Book-Signing Scheduled Dec. 12

December 11, 2017

Christine Hurley Deriso, an award-winning author of contemporary young-adult fiction, will sign copies of her latest novel, “All the Wrong Chords,” Tuesday, Dec. 12 from 6-8 p.m. at the Book Tavern, 936 Broad Street, Augusta, Georgia.

Included with each book sold will be a gift card for the music featured in the novel (“All the Wrong Chords” by the Beastings).

Refreshments will be served, and Deriso will discuss the writing of the book during the event.

The book involves eighteen-year-old Scarlett Stiles, who is desperate for a change of scenery after her older brother, Liam, dies of a drug overdose. But spending the summer with her grandfather wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Luckily, Scarlett finds something to keep her busy: —a local rock band looking for a guitarist.

Booklist cites the novel’s “fresh and believable” subject matter, while Kirkus notes its “swift and light narrative flow.” School Library Journal says, “Deriso skillfully handles the topic of drug addiction, humanizing this national epidemic while also creating a believable and breezy love story.”

Copies are available wherever books are sold.
