"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge."
—Booklist, starred review
You know how sometimes you read a novel that is so inventive, so warm-hearted, and so uplifting that you want to share it with the world?
Oh my gosh, are you going to be feeling this way when you can get your hands on Mylisa Larsen’s debut novel, PLAYING THROUGH THE TURNAROUND! Through an ensemble cast of eighth graders, Mylisa perfectly captures that time when kids’ worlds are opening up and they are forming strong opinions and learning to stand up for what they believe in, but the grownups around them haven’t quite caught up. It will make you cry and cheer at the same time.
Anne Hoppe at Clarion snapped up the project in a preempt, and it’s scheduled for fall 2022, which will be upon us before we know it.
Huge congratulations, Mylisa!
