Dear Twin fall tour

November 14, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - December 16, 2019 @ 9:30 pm

Addie Tsai, Houston-based author, launches her debut crossover YA novel, Dear Twin!

About the book:

Poppy is a biracial, Asian, queer, 18-year-old living in Houston, Texas. Shortly after high school graduation, her twin sister, Lola, goes missing. Poppy lives with her father, who has become incredibly possessive and anxious of Poppy since Lola has left, making her defer college for a year. She decides to write her twin a series of letters about her side of the story regarding some of the trauma they’ve both experienced, hoping it might bring Lola back, and that she’ll be able to leave for college with her love, a Korean butch girl named Juniper.
