Jervey Tervalon is a QPBC New Voices Award-winner and critically-acclaimed author of the national best seller Dead Above Ground. Kirkus Reviews calls his sequel, Lita, "Hair-raising and hellish."
After her mother's death, Lita Du Champ is left to care for her younger twin sisters. She decides to take them to the bright, busy city of L.A. to start a new life with her husband and children. But moving to L.A. does not solve her problems. Ten years after leaving, she is called back to New Orleans, where she must face her dying father and deal with the ghosts of her past.
Tervalon climbs inside Lita's mind to reveal a character full of pain and confusion, but also strength. Narrator Myra Lucretia Taylor captivates listeners with her raw emotional portrayal of a woman rediscovering himself.
"Tervalon turns out an atmospheric winner." (Booklist)
