Book: The Year of the Gadfly
Jennifer Miller's exhilarating tale of double-crosses and long-buried secrets, told with all the charge of adolescence, reminds us of how the high school years can haunt our lives forever, and is perfect for adults and young adults. The Year of the Gadfly tells the story of a budding journalist Iris Dupont, trying to break into the ranks of an underground newspaper that threatens to undermine her exclusive high school's pristine reputation. But discovering the truth comes with its own dangers, which leaves Iris torn between her allegiances, her reporter's instinct and her own troubled past. Reviewers have called the book "a brilliant portrayal of the dark underbelly of adolescence" and an" imaginative delight."
Author and journalist Jennifer Miller's works have appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, The Christian Science Monitor and more. The Washington, D.C. native, who now lives in Brooklyn, holds a degree in fiction and journalism from Columbia University.
