YA book launch: Dear Twin by Addie Tsai
Houston-based Addie Tsai launches her first novel, Dear Twin, a crossover YA that dives into queer teen love, mixed race identity, and being an identical twin. Addie will be twinned with Montreal authors *Shanice Nicole* and *Kama La Mackerel* and drinks and snacks will pair well! Reading with Q&A to follow.
Synopsis: Poppy wants to go to college like everyone else, but her father has other ideas. Ever since her mirror twin sister, Lola, mysteriously vanished, Poppy’s father has been depressed and forces her to stick around. She hopes she can convince Lola to come home, and perhaps also procure her freedom, by sending her twin a series of eighteen letters, one for each year of their lives.
When not excavating childhood memories, Poppy is sneaking away with her girlfriend Juniper, the only person who understands her. But negotiating the complexities of queer love and childhood trauma are anything but simple. And as a twin? That’s a whole different story.
