Young Adult

  • Izzy + Tristan, Shannon Dunlap
    Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 9780316415385, March 12, 2019 (Young Adult)


    “Putting her own spin on the age-old story of star-crossed love, Shannon Dunlap’s incredible first novel is a solid reminder as to why I continue to read and sell books on a daily basis. I challenge anyone out there to read the prologue of Izzy + Tristan and not fall head-over-heels for this lovely debut.”

    Javier Ramirez, The Book Table (Oak Park, IL)


    “In this fresh retelling of Tristan and Iseult, Shannon Dunlap weaves a contemporary version that is just as intense, jarring, and full of romance as the original. There is an instant connection when Izzy moves to Tristan’s neighborhood: the doctor girl and the chess boy—could anything be cuter? When Tristan’s cousin comes into the picture and wants Izzy for himself, things get a little complicated. Both readers that are familiar with the 12th-century tale and those who aren’t will be quick to enjoy it, although perhaps with a bad bout of butterflies.”

    Jen Pino, Vroman’s Bookstore (Pasadena, CA)
