What could be more romantic than stories set in the Wild West? Horses, check. Wranglers, check. Falling in love despite the risks, BIG check. In Kristen Chandler's THIEF OF HAPPY ENDINGS, we get all of this and more when teenage Cassidy is shipped off to a Wyoming ranch, where she meets a broken cowboy and confronts her fears about getting back in the saddle. This book is deeply personal for Chandler, who works with at-risk youth as an equine instructor. In this post, Chandler explains how horses can heal and inspire us, and why she chose to write this story now.
If you're a young adult booklover, you're probably already familiar with BookCon, the event where storytelling and pop culture collide. At BookCon, readers of all ages can interact with the authors, publishers, celebrities and creators of content that influence everything we read, hear and see. With interactive panels, autographing sessions, storytelling podcasts, special screenings, literary quiz shows and so, so much more, BookCon is the ultimate place to celebrate books.
