We All Looked Up
"We All Looked Up is a triumphant debut--this generation's The Stand. It is at once troubling, uplifting, scary, and heart-wrenching, and written with so much compassion for our fragile hold on the fleeting here and now. A glorious, wonderful, completely unforgettable novel." - Andrew Smith, author of Winger and 100 Sideways Miles
I'm mostly level-headed, particularly when it comes to my job. But after I extended an offer for this novel, I endured a pretty constant state of panic as I waited to hear back from the agent. I cannot put into words the sense of relief and joy that washed over me when the agent informed me that the project was mine.
Lucy Ruth Cummins designed the gorgeous cover and compelling interiors, and she shot and designed the cover for We All Looked Up: The Album.
