BRANDY COLBERT reads from POINTE

Pointe (Putnam)

A launch party for this debut novel by local young adult author Brandy Colbert! 

Theo is better now.

She's eating again, well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer, and finally found a guy who understands her -- even if he's not exactly appropriate. Or available.

But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns to their Chicago suburb after four long years with his abductor, Theo is forced to relive painful memories about the months leading up to his disappearance . . . and the person who kidnapped him.

Donovan's PTSD has rendered him mute, and Theo may be the only one who can help put his abductor behind bars for good, even if telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet could ruin more lives than her own.

Brandy Colbert dazzles in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story about learning how to let go of even our most shameful secrets. 

Praise for Pointe:
"Debut novelist Colbert has written an extraordinary book about dance, seamlessly intertwined with the chilling aftermath of a kidnapping. In honest, confident prose, Colbert builds characters whose flaws, struggles, and bad decisions make them real and indelibly memorable." --Publishers Weekly

"A brave and resonant debut that is as captivating as it is heartbreaking." --Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still

"Brandy Colbert's debut is beautiful, sharp and memorable." --Courtney Summers, author of Cracked Up to Be

Brandy Colbert was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, and has worked as an editor for several national magazines. She lives and writes in Los Angeles. Pointe is her first novel.
