tina, whose fierce loyalty to her family drives her actions."
