A Best Book of 2017 by Locus Magazine and Bustle Magazine

I am Anda, and the lake is my mother. I am the November storms that terrify sailors and sink ships. With their deaths, I keep my little island on Lake Superior alive.

Hector has come here to hide from his family until he turns eighteen. Isle Royale is shut down for the winter, and there’s no one here but me. And now him.

Hector is running from the violence in his life, but violence runs through my veins. I should send him away, to keep him safe. But I’m half human, too, and Hector makes me want to listen to my foolish, half-human heart. And if I do, I can’t protect him from the storms coming for us.

The November Girl named as a Best Young Adult Book of 2017 by Bustle

“Complex and haunting, THE NOVEMBER GIRL looks for the light in the darkest of places. Powerful and evocative.” —Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of The Female of The Species

“THE NOVEMBER GIRL should be savored by lantern, under a wool blanket on a chilly rainswept night. Brimming with Lydia Kang’s smart prose and evocative imagery, THE NOVEMBER GIRL is an atmospheric, haunting tale of love, sacrifice, and self-acceptance that builds like a rogue wave toward its stunning conclusion.”  — Elle Cosimano, International Thriller Award Winning Author of Nearly Gone

“With her trademark beautiful prose, Lydia Kang’s love story between a troubled boy and a literal force of nature is exquisitely drawn and heart-wrenching. Set in the unforgiving autumn forests off Lake Superior,* you’ll be rooting for Hector and Anda to find strength in each other despite very real threats beyond their control. Magical and thrilling, THE NOVEMBER GIRL will haunt you long after you finish. Maurene Goo, Author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love

“Absolutely stunning in its beauty! I’ve never read a book quite like THE NOVEMBER GIRL. You don’t want to miss this unique and mesmerizing tale.”- Pintip Dunn, New York Times bestselling author of Forget Tomorrow and Girl On The Verge

“An intense and beautifully written romance that had me bracing myself until the final page. Innocently dangerous Anda and wounded Hector tugged at my heart so hard that their journey left me breathless. Through both Anda’s struggle to not give into her nature, Hector’s need for love, and the desire they both had to care for one another, I couldn’t help but root for this couple. They were just so sweet together. Swoon! With her deep imagination and lovely prose, Kang weaves a touching story with so much heart and warmth we’re able to weather a stormy November.”- Brenda Drake, New York Times bestselling author of the Library Jumpers series

 “The November Girl is a magnetic, magical read, and one that should absolutely be on your to-read list.” – Hypable

“Three-dimensional vividness… An emotional and dramatic tale of an otherworldly relationship.” – Kirkus Reviews

“..a solid level of tension that keeps the pages turning..” — School Library Journal
