BEFORE MY EYES
A new novel by CAROLINE BOCK
from St. Martin’s Press in 2014

If you are one of those people who like to be in the know before anybody else... check out Lena Roy's blog post on my upcoming young adult novel, BEFORE MY EYES. I asked her if she could "blurb" (write an insightful but eye-catching yet meaningful few lines for promotional use based on an early, early review copy. A blurb is an art in itself). And was I surprised what I got back - much more than a blurb. Or maybe I shouldn't have been surprised - she's an amazing writer - and reader!  Here's a first take on BEFORE MY EYES:
   
"...Bock's story begins with a mass shooting on a Monday morning, and then she takes us back to Friday, weaving the narrative between three points of view: Max, a state senator's son who is having a hard time doing the right thing, Claire, a poet who has too many responsibilities, and Barkley, who hears voices, and unravels before our eyes. Max and Claire are more worried about themselves, and although we know what is going to happen, we quickly turn the pages.

Bock isn't preaching to us about the way things should be, she's giving us a glimpse into the way things are, without sentimentality and without an agenda. Her characters are multi-dimensional, filled with both darkness and light, as we, her readers all are. She reminds us of the struggle to be human, and has us searching for our own redemption, our own path to forgiving the world for its sins..."  the complete critique of BEFORE MY EYES can be found at:  www.lenaroy.com.

Thank you, Lena!

BEFORE MY EYES will be published in early 2014 from St. Martin's Press.

In the meantime, if you haven't read LIE yet, my debut novel about race, hate, murder, and ultimately at the very end, love -- get a copy today -- if you haven't read Lena Roy's EDGES, get a copy today too!   Caroline

This is a lovely novel from the Caroline Bock family. She is a writer with a good taste in all the subjects she handles and to entertain the readers in this fashion is some supreme act. Only a few writers can claim such a thing and you are amazing, Caroline.
