About the Author

Louise Hawes has written books for readers of all ages, including Rosey in the Present Tense, Waiting for Christopher, The Vanishing Point, and Black Pearls. Her work has won awards from Bank Street College, the NJ Council on the Arts, the New York City Public Library, the Children's Book Council, the Independent Booksellers Association, the International Reading Association, and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Louise has written poems from the time she could form letters, but poetry has always been something she kept to herself--a sort of emotional timeline and diary. The Language of Stars marks the first time she's "gone public" with her poems. A tribute to Frost, one of her favorite poets, it is a sort of "debut novel" for an author who's written several well-loved books but never one so close to her heart.

Reviews

"A tale of self-discovery well suited for art-inclined readers who feel themselves on the fringe."--Kirkus
"[Sarah's] struggle with the decision to be true to herself is one that many teens will recognize."--School Library Journal
Full of poetry and ideas, Sarah's narration has an exuberant innocence, bringing a fresh and joyful quality to a story about a girl learning to love the possibilities that come with independence: the chance to discover one's true self and desires, while forging a path forward that might fulfill them.--Publishers Weekly
"A rewarding character study [about] the power of creative expression..... This is a tale of forgiveness, listening to the world, and looking beyond the surface."--Booklist
