For my 23rd birthday, I went back to Hilton Head. Even though I had such vivid memories of it as a child, it was amazing to go back as an adult—and that trip absolutely inspired the Hilton Head scenes in WING JONES. If you’ve read it, you might know what scene I’m talking about 😉
A sweeping story about love and family from an exceptional new voice in YA. With a grandmother from China and another from Ghana, fifteen-year-old Wing Jones is often caught between worlds. But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing’s speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.
