  • Overview
  • Stephanie Oakes will celebrate the publication of her new YA novel, The Arsonist.

    Molly Mavity, whose father is a convicted murderer awaiting execution, is on the hunt for her missing (presumed dead) mother. A mysterious package leads Molly to Pepper, a Kuwaiti immigrant with epilepsy, failing grades, and a quirky canine. Together, the two teenagers must solve a decades-old mystery: the 1989 murder of Ava Dreyman, a resistance fighter in East Berlin.

    Diversity and mental illness are two gripping themes that resonate throughout the pages. Poignant moments, witty humor, and complex first-person narratives make this novel a wonderful breath of fresh air.
