I am so excited that Crewel by Gennifer Albin is finally out! I read an ARC of this a few months ago and just LOVED it! As part of the Crewel Street Team, I got to ask Gennifer one random (and mine truly is) question to help promote her book. Here’s her answer!
Proud Book Nerd: Do you prefer cake or ice cream?
Gennifer Albin: Hmmm, both are AWESOME, but really good cake like my grandmother’s will always win out.
I gotta say that I agree there. Cake is so awesome! LOL
Incapable. Awkward. Artless.
That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.
Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.
Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.
Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.
Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.
It’s a really, really good book. You can find my review HERE.
About Gennifer Albin
I like coffee. A lot. Writing gives me time to go get a cup without my kids. I like books as much as I like coffee, but it is easier to read with children hanging on you than drink coffee due to the threat of third degree burns. That’s why coffee gets top billing in my intro: its unattainability.
I have a Masters in English with a specialization in 18th century women’s studies. While this is a highly marketable area of expertise, it pretty much means my 4 year-old son uses correct grammar and I’m behind on publications of the last, oh, 100 years or so.
I have a ridiculously supportive husband who dreams of being included on a book jacket: “The author lives in Kansas with her husband, two children, and a Tuesday cat.” He even cooks dinner.
