Join author Aimee Herman on tour for her debut Y.A. novel Everything Grows! On May 10th, she’ll be at Bluestockings Bookstore in Lower Manhattan for a reading/signing, followed by live performance of Aimee’s band, Hydrogen Junkbox.
ABOUT EVERYTHING GROWS
Fifteen-year-old Eleanor Fromme just chopped off all of her hair. How else should she cope after hearing that her bully, James, just took his own life? When Eleanor’s English teacher suggests students write a letter to a person who would never receive it to get their feelings out, Eleanor chooses James.
