“SNOWSISTERS offers a delightful and much-needed opportunity for LGBTQIA readers to find themselves starring within the pages of a novel, but the message is a universal one:  We are the architects of our own stories, and we are the ones who decide when and where these stories are told.  A wonderful, important debut.” – Jodi Picoult, NYT Bestselling Author
