“Evolution, Me, & Other Freaks of Nature”

HB cover artEvolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande is one of two books reviewed for the Austin American-Statesman, as “Good YA novels with silly titles.”

From the review:

When Ms. Shepherd begins teaching evolution, the self-styled “Holy Warriors” at Mena’s church call for her dismissal and demand the teaching of intelligent design. Mena finds herself embroiled in a battle between the forces of evolution and “intelligent design” — but not, refreshingly, in a war between science and religion. Brande doesn’t separate the world into the knights of the shining beacon of science and Puritan maniacs insisting that the sun revolves around the Earth. Kayla, Casey’s sister and a journalist crusading for Ms. Shepherd, might be fighting the good fight, but she doesn’t hesitate to use Mena to her advantage.

HB is available now — paperback is scheduled for next year.
