Fans of Eleanor & Park and The Book Thief will love this startling and heart-warming take on Peter Pan.
Set in 1953, NORA AND KETTLE explores the collision of two teenagers facing extraordinary adversity. Kettle, an orphaned Japanese American, is struggling to make a life in the aftermath of an event in history not often referred to—the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II and the removal of children from orphanages for having "one drop of Japanese blood in them." Nora, the daughter of a civil rights lawyer who is building a compensation case for the interned Japanese Americans, is barely surviving her violent home and dreams of a life outside of the brownstone walls. Their meeting is inevitable, devastating and ultimately healing. Their stories, a collection of events, are each on their own harmless. But together, one after the other, they change the world.
Nora and Kettle is the stunning debut of The Paper Star Novels from Clean Teen Publishing. The novel is garnering a lot of attention including a starred review from Booklist Magazine who calls Nora and Kettle: "Lyrically written, this powerful and at times painful read captures the reader and does not let go."
