SCBWI connects writers and illustrators across the world.
I’m in the USA to speak at the Kane Miller Sales Conference in Tulsa Oklahoma about my young adult novel ‘Butterflies’. How amazing is that – I never thought I’d get to Tulsa. The song bursts into my mind:-
24 hours from Tulsa by Gene Pitney
I plan to sing it all the way to LA, then Fort Worth Dallas, zooming into Tulsa.
‘Butterflies’ received a starred review from the School Library Journal.
“This hopeful, heartfelt novel will give teens an understanding of what it means to have a reason to be self-conscious. Librarians won’t be able to keep it on the shelf.”
– School Library Journal (Starred Review)
Kudos to Gervay for painting the reader a picture of a self-reliant teen girl who does not depend on a boy to make herself feel valuable. Highly recommended for libraries- school, public and personal- who want to add to their girl power collections.
