Reviews

"This coming-of-age book is a must-read regardless of how old you are. Described as Ladybird meets A Streetcar Named Desire, Knee Deep is a creative blend of modern romance and realism laced with paranormal elements and French Quarter flare." --Mark Graham, Book Room Reviews
"Named after a hurricane, Camille is the rebellious sixteen-year-old daughter of a New Orleans bar-owner who grows up in the shadow of Bourbon Street, raised on stories of hauntings, lusty encounters and voodoo magic. And even though her family loses their home in a hurricane, she counts herself among the lucky until she discovers that her eighteen-year-old neighbor whom she secretly loves goes missing in the storm. In Camille's own words: "This is the story of what happened to me on Fat Tuesday, how I ended up on the steps of St. Mary's, the hem of my pirate's petticoat soaked in somebody's else's blood. Although I know the story to be true, I don't totally believe it myself. Like all good tales born out of the bayou, mine involves the dead, the living and the one trapped in the brackish waters between heaven and hell. It is the story of true love and true disaster, and at the end of it, I'll leave it up to you to decide which is the harder to survive." A deftly crafted novel by an author with a critically impressive skill as a narrative driven storyteller, Knee Deep by Karol Hoeffner is certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to middle school, highschool, and community library contemporary fiction collections...." --Midwest Book Review
"...Knee Deep lets itself be a story of solidarity, a tale about the glue that binds communities together, as told by the voice of a young one who, like us, the readers, is just waking up to so much." -- Anjanette Delgado, New York Journal of Books
