4 Reasons why I want to read The November Girl by Lydia Kang
1)The cover is just gorgeous. With its blue and black colors this pale girl in twirling gown draws my cover junkie’s eyes like a magnet. I just need this beauty on my shelves. Think about all the striking bookstagrams!
2)The synopsis foreshadows heartache, magic and torn feelings. I love books in shades of grey when deeply different main characters will collide. A half human girl full of storms meets a very human and terrified boy.
3)That quote “Pain is so easy. It’s what we do best.” Promises of violence, wounds and hurt feelings. Hope for redemption and a better future. Alludes to possible abuse and dark secrets. Just give me my tissues already.
4)Last but not least high praises from these authors:
“Complex and haunting, The November Girl looks for the light in the darkest of places. Powerful and evocative.” – Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of The Female of The Species
“With her trademark beautiful prose, Lydia Kang’s love story between a troubled boy and a literal force of nature is exquisitely drawn and heart-wrenching. Set in the unforgiving autumn forests on Lake Superior’s Isle Royale, you’ll be rooting for Hector and Anda to find strength in each other despite very real threats beyond their control. Magical and thrilling, The November Girl will haunt you long after you finish.” – Maurene Goo, author of I Believe In A Thing Called Love
“The November Girl should be savored by lantern, under a wool blanket on a chilly rainswept night. Brimming with Lydia Kang’s smart prose and evocative imagery, The November Girl is an atmospheric, haunting tale of love, sacrifice, and self-acceptance that builds like a rogue wave toward its stunning conclusion.” – Elle Cosimano, award-winning author of Nearly Gone
“An intense and beautifully written romance that had me bracing myself until the final page.” – Brenda Drake, NYT bestselling author of Thief of Lies
“Absolutely stunning in its beauty! I’ve never read a book quite like The November Girl. You don’t want to miss this unique and mesmerizing tale.” – Pintip Dunn, NYT bestselling author of Forget Tomorrow

I am Anda, and the lake is my mother. I am the November storms that terrify sailors and sink ships. With their deaths, I keep my little island on Lake Superior alive.
Hector has come here to hide from his family until he turns eighteen. Isle Royale is shut down for the winter, and there’s no one here but me. And now him.
Hector is running from the violence in his life, but violence runs through my veins. I should send him away, to keep him safe. But I’m half human, too, and Hector makes me want to listen to my foolish, half-human heart. And if I do, I can’t protect him from the storms coming for us.
“Pain is so easy. It’s what we do best.”
