Author Acrostic ♥ Laura Anderson Kurk

Thank you Jennifer Murgia for introducing me to Laura Anderson Kurk! She writes contemporary books for young adults. Her debut novel Glass Girl is an unconventional and bittersweet love story...

Survives and


meRcy &


When Meg Kavanagh finds herself in the unthinkable role of grieving sister, she discovers some harsh truths—parents aren’t perfect, life’s not always sweet, and the dead don’t write back. Worried she might have caused Wyatt’s death, Meg folds her heart into a box. Her famous mom grieves by slowly disappearing, and her dad copes by moving them to a small town in Wyoming.

What she finds in Wyoming blindsides her.

His name is Henry, and he’s a rancher’s son who pulls Meg into his larger-than-life world and shows her that being sensitive is not an excuse to sit this one out. Meg wants to be brave like Henry because the best things in life—like falling in love and finding mercy—require uncommon courage. And Henry has a secret that changes everything.
Glass Girl is available April 1 from PLAYLIST FICTION. Check out the sequel, Perfect Glass, coming June 2013!

  1. Thanks again for inviting me! How'd the purple turn out today? One of these days, I'm gonna go pink, I think...

  2. After I bought a biography of Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) I got interested in acrostics and made several myself because he was so clever with them. They are a bit like writing haiku--easy to do, not so easy to do well.

    The only young adult books I have read lately (and these a couple of years ago) are the books by Suzanne Collins in The Hunger Games trilogy.
