YA Isn’t Just for Kids

If you’ve read Steve Brezenoff’s novel The Absolute Value of -1, you know that his so-called Young Adult books isn’t just for kids. The love triangle at the center of the book is something anyone can relate to.

Brezenoff’s newest novel is good reading for grown-ups, too. Brooklyn, Burning tells the story of sixteen-year-old Kid, who lives on the streets of Brooklyn. Kid loves Felix, a guitarist and junkie who disappears, leaving Kid the prime suspect in an arson investigation. Then, a year later Scout arrives, giving Kid a second chance to be in a band and find true love.

M&Q will be hosting a launch party for Brooklym, Burning on Friday, August 26. It’ll be a grownup event with wine and a special musical guest. Pre-order your copy here.–David E
