Escape – Foreshadow: Stories to Celebrate the Magic of Reading and Writing YA

October ‘New Voice’ selected by NYT Bestselling Author, Melissa Albert.

BookPage Best Book of 2020, Young Adult
Junior Library Guild Selection, 2021

Created by New York Times bestselling authors Emily X. R. Pan and Nova Ren Suma, Foreshadow is so much more than a short story collection. A trove of unforgettable fiction makes up the beating heart of this book, and the accompanying essays offer an ode to young adult literature, as well as practical advice to writers.

What makes these memorable stories tick? What sparked them? How do authors build a world or refine a voice or weave in that deliciously creepy atmosphere to bring their writing to the next level? Addressing these questions and many more are essays and discussions on craft and process by Nova Ren Suma and Emily X. R. Pan.

This unique compilation reveals and celebrates the magic of reading and writing for young adults.

Available in paperback and ebook from Algonquin Young Readers

Out Now:

“‘Escape’ is a mesmerizing account of love, loss, and revenge, entwined with a mythic family history. It’s all spikes and rising oddity, a sharp-toothed thing that nods to Helen Oyeyemi and Kelly Link, but does its own thing.”

Melissa Albert, New York Times bestselling author

Some of the best thrillers are ones in which you know what’s coming, but you are excited for it to happen anyways. Escape is one of those stories, where it builds and builds, dropping snippets along the way like breadcrumbs, preparing you for the deep satisfaction you feel when your outcome happens. Escape weaves history and tradition with a big, bustling modern family of women who are connected to a mysterious pouchette.
