I’ve read Jimmy Cajoleas’ young adult books and thoroughly enjoyed them. Minor Prophets was great, and The Good Demon was so good I’m still angry about it. Cajoleas’ books are dark and don’t pull punches – not for the faint of heart.
Because I so loved his YA novels, and because I’m writing middle grade horror, I decided to pick up Cajoleas’ MG book Goldeline.
I’m literally ten pages in, but am already pretty sure I’ve made a good decision. Cajoleas does a lot of things right in his books, but one thing he always nails is voice. And Goldeline has voice from page one.
So, what are you reading?
Leave a comment and tell me why I should read it, too.
