February 2019 Indie Next List

“Dana Czapnik’s debut is a sharp coming-of-age story set in New York City in the mid-1990s with an unforgettable protagonist: Lucy is a street-smart basketball phenom who is secretly in love with Percy, her best friend and fellow baller. Lucy and Percy jump off the page through Czapnik’s propulsive, stylish writing. These characters are interesting, warm, and quirky and feel entirely authentic as they struggle to define who they are and want to become. Czapnik’s novel has personality and an attitude that infuses the pages and makes it impossible to put down.”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List

“New York City in the ’90s has never felt as alive as it does on the pages of Dana Czapnik’s The Falconer. In Lucy Adler, we find a teen heroine who is wry and sharp, a force on and off the basketball court, in love with her best friend, and gradually exploring the dusky art scene via her cousin Violet. Lucy’s voice is as unforgettable as the rest of this novel, which marks the emergence of a grand new writing talent.”
