About the Author
ALISON STINE is the author of the adult novels Trashlands, longlisted for the 2022 Reading the West Book Award, a finalist for the Ohioana Book Award, and longlisted for the 2022 Mark Twain American Voice in Literature Award, and Road Out of Winter, winner of the 2021 Philip K. Dick Award. Alison lives in Colorado. Dust is her young adult debut novel

"An immediate classic that holds its own alongside the greats of American Literature, Dust brings the haunting echoes of our past to a weather-beaten future. Every word of Dust is as familiar as a childhood friend. You understand--instantly--that you will carry it with you for the rest of your life." - K. Ancrum, author of The Wicker King

"Dust by Alison Stine is an arresting imagining of rural life in an alternate history in Colorado. The main character, Thea sits between worlds: of the hearing and deaf, belonging to both. Dust shows us that one brave person like Thea can impact an entire community and therefore the planet. The startling novel sits between the past and future and is both a poetic warning and inspiring story about the precarious choices we make as a species and our connection to the planet. Its message is clear: that if we just listen to the planet, really understand what Earth is saying, that we might just make the right decisions after all. Dust is a stunning novel of equal parts poetic beauty and timely warning. This is a must read! - Olivia Chadha, author of Colorado Book Award winner Rise of the Red Hand

"Despite its isolating and deadly setting, Dust is ultimately a story about all-consuming hope. Stine deftly navigates the realities of a deaf teenager finding community and belonging. A gripping, moving read." -Lillie Lainoff, author of One for All
