My Big Nose And Other Natural Disasters

My Big Nose And Other Natural Disasters
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
(ages 12 and up)

“Complex, likeable, believable characters, and a fresh, appealing fictional voice pull together this very agreeable summer romance.” –Kirkus Reviews

“[T]he contemporary dialogue is rapid and funny, and teens will enjoy Jory’scomic self-deprecation and the way she gets the signals wrong, both while driving and on dates.” –Booklist

“The tougher side of catching a boyfriend is depicted with humor and understanding in this first novel. Nothing goes as planned, and the results are simultaneously painful and hilarious. Salter captures the awkwardness of adolescence while driving home a message about self-acceptance.” –Publisher’s Weekly


Jungle Crossing

Jungle Crossing
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
(ages 10 and up)


"Kat’s snarky comments about her family and fellow tourists . . . are funny . . . This story-within-a-story of young Mulac’s capture and escape from slavery takes up a good part of the novel. It’s an effective device, adding depth to the plot and leading to the readers' understanding of how Kat’s growth and insights come about."--Booklist
