“A dazzling debut novel about resilience, courage, home and family.”—Rebecca Stead, Newbery Award-winning author of When You Reach Me

SoHo, 1981. Twelve-year-old Olympia is an artist—and in her neighborhood, that’s normal. Her dad and his business partner Apollo bring antique paintings back to life, while her mother makes intricate sculptures in a corner of their loft, leaving Ollie to roam the streets of New York with her best friends Richard and Alex, drawing everything that catches her eye.

Then everything falls apart. Ollie’s dad disappears in the middle of the night, leaving her only a cryptic note and instructions to destroy it. Her mom has gone to bed, and she’s not getting up. Apollo is hiding something, Alex is acting strange, and Richard has questions about the mysterious stranger he saw outside. And someone keeps calling, looking for a missing piece of art….

Olympia knows her dad is the key—but first, she has to find him, and time is running out.

Lauded by critics in five starred reviews, All the Greys on Greene Street has been called “a remarkable debut” and “a triumph.”

LITERARY MYSTERY WITH AWARD POTENTIAL, IN THE VEIN OF WHEN YOU REACH ME: Like the beloved Newbery Winner, this book has a gritty setting of NYC in the early ’80s, award-worthy writing, and lots of twists and turns that will keep readers guessing until the end.

POIGNANT STORY: Olympia’s journey is filled with a mix of humor and heart-tugging moments. The book feels like a modern classic, like the work of Holly Goldberg Sloan and Wendy Mass.

SAVVY AUTHOR TO BUILD: Laura Tucker is a ghostwriter of New York Times bestselling adult nonfiction (though this is her debut novel) and co-owner of two of Brooklyn’s trendiest restaurants, Buttermilk Channel and French Louie.

This STORY ABOUT ART AND ARTISTS will bring out the artist in every reader and inspire creativity in even the most left-brained soul.

BEAUTIFUL PACKAGE: We have commissioned New York Times bestselling illustrator Kelly Murphy to create a lovely wrap jacket and twenty interior spot illustrations, adding value and beauty to make this a more gifty purchase.

Laura Tucker has coauthored more than twenty books, including two New York Times bestselling memoirs. She grew up in New York City around the same time as Olympia, and now lives in Brooklyn with her daughter and husband; on Sunday mornings, you can find her at the door of Buttermilk Channel, one of their two restaurants. She is a cat person who cheats with dogs. All the Greys on Greene Street is her first novel.
