Behold the gorgeous 🇨🇿 Czech 🇨🇿 edition of The Fountains of Silence!😍 In the Czech Republic, all of my books are published by the fabulous CooBoo. Visiting Prague for the book festival a few years ago was a memory I will never forget. Of course none of this would be possible without my longtime editor Tereza Eliášová and my award-winning translator Petr Elias. I love them to pieces. Photo: Tereza Eliášová

Time flies! 2021 will mark the 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the publication of Between Shades of Gray! 🎉
To celebrate, we've got several special things planned, including a beautiful new cover for the U.S. edition of the Penguin Teen paperback, pictured here. So grateful to the readers, students, educators & librarians who have embraced this story and history and have shared it with others. Stay tuned for some *very* exciting updates regarding the 10th anniversary!😍
