A Note to Readers from YA Author Catherine Barter
By Libby Stille, Associate Publicist
The US edition of Catherine Barter’s YA novel Troublemakers launches on April 1! Troublemakers follows 15-year-old Alena as she seeks to find out the truth about what happened to her activist mother. Meanwhile, her brother Danny’s job working for a conservative politician worries his longtime boyfriend Nick, who runs a fair-trade coffee shop.
