About the Author

Born in a backwoods cabin to a pair of punk rockers, Tess Sharpe grew up in rural California. Following an internship with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, she studied theater at Southern Oregon University before abandoning the stage for the professional kitchen. She lives, writes, and bakes near the Oregon border. This is her first novel.


Praise For Far From You

* "This beautifully realized debut delves into the emotions of a girl recovering from drug addiction and grief, all wrapped up in a solid mystery."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

* "Sharpe creat[es] a lacerating picture of grief and regret. ...The murder mystery is compelling, and its resolution serves as a reminder that love is irrevocably tied to loss and that few people get out of it unscathed."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)

"This romance is full of struggle and strong emotions, likely to find an appreciable YA audience."—School Library Journal
