Press Release (June 2012)
Nicole Quigley Makes a Stunning Debut with Her Genesis Award-Winning Coming-of-Age Novel that Deals with Bullying, Suicide, and Faith.
“This story is not about suicide. But you should know that when I was seventeen, the only boy who ever called me by my full name took his own life. It was the first time I ever saw a mistake that was permanent, that couldn’t be undone with whiteout or atoned for with an after-school detention.” — Missy Keiser (excerpt)
Nicole Quigley’s breakthrough novel tells the story of Melissa Keiser and three boys, whose lives intertwine in a tragic and hauntingly poetic coming-of-age tale that will have fans of YA fiction abuzz long after the book’s emotional end.
Tackling the sensitive and widespread issues of teen suicide, drug use, sex, and faith, LIKE MOONLIGHT AT LOW TIDE (Zondervan; $15.99; September 2012) does so in a new and sophisticated way – providing a fresh alternative to the teen pop novels and stories of love triangles rampant in the YA market.
