Publishers Weekly just gave us a nice review:
Feisty, literate, and uncompromising, the work of Kilstein and Kilkenny stresses the role of a free and independent press as a powerful guardian of democracy.
So go pre-order a copy if you haven’t already done so…
Pre-ordering helps get us on all the fancy book charts!

An afternoon well spent. What are you reading today? #weekendreads #weekend
RG @emilycgraff “The Sweetheart, by Angelina Mirabella, is a story you’ve never read before.
It’s a story about a teenage girl who leaves her home in 1953 to make a name for herself in the ring. It’s a story about champions, heroes and villains, of giants, little people, and devoted, screaming fans. It’s a story about wrestling, but it’s also a story about growing up. As she comes to understand the consequences of her choices, she must figure out who she really wants to be.
In wrestling, every character falls neatly into one of two categories: hero or heel. But in life, those divisions are less clear.
The Sweetheart struggles to find her way. How she triumphs, how she fails, and how she manages, somehow, to endure when the odds are never in her favor—her actions hold promise: if she can, maybe I can too. I don’t come by this feeling often in reading. To inspire this kind of empathy is the mark of a breathtaking talent both rich and varied.
The Sweetheart is my first acquisition for @simonbooks. I can’t wait for you to read it when it goes on sale in January 2015. (But if you’d like an early copy, I know some people…😉)”
