A highly anticipated novel, and its talented author at East City Bookshop!
Meet LB Gschwandtner for a reading, signing, and discussion to celebrate the release of her highly anticipated novel, The Other New Girl at East City Bookshop.
In a fresh take on the prep school lit genre, sassy sophomore Susannah Greenwood enters Quaker prep Foxhall School and soon finds herself in an impossible situation when the other new girl, an outcast she has befriended, mysteriously disappears.
Advance praise for The Other New Girl has built unique excitement for its release.
We swim in the soup we ve made, the protagonist of LB Gschwandtner s compulsively readable novel, The Other New Girl, observes. The ingredients of this dark and disturbing coming-of-age novel include adolescent cruelty, religious hypocrisy, and the sadder-but-wiser perspective of the adult who dares to look back. Gschwandtner asks the question Do we ever really get over high school? Like me, other readers may ponder that question for themselves as they race through this harrowing and heartbreaking tale of the aftereffects of power misused. I was riveted. Wally Lamb, author of six New York Times best-selling novels, including The Hour I First Believed and She s Come Undone, and was twice selected for Oprah s Book Club
