Books of Wonder is proud to present launch for KHERYN CHANDLER and her debut middle grade novel Hurricane Child.

Hailing from St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands, and earning an MFA in creative writing from the New School, former Books of Wonder staff member KHERYN CALLENDER debuts her new heartfelt novel Hurricane Child. It is a nuanced coming-of-age tale set against a vivid Caribbean backdrop. Join us and author KHERYN CALLENDER on Wednesday March 28th at our 18 West 18th St. store for the launch of her new novel Hurricane Child.

Being born during a hurricane is unlucky, and 12-year-old Caroline from St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands has had her share of bad luck lately. She is hated and bullied by everyone in her small school, a spirit only she can see won't stop following her, and -- worst of all -- Caroline's mother left home one day and never came back. But when a new student named Kalinda arrives, Caroline's luck begins to turn around. Kalinda, a solemn girl from Barbados with a special smile for everyone, becomes Caroline's first and only friend -- and the person for whom Caroline has begun to develop a crush. Now, Caroline must find the strength to confront her feelings for Kalinda, brave the spirit stalking her through the islands, and face the reason her mother abandoned her. Together, Caroline and Kalinda need to set out in a hurricane to find Caroline's missing mother -- before Caroline loses her forever.

In this touching new novel, we go on a journey with a young girl trying to make sense of the world around her, searching for her mother, and ultimately finding herself. We hope you can join us and author KHERYN CALLENDAR for the launch of her debut novel Hurricane Child. Ages 8-12. Wednesday, March 28th, 6-8pm.
