"Anger is a Gift is an explosion of fury and revolution. Mark Oshiro's beautiful and brutal debut proves that not only can anyone be a hero, but great change comes when the heroes work together."―Adam Silvera, New York Times bestselling author of They Both Die at the End
“Amy Spalding grew up in St. Louis, but now lives in the better weather of Los Angeles. By day, she manages the digital media team for an indie film advertising agency. By later day and night, Amy writes, performs, and pets as many cats as she can.” Amy will be here with Mark Oshiro for her book, The Summer of Jordi Perez.
"The Summer of Jordi Perez is a confectionary delight. From lovely romantic date nights to secret makeout sessions to utterly relatable friend drama, this is the happy queer-girl romance I've been longing for since I knew enough to long for happy queer-girl romance." —Robin Talley, New York Times bestselling author of Lies We Tell Ourselves
