AUTHOR OF EVERYTHING GROWS

Told through a series of letters and set against a 1993-era backdrop of grunge rock and riot grrl bands, Everything Grows depicts Eleanor’s extraordinary journey to solve the mystery within her and feel complete. With the help of a unique cast of characters, Eleanor learns not only what it means to be inside a body that does not quite match what she feels on the inside, but also comes to terms with her mother’s mental illness.
