KA Holt Knocks Another Book BEYOND THE RAILS!
Rhyme Schemer
K.A. Holt

One thing you should know about Kari Anne Holt: She is a novel writing machine. No, really! Her most recent book, RHYME SCHEMER, came out from Chronicle in October to rave reviews, and she has two more books still forthcoming.

For those of us who have gotten to know and love her rich characters, quirky wit, and moving storylines, there's even more good news ahead. This week, Kari has sold yet another book, again to the luminous Tamra Tuller at Chronicle.

In BEYOND THE RAILS, Kari examines the journey of two young runaways who leave their homes south of the border to sneak across into the US. However they pictured this land of plenty, however, the reality that awaits them is a lot harsher—and more dangerous—than they ever expected.

Exploring the pertinent subject of young illegal immigrants, Kari Holt paints a vivid and unforgettable story. Look for BEYOND THE RAILS in 2016—it's one you won't want to miss!

Congratulations, Kari!
