High schoolers are moving back to in person learning, take a peek into Adrienne Kisner's books. Her titles reveal a fictional but yet accurate depiction of what a high school experience looks like today compared to "back in the day."
"Six Angry Girls" is a story of mock trial, feminism, and the inherent power found in a pair of knitting needles. Raina Petree is crushing her senior year, until her boyfriend dumps her, the drama club (basically) dumps her, the college of her dreams slips away, and her arch-nemesis triumphs.
Adrienne Kisner has lived her entire “adult” life in a college dormitory working in both Residence Life and college chaplaincy. She went to school for a long time so that now she gets to swoop around in a fancy robe and silly hat (like at Hogwarts). She also has an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts (a place like Hogwarts).
Kisner is a birder and knitter with more heart and enthusiasm than actual skill.
Her debut novel, "Dear Rachel Maddow"won a 2016 PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Discovery Award and was one of YALSA’s 2019 picks for Best Fiction for Young Adults. Her second novel, "The Confusion of Laurel Graham," was released in June of 2019.
