The arrival in publishing of Danielle Evans, a graduate of the Iowa Writers Workshop who is still in her 20s, has been anticipated with the same enthusiasm that sports phenoms are welcomed into the majors. And with good reason. The author's voice, "brave the way you are when you don't know what you have to lose" (NY Times Book Review), never lets her laser focus stray from the challenges of growing up in the 21st century—even if she tends, occasionally, to lead the reader instead of relying on her obvious gift for language. Her characters are strong, vulnerable, wise, naive, brash—and always human. A writer to keep an eye on, Evans has a novel in the works. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
