Purchase book

Meet graphic novelist Nora Dåsnes at the Mission Hills-Hillcrest/Knox Library (all the way from Norway!) to accept her Stonewall Award at the American Library Association conference. Nora will be sharing her debut work, Cross My Heart and Never Lie, followed by a Q&A and book signing. This event is FREE and open to all presented by the Library Shop SD

About the Book:

In this fresh, sensitive, diary-style graphic novel, 12-year-old Tuva’s questions about becoming a teenager are confusing-so when her first crush turns out to be on another girl, it feels absolutely wonderful – so why does it become so complicated? Perfect for fans of The Girl from the Sea by Molly Knox Ostertag, HeartStopper by Alice Oseman, and Jen Wang’s The Dressmaker and the Prince.

About the Author:

Nora Dåsnes is a Norwegian writer and illustrator. Her first graphic novel, Cross My Heart and Never Lie, was immediately embraced by teen readers, librarians, reviewers, booksellers — and Alice Oseman, NYT Bestselling author of Heartstopper, who said Reading this was like a warm hug.” It was named a New York Public Library Best Book, a Cooperative Children’s Book Center Choice and received the ALA Stonewall Award.
