Catching Up with Hannah Moskowitz : Win Invincible Summer

Invincible Summer
1. What are some of your favorite books read in 2011?

My favorite books I’ve read this year so far have been STOLEN by Lucy Christopher and ON THE JELLICOE ROAD by Melina Marchetta, and WEETZIE BAT by Francesca Lia Block.

2. What books would  you have recommended to readers at age 11, 16 and 21?

Such a fun question.
AGE 11: 

The Casson Family series by Hilary McKay (SAFFY’S ANGEL, INDIGO’S STAR, PERMANENT ROSE, CADDY EVER AFTER, FOREVER ROSE--especially the first 3). Also THE OUTSIDERS by S.E. Hinton and CENTER LINE by Joyce Sweeney; I think 11 is a great age for really fantastic angsty stuff. 
AGE 16:

Keep reading YA: THE DISREPUTABLE HISTORY OF FRANKIE-LANDAU BANKS is perfect for 16. Also read adult books. Chuck Palahniuk, Hemingway, John Irving, F. Scott Fitzgerald, anything.  This is a great age for beginning to see the conversations happening between books and across genres. 

 AGE 21: 
Ask me in two years!

Invincible Summer 

  • Reading level: Young Adult
  • Paperback: 288 pages
  • Publisher: Simon Pulse; Original edition (April 19, 2011)
Noah’s happier than I’ve seen him in months. So I’d be an awful brother to get in the way of that. It’s not like I have some relationship with Melinda. It was just a kiss. Am I going to ruin Noah’s happiness because of a kiss?

Across four sun-kissed, drama-drenched summers at his family’s beach house, Chase is falling in love, falling in lust, and trying to keep his life from falling apart. But some girls are addictive....

Hannah Moskowitz writes books, blogs, and stalks publishing news and trends. Her first YA novel, BREAK, about a boy on a mission to break all his bones, came out with Simon Pulse in August '09. Her next book, INVINCIBLE SUMMER, is about growing up at the beach and having sex and learning sign language, April '11, Simon Pulse, and her 3rd YA is GONE, GONE, GONE, spring 2012. She also writes middle grade, and ZOMBIE TAG, about a boy who has to save the world from zombies after he wakes them up to see his dead brother again, is coming in Fall '11 from Roaring Brook Press. Publishing makes her frustrated and confused and indignant and she loves every minute of it. At least most of the time. Official Website
