Katherine Grace Bond's books include the YA novel The Summer of No Regrets (about finding the meaning of life and death when the boy next door may be a movie star in hiding), its companion Luke's Journal (which will let you know whether or not he is), the bestselling The Legend of the Valentine, a children's book about the Civil Rights Movement, and three poetry collections, including Considering Flight (about the uneasy dance between parent and child on the razor’s edge of mental illness.) For her Work-in-Progress, Looking Glass Girl, about a young artist who time-travels to Impressionist France trying to break a family curse, she traveled to France twice to see if she could chase down Manet.

When You Write a Book with the Wrong Cover. Excerpt from The Summer of No Regrets

When I first saw the cover of The Summer of No Regrets, I loved it. The rosy sunset, the beautiful couple, the water--I still love it.

But as time went on, I saw that it didn't reflect what a set out to write--a book about a girl with a deep psychic connection to the natural world she lives in. A book about navigating grief. A book about having a disconnect from the parent who most understood you, Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by Katherine Grace Bond  (?)

“2If he wasn’t who he said he was, wouldn’t he have been honest with me by now?”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“Maybe love is just hormones or endorphins—not some great force all around us. Maybe that’s just nonsense. It’s always seemed to me that love is about being found—the way you might find your missing cat because you knew he had a notch on his left ear and came to the sound of knew he had a notch on his left ear and came to the sound of pebbles rattling in a can. But maybe that isn’t the way things work. Maybe you can only be “found” for a little while. Just like
Joseph and Isuza LaRonge discovered, “forever” isn’t really forever. Everything ends. Everything is lost eventually.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“And I couldn’t love a lie anymore.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“For more than two decades I have tried, honestly and respectfully, to walk the difficult line between the world of Native America and the world of those of us whose people came, willingly or otherwise, to these American shores. I have done this because I believe that we, as Americans, are poorly served by our willful avoidance of the true facts of our national experience, and also because I believe that the lives and ways of the Native American peoples have much to teach us all.

Kent Nerburn, The Girl Who Sang to the Buffalo: A Child, an Elder, and the Light from an Ancient Sky

“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Why do people pay for entertainment? Because they believe that’s not a real human on the screen. Nobody wants to watch someone ordinary. So the Industry takes ordinary people and decorates [them.] It makes [them] more than [they] really are.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“Being mad was ridiculous, but I was—furious: at Dad for talking to spirits when he'd always said religion was unreasonable, at Mallory for making everything mysterious into a psychological problem, and at Mom and Dad for making us choose.
Why couldn't we be Baptist like Tarah's family? Or Jewish like Natalie's? We’d be together in a religion, not at this pot luck Mom and Dad called “spirituality,” where everyone floated around in an individual bubble.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets

“What?" I asked him. "What are you afraid of?"
I thought he wasn't going to answer. Maybe I'd pushed him too far.
"Myself," he said.
I searched his face. "You're not frightening," I said.
He turned towards me and lifted a hand to my cheek. His lips were warm when he kissed me. The joy of it ran all the way down my spine.”
Katherine Grace Bond, The Summer of No Regrets
