join us with author Catherine Gigante Brown for the release of her latest novel Better Than Sisters
A powerful, moving coming-of-age novel that blurs the line between Young Adult and Women's fiction, BTS begins in 1970s Brooklyn and morphs to the present day, following Desi Ruiz and Cici Piccolo as they blossom from shy teenage misfits to confident women. Desi and Cici experience first crushes, come to terms with crippling grief, feel unabashed joy and discover who they are. From encounters with the neighborhood perv to teen crushes, sexual awakening, surviving Catholic school (and puberty!), BTS is a story of true, pure, intense friendship that is lost--and found.
