RA Alert: MATHILDA SAVITCH

The first novel, Mathilda Savage, was a librarian favorite at BEA. Prepub reviews continued the enthusiasm, with starred reviews in all four publications.

It’s now getting some media coverage (no mean feat for a debut novel in this season of big names). Holds are few, so you may actually be able to put this one in readers’ hands.

The Wall Street Journal interviewed the author, and put an excerpt online.

The Christian Science Monitor reviewed it. Their reviewer was also taken with it,

Have you met Mathilda? If not, prepare to be – in equal measures – charmed and haunted. Because once you get this precocious teen’s sad, sharp voice in your head, it’s hard to get it out.
