Thanks so much to The Reading Date for this awesome review!

Carnival at Bray named a Best Book of 2014 by Kirkus Reviews

Excited to announce that The Carnival at Bray was named by Kirkus as a Best Book of 2014–in four separate categories! BEST TEEN LOVE STORIES, BEST TEEN REALISM, BEST TEEN BOOKS THAT EXPLORE THE TIES THAT BIND, and (and this is somewhat depressing, considering I still think the 90’s just happened) BEST TEEN BOOKS THAT’LL SEND READERS TRAVELLING THROUGH TIME. Thanks to all who have read, bought, and reviewed the novel. It means so much to me.
