Every book is just as important to the last. Catherine Stine has published many amazing books both under her name-Catherine Stine- and her pen name- Kitsy Clare. But one thing is sure, she's in love with each of her books. And there's bound to be some artistic flair in each book! In Heart in a Box, our heroine, Joss is very creative. She's got superb artistic talent... which she learns is hereditary... from her unknown father. Here's a sneak peak for you....
Back in the apartment, I go in my room and make papier-mâché heart boxes. It’s become an obsession. I have ten now. Still don’t know what to put in them, but the simple act—the wet dog scent of the mushy newsprint, the feel of curving layers around and around, the pleasure of getting the thickness just right—calms me and revs me too. Like that customer said, I could sell them in the store. New inventory. But it’s too raw an idea to discuss with Mom. Up here, in my room, there’s no one to declare it ridiculous to think I can see my father beside me, making boxes too.
Makes your heart melt, right?? Here's the blurb.....
Each heartbeat leads Joss closer to a shocking truth that will change everything.
Joss Olstad wins the fight to switch from her private school to a public high to “find her pieces” she lost when the Indian artist father she never knew died. There, Joss struggles with a slutty friend, who flirts with her new love; Indian Culture Club girls who press her on her past, as well as her stoner mother’s lies back at home. Armed only with her handmade heart boxes that hold private messages, Joss’s search for identity leads her to a scary industrial section of Queens, and a shocking family secret that changes everything.
