About the Author
Kate Pentecost was born and raised on the Texas/Louisiana state line, where there are more churches, pine trees and alligators than anything else. She has worked in teaching, indie publishing, anti-censorship advocacy, and (her favorite) hand-selling children’s books at NYC’s famous Strand Bookstore. She has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and has studied with Susan Fletcher, Louise Hawes, A.S. King, Micol Ostow, and Nova Ren Suma as well as adult authors such as Ken Liu and Antonya Nelson. Elysium Girls was her debut.
From NOVL Nation
“This story captivates the reader from the first page and keeps a steady and consuming pace throughout, making it highly devourable. The characters really shine in this story, particularly for the obstacles which they must overcome and the way they come into their own.”
“Phew. I devoured this book in less than two days and for good reason; it took me completely bur surprise. So rarely do we get a story that reflects the beauty and tragedy of its cover. This fast-paced story is going to take the YA world by storm. Give it all the attention, all the bookstagram features. THIS BOOK!”
“Damn! This was a work of art!”
