Upside down, straight on, or in
the periphery of your vision: you can’t shake that unsettling feeling when
glancing at the striking book cover of Girls on Fire. We agree: there’s

be gazing upon this strange composition. Person...

More of Robin's books…
“They had battled and bloodied one another, they had kept secrets, broken hearts, lied, betrayed, exiled, they had walked away, said goodbye and sworn it was forever, and somehow, every time, they had mended, they had forgiven, they had survived. Some mistakes could never be fixed - some, but not all. Some people can't be driven away, no matter how hard you try. Some friendships won't break.”
Robin Wasserman, Greed

“But things don't just fall apart. People break them.”
Robin Wasserman, The Book of Blood and Shadow

“Nor did I need anyone's pity, but I would accept it with grace, because I have been well trained. Rudeness was a sign of weakness. Grace stemmed from power, the powere to accept anything and move on.”
Robin Wasserman, Skinned
