TALENTED AUTHOR: (You) Set Me on Fire was a Quill & Quire Book of the Year, as well as a Rolling Stone Top 40 YA Novel. This One Summer (co-created with Jillian Tamaki) was a Printz Honor Book, a Caldecott Honor Book, a Time Top Ten YA Book of the Year, and a PW Best YA Book of the Year.
DIVERSE CHARACTERS: Diversity in YA is a hot topic. Monty has two moms and a gay best friend, and the story does not focus on their coming-out stories—their sexuality is just part of who they are. This is what readers have been calling for.
UNIQUE VOICE: Tamaki’s Montgomery Sole narrates the story with refreshing wit and caustic teenage humour that makes this book an engaging read right through to the last page.
STRONG REVIEWS:Early reviews of Montgomery Sole have been very positive, including praise from Quill & Quire, Kirkus Reviews and Publishers Weekly!
CO-PUBLISHER: Macmillan (US).
PRAISE FOR Saving Montgomery Sole:
“…a whirlwind of a story with a surprising twist and an endearingly messed-up heroine.”—Quill and Quire
“Offbeat and authentic—an uncommon treat.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Montgomery’s slow confrontation with reality creates a realistic, satisfying arc, and Tamaki’s economical storytelling results in dimensional characters whose struggles feel viscerally real.”—Publishers Weekly
“While the themes are mature, the writing and characters are accessible for younger middle school readers; this would make a strong addition to most school or public library YA collections.”—School Library Journal
