When I first started at Simon & Schuster, Vikki's first novel in America, Friday Never Leaving, was just about to go to print. (It was originally published by the wonderful Text Publishing in Australia.) We had a second book under contract, and I was eager to see what Vikki came up with, having fallen in love with her writing.
Like Friday Never Leaving, In-between Days is filled with gorgeous writing and unforgettable characters, particularly Jacklin, the novel's protagonist. Vikki is most interested in giving voice to teens who rarely get to be the hero, and Jack--a directionless high-school dropout--fits that bill perfectly.
Krista Vossen worked with Guy Shield to capture the lazy days of summer on the cover.
