Join Not Your Mother's Book Club™ for a launch party celebrating award-winning author Dana Reinhardt's latest great work, We Are the Goldens. Nell worships her older sister, Layla. They're one unit, intertwined: Nellayla. As Nell and her best friend, Felix, start their freshman year in high school, on Layla's turf, there's so much Nell looks forward to. But the year takes a very different turn. Layla is changing, withdrawing. She's hiding something, and when Nell discovers what it is, and the consequences it might have, she struggles.
Dana will be in conversation with local debut author Whitney Miller, author of The Violet Hour. Some call VisionCrest the pinnacle of religious enlightenment.
Others call it a powerful cult.
For seventeen years, Harlow Wintergreen has called it her life.
As the adopted daughter of VisionCrest's patriarch, Harlow is expected to be perfect at all times. The other Ministry teens must see her as a paragon of integrity. The world must see her as a future leader.
Despite the constant scrutiny, Harlow has managed to keep a dark and dangerous secret, even from her best friend and the boy she loves. She hears a voice in her head that seems to have a mind of its own, plaguing her with violent and bloody visions. It commands her to kill. And the urge to obey is getting harder and harder to control . . .
Praise: "The Violet Hour takes readers on a dark, delicious thrill ride . . . [a] gripping debut."--Gwenda Bond, author of The Woken Gods
