“Fearless and bold, Crystal Hurdle’s witty, multivocal novel in verse reads like a cross between Judy Blume and Into the Wild, with a dash of Gilbert and Sullivan thrown in. Teen readers will find here a forthright examination of issues of power and responsibility not usually included on the high school curriculum.”—Cathy Stonehouse, author of Grace Shiver
Crystal Hurdle teaches English and creative writing at Capilano University in North Vancouver. She is the author of the poetry collection After Ted & Sylvia and her poetry and prose has been published in many journals, including Bogg, Canadian Literature, the Dalhousie Review, Event, Fireweed, and the Literary Review of Canada.
