QUIVER: A Novel by Julia Watts 
Three Rooms Press
Paperback: 300 pages
Publication Date: 10/16/18
ISBN: 978-1-941110-66-9 

“The perfect book for our times, when acknowledgment of common ground and empathy are sorely needed.” New York Journal of Books

Set in rural Tennessee, QUIVER focuses on the unlikely friendship between two teens from opposite sides of the culture wars, featuring Libby, who has grown up in a fundamentalist Christian family, and her new neighbor Zo, a gender fluid teen whose feminist, socialist, vegetarian family recently relocated from the city in search of a less stressful life. The tensions that spring from their families’ cultural differences reflect the pointed conflicts found in today’s society, and illuminate a path for broader consideration. 

Julia Watts is the author of 13 novels, most of which explore the lives of LGBT people in rural and smalltown Appalachia. Her YA novel Finding H.F. won the 2002 Lambda Literary Award in the Children’s/Young Adult category. A novel for adults, The Kind of Girl I Am, was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in the Women’s Fiction category, and her 2013 YA novel Secret City won the Golden Crown Literary Award. Julia holds an MFA in Writing from Spalding University and has spoken at various national and regional conferences. She teaches at South College and Murray State. Recently inducted into the East Tennessee Writers Hall of Fame, she currently resides in Knoxville, Tennessee.

I just read Quiver and loved it. Perfect book for now, as it portrays two teens from different sides of the political and cultural spectrum overcoming judgment and becoming friends.
