A Girl Named Charlie Lester

charlie_lester_cover_carissa_halston“The razory hip Charlie sallies forth from a hateful adolescence to find sex, self-awareness and then, in its many guises, the thing called love…sweet but not saccharine, emotionally generous…Halston lets the characters’ actions speak for them and, as a result, well-rounded personalities emerge. Charlie is a gem…a lovely piece of female confessional.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Strong female bonds, witty dialogue and an acute sense of what it’s like to be young today make Charlie a great read.” — Nina Lary, Curve Magazine
