Publicity: The Art of Crash Landing – Melissa DeCarlo

Melissa DeCarlo’s debut has been selected as the #1 LibraryReads pick for September. Like the Indie Next list, librarians choose this list of monthly favorites list is by nationwide vote. The Art of Crash Landing garnered comments like “confident and accomplished” and “a triumphant first novel” from Kirkus and PW respectively.

First novelist DeCarlo deftly weaves in flashbacks about Mattie’s childhood and creates a cast of wonderfully full-blooded, fallible characters, from kind and ailing Queeg to Karleen, Mattie’s mother’s closest childhood friend, to potty-mouthed Goth teenager Tawny, the “summer project” of a no-nonsense librarian. Best of all is Mattie herself, who has cultivated a measure of humanity in addition to impressive survival skills and whose briskly told story is instantly involving. An impressive debut.”
