WRONG WAYS DOWN available now!


"...in Wrong Ways Down, Kane masterfully peels back layers unseen through Chess' point of view. Through Terrible's eyes, Kane walks readers on a thin line, riding the rough and yet poetic cadence of how he speaks and thinks--and in doing so, she reveals a layer to him, Chess and the underbelly of his world not seen before."

--Lauren Dane, NYT & USA TODAY bestseller

Oh, wow. That makes me so sad. I loved her books as well. Well, I guess I still love them, but it's sad to think there will be no more new stories by her.

I just found out a week or so ago. I am saddened. I have been a big fan since the "Light a Penny Candle" days.

I liked the movie of Circle of Friends. Now I want to read her books. It's a pretty good life, if so many people are sad to see you go.

I began reading her books with The Copper Beech. Then went on to Circle of Friends. Great slice of life books, esp. her early ones. Loved Evening Shade the best.
