My first attempts at fiction included a tragic story about a blind Mexican orphan, and a tragic tale about a horse who dies, tragically, in a barn fire.

By the time I got to college and enrolled in a few creative writing classes, I learned the adage, “write what you know,” and began churning out stories about the unhappy love lives of young, thin-skinned, near-sighted, sarcastic, curly haired girls.

I'm so happy that I had the opportunity to read an advance copy of this fantastic book. I was immersed in the deceptively innocent lives of Kagen's three young protagonists. Every Now and Then is a page-turner and a slow burn. Highly recommend!
