Story's End is Here!

PictureAs mentioned in a previous November post, I have amazing and talented friends.  My roommate from college years 1996-1997 (Ravencrest Chalet) & 2001 (Wheaton College), Marissa Burt has announced the release of her sequel to the young adult fantasy, Storybound.

Story's End was released by HarperCollins on April 2nd and I know of at least one young reader who is psyched about this new installment! Marissa's work has been compared to the work of another Wheaton alumna, Madeleine L'Engle's, A Wrinkle In Time series.  

If you're looking for an adventurous, wholesome read, or are looking for the perfect gift for a tweeny-bopper, this series would be it!  Hopefully, I'll be able to purchase my own copy of Story's End shortly and delve into this fun-filled fantasy world of fairy-tale-characters-in-training.  

Marissa, I don't know how you find the time to write with three young boys in what I'm guessing is a pretty active household and still remain looking so cool, calm, collected, and youthful. You are a marvel.  ;o)  You always did manage your time well!  Congrats on another successful release my friend!
