Starred review from Booklist for The Memory Jar!

Hoole’s lucid writing respects its readers, and the story and its resolution are both heartbreaking and hopeful. With sensitivity and artful pacing, Hoole’s superb novel is a natural fit for fans of Sarah Dessen.

The Memory Jar gets a cover!

I’m thrilled to show you the final cover for my 2016 flux title, The Memory Jar! I love the somber beauty of this image — the hint of sun in the trees, the suggestion of menace in the snow angel on the surface of the lake. I can’t wait to see it in person!
