Description

Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award Finalist! Cora Matthews, the principal's gloomy goth daughter, is not exactly popular Duke Meyer's type. Still, Duke finds himself inexplicably drawn to her dark eyes and mysterious manner. She makes it clear she doesn't return his admiration, but when a burst appendix lands Duke in the hospital, he and Cora will be forced to come together by the most unlikely intermediary: her eight-year-old brother, Jaime. Duke learns Jaime has brain cancer and little chance of long-term survival. He admires the kid's plucky positivity and wild imagination and offers to write a story about Jaime's make-believe superheroes. So begins an epic tale-that of Ghostboy, Chameleon and the Duke of Graffiti-and a deep friendship between Duke and Jaime. Despite their outward differences, Cora and Duke bond over their affection for Jaime, but unintended betrayal and Jaime's advancing disease threaten to derail their blossoming romance before it can truly take root. Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti is a gorgeous debut novel that will resonate with the thoughtful fans of John Green's blockbuster The Fault in Our Stars.show more

About Olivia Wildenstein

Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father and a Swedish mother. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor's in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer. When she's not writing, she's psychoanalyzing everyone she meets. (Yes. Everyone.), baking up a storm, and attempting not to arrive late at her children's school. Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she's an active member of the writing community. Her debut novel, Ghostboy, Chameleon & the Duke of Graffiti, was penned in the spirit of John Green's and Rainbow Rowell's reflective novels for young adult readers.
