WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT NADIA BOZAK
Nadia Bozak writes straight to the heart of girlhood, where secrets are both awkward and empowering, as childhood’s magic gives way to the discomfort of adolescence and a young woman comes into her own. Thirteen Shells is a beautifully written book.
El Niño is a blazing novel about desperation and courage, survival and death, borders and barriers of all sorts and what it takes to break through. Nadia Bozak’s characters are fierce, brave, and haunting. Stylistically brazen and wildly suspenseful, this novel charges and snaps, sinks its teeth in, and doesn’t let go.
[Nadia Bozak is] masterful when it comes to language, churning out brilliant turns of phrase worth revisiting… Thirteen Shells quietly captures each painful gasp of growing up: the anxiety and shame, along with the treasures found along the way.
