Synopsis

Debut novel about a mixed-race family hit by tragedy in 90s Atlanta from a talented young writer. For fans of David Levithan, Jandy Nelson and Rainbow Rowell: a sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.

KATHERINE WEBBER is a young-adult and children's author. She is the author of the critically acclaimed YA novels Wing Jones and Only Love Can Break Your Heart, a moving 'break-up' novel set in the Californian desert. Katherine loves books and travel. (At last count, she'd been to 48 countries and six continents!) She was born in Southern California and spent much of her childhood in the Palm Springs desert and it is still one of her favorite places in the world. She has since lived in Hong Kong, Hawaii, and Atlanta. She currently lives in London with her husband, Kevin Tsang, with whom she co-writes the young illustrated fiction series Sam Wu is Not Afraid. Katherine studied comparative literature at the UC Davis, and Chinese literature and language at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. She has worked at an international translation company, a technology start-up, and a reading charity. She spends far too much time on Twitter, so she invites you to come say hello: @kwebberwrites.

Customer Reviews

Wing Jones is such a little treat landing for you on the 12th of January, and I expect you all to go out and get it because it's brilliant. Wing doesn't know where she fits in - mixed race, outside of the social cliques, awkward, in love with her brother's best friend. When her golden boy brother drunk drives, resulting in the death of passengers and landing himself in a coma, Wing struggles to keep her world together. Wing Jones is an incredibly rich book that honestly deals with tragedy and grief. It is riddled with the hope of small positive moments and makes me want to always be the best me I can be. Well done Katherine Webber and thank you. Thank you to Walker for the review copy.
