An exuberant endorsement has just come in from Howard Frank Mosher, author of A STRANGER IN THE KINGDOM:
Polly Lightfoot, the heroine of Don Bredes’s equally horrifying and inspiring POLLY AND THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD, is the most likeable, not to mention the most resourceful, teenage character in American fiction since Huck Finn. Like Twain’s classic, and all truly great “Young Adult” fiction, POLLY AND THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD can and will be loved by readers of all ages. Unforgettable characters (including a wise, talking raven), non-stop action, timely social commentary and one gorgeous sentence after another from beginning to end, POLLY AND THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD has it all.
Advance review copies will be circulating soon. Reading and signing events are in the works at the Galaxy Bookshop in Hardwick, Green Mountain Books in Lyndonville, both Northshire bookshops, in Manchester and in Saratoga Springs, and more.
On top of that, Green Writers Press will be representing the novel at the Bookstock Literary Festival this weekend in Woodstock. Here is the one-sheet hand-out:
