MWF Paperback CoverI’m so excited to announce that Sharon Biggs Waller’s A MAD WICKED FOLLY has been chosen by the Young Adult Library Services Association for its 2015 Best Fiction for Young Adults List!

FOLLY’s already received some great acclaim, featured on *three* of Booklist’s Top Tens. And on the heels of the YALSA Best FIc announcement, Sharon’s debut novel has made the 2015 Amelia Bloomer list as well!

Sharon has a pretty rad “how’d you find your agent?” story, which you can read here. (We had internet kismet.) Her next novel, a y.a. historical from Viking Books, is due out next winter.

Meanwhile, you can find Sharon at her website, on Facebook, and on twitter.

Check out the critically acclaimed A MAD WICKED FOLLY on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Goodreads.
