  Lawyer-turned-novelist David Baldacci is best-known for his best-selling page-turners. Since the 1996 publication of his debut novel, Absolute Power, Baldacci has published 27 books for adults, plus three for young readers.

His latest is the YA novel, The Finisher. In the book, we meet “Vega Jane.” We are also introduced to Baldacci’s mythical world of Wormwood, where townsfolk, known as Wugmorts, live in constant fear of the dense and mysterious “Quag” that surrounds them.

  Making her young adult fiction debut, Hollis Seamon creates one of the most original voices to appear in young adult literature with Somebody Up There Hates You.

In the book, Richard Casey narrates a story that is unflinching, graphic, heartbreaking, funny, and above all life-affirming in its depiction of what it really means to be a teenager dying of cancer.

Hollis Seamon will participate in Troy Author Day at The Troy Public Library this Saturday.
