LIZ COLEY

FRIDAY, APRIL 5; 7 PM

LIZ COLEY will introduce her new young adult novel, Pretty Girl-13, a psychological mystery about a girl trying to piece together the story of her kidnapping and captivity. In it, we meet Angie Chapman, a girl with multiple personalities, who was 13 when she ventured alone into a wooded area while on a Girl Scout camping trip and disappeared. She returns home when she is sixteen, thinking she is still 13 years old because she remembers nothing that happened to her during those three missing years. Can the answers be found hidden in the unseen people locked in her mind? The story emphasizes the healing power of courage, hope, and love.
