In her newest YA novel, VASSA IN THE NIGHT, Sarah Porter has merged the dark, forested world of Russian folklore with the gritty, urban streets of Brooklyn to vibrant and dramatic effect.
In the enchanted kingdom of Brooklyn, the fashionable people put on cute shoes, go to parties in warehouses, drink on rooftops at sunset, and tell themselves they’ve arrived.

tangled up, where the anger is pushed down. Curse & Kisses is a
true artist with words. He reaches deep inside faces his own anger and
pain and puts it all down on paper than turns it into something that
can reach millions of people in the form of music. "Lies" puts it all
