You may be wondering what I’ve been up to for the past year plus, and you would be right to wonder. First off, I have a book release to announce, but it’s not written under the name Jamie Sobrato. I’m writing as Jamie Kain for my debut young adult novel, The Good Sister. This novel will arrive in stores October 7, 2014, and if you enjoy reading young adult or women’s fiction, be sure to check it out. Although it’s labeled as a novel for teens, I think it has crossover appeal for women’s fiction readers as well. (Plus there are two romantic subplots for the romance junkies among us.)
The Kinsey sisters live in an unconventional world. Their parents are former flower-children who still don’t believe in rules. Their small, Northern California town is filled with free spirits and damaged souls seeking refuge from the real world. Without the anchor of authority, the three girls are adrift and have only each other to rely on.
Rachel is wild. Asha is lost. Sarah, the good sister, is the glue that holds them together. But the forces of a mysterious fate have taken Sarah’s life in a sudden and puzzling accident, sending her already fractured family into a tailspin of grief and confusion. Asha has questions. Rachel has secrets. And Sarah, waking up in the afterlife, must piece together how she got there.
Jamie Kain brings us The Good Sister, a stunning debut young adult novel about love in all its joyful, painful, exhilarating manifestations, and about the ties that bind us together, in life and beyond.
