StoryMakers On Location: Kayla Cagan at TLA
Here on KidLit TV we love being able to support all authors, especially when they have debut book coming out on the shelves for you to enjoy. Kayla Cagan is that author this time with her book PIPER PERISH! Aspiring art student going to art school? Boy oh boy will you love this book! Filled with teenage drama, dilemma and let’s not forget the struggles of being young art student, Kayla Cagan knows how to capture what it truly means to be a teenager. We were lucky to run into her at the Texas Library Association Conference to chat about her debut and so much more!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Piper Perish inhales air and exhales art. The sooner she and her best friends can get out of Houston and get to New York City, the better. Art school has been Piper’s dream her whole life, and now that senior year is halfway over, she’s never felt more ready. But in the final months before graduation, things are weird with her friends and stressful with three different guys, and Piper’s sister’s tyrannical mental state seems to thwart every attempt at happiness for the close-knit Perish family. Piper’s art just might be enough to get her out. But is she brave enough to seize that power when it means giving up so much?
