I was delighted to be asked by Bonnier Zaffre to join the blogtour for Lisa Selin Davis’ new YA novel ‘Lost Stars or what Lou Reed taught me about love’

Published by Hot Key Books, a division of Bonnier Zaffre, on the 6th October 2016, Lisa’s novel is a story about love lost & found and deals with the subject of teenage grief.

A poignant, coming-of-age novel.

Lisa has kindly written a guest post for us about the ‘Do’s and Don’ts of Writing’ which I do hope you enjoy.

I have also read & reviewed Lost Stars which you can read here:

‘Maybe they are not gone, those stars.

Maybe they’re just lost…

Maybe they’re just trying to find their way home.’

Lost Stars or what Lou Reed taught me about Love is the latest novel from NY writer Lisa Selin Davis. Author of the grown-up novel Belly, this is Lisa’s debut YA novel set in the 1980s and charts the path of a young girl, Caraway, as she deals with the grief after the death of her sister.

As Lisa describes it ‘ A novel, based on a New York Times’ Modern Love column, based on a story told at The Moth, based on my terrible teenage years.’
