Read full description of the books:Since the death of his brother, Jonathan’s been losing his grip on reality. Last year’s Best Young Poet and gifted guitarist is now Taft High School’s resident tortured artist, when he bothers to show up. He's on track to repeat eleventh grade, but his English teacher, his principal, and his crew of Thicks (who refuse to be seniors without him) won’t sit back and let him fail.
Read information about the authorConrad Wesselhoeft worked as a tugboat hand in Singapore and Peace Corps Volunteer in Polynesia before embarking on a career in journalism. He has served on the editorial staffs of five newspapers, including The New York Times. He is the author of ADIOS, NIRVANA (2010) and DIRT BIKES, DRONES, AND OTHER WAYS TO FLY (2014), two contemporary young-adult novels from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Wesselhoeft began to write for young adults after meeting the acclaimed YA novelist Scott O’Dell (ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS). "Scott critiqued my early efforts at writing YA fiction. He taught me many things about writing, but one stands out: Writing is about perseverance--never give up."
Wesselhoeft's ancestors were homeopathic doctors to a host of literary luminaries, including Emily Dickinson, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Harriet Beecher Stowe.
His three children are in various stages of university study or career exploration. He lives in West Seattle with a poodle named Django. You can learn more about him at conradwesselhoeft.com and adiosnirvana.com.
