  • Me (Moth), Amber McBride
    Feiwel & Friends, 9781250780362, August 17, 2021 (Young Adult)

    “Incredible. Poetic. Jaw dropping. It's hard to find the words to describe how amazing this book is. Two lost souls finding each other and themselves, paired with a heart-stopping ending you will never see coming. Just read this book.”

    Kelsy April, Bank Square Books, Mystic, CT and Savoy Bookshop & Cafe, Westerly, RI

    “One of the most beautiful books I've ever read. The verses flow so smoothly. Each poem could stand on its own but together they make a heartbreakingly beautiful story of loss, grief, and finding one's self. Stunning debut!”

    Kim Brock, Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH


    “A novel in verse whose poems both stand alone and weave a narrative of American trauma and the incredible people who live and die with it. With deep empathy, emotional heart, and a near-perfect road trip, Moth and Sani come into their own.”

    -Hannah Amrollahi, Bookworm of Omaha, Omaha, NE


    Me (Moth) is a surprising story of loss, invisibility, and, finally, being seen. Moth’s story starts when her family dies in a car accident and she begins to feel unseen by her classmates and her remaining family member. When she meets Sani, a musician with depression and a yearning to road-trip through his ancestor’s lands, they will discover love, joy, and a surprising connection to their ancestors.”

    René Kirkpatrick, University Book Store, Seattle, WA
