The Luckiest Scar on Earth

"Readers are along for the ride as Charlotte gets to know the complex, surprising people surrounding her—and the true meaning of that lucky scar on her father's face. Think Carl Hiaasen’s Hoot meets Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl."
Ana Maria Spagna lives and writes in Stehekin, Washington, a very small town in the North Cascades accessible only by foot, ferry, or float plane. She teaches creative writing in the MFA program at Antioch University, Los Angeles. Spagna writes for magazines about nature, work, and life in a small community, and is the author of several award–winning nonfiction books, including 100 Skills You'll Need for the End of the World (As We Know It), a humor–infused guide for how to live more lightly on the planet.

The Blue Hour
Writing with passion for rural lives and the natural world, Laura Pritchett, who has been called “one of the most accomplished writers of the American West,” graces the land of desire in vivid prose, exploring the lengths these moving, deeply felt characters —some of whom we’ve met in Pritchett’s previous work — will traverse to protect their own.
