Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||Kat Greene mixes Harriet the Spy with some Windex and a dash of humor for a compelling story about the lengths we'll go to for the people we love. A sparkling debut! --Erin Donne, author of The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet I absolutely loved Kat's warm, funny, perfectly-pitched middle-grade voice. This book fits perfectly in the heartwarming tradition of Manhattan-based stories from E.L. Konigsburg, Rebecca Stead, Louise Fitzhugh, and Judy Blume. Highly recommended! -Sally J. Pla, author of The Someday Birds With the same timeless feel as Judy Blume's middle-grade books, Kat Greene relays its themes in a similarly clever and entertaining way. I loved the way author Melissa Roske empowers Kat and, as a result, her tween readers. --Katy Upperman, author of Kissing Max Holden Melissa Roske gives us an easy-to-love protagonist in Kat Greene. She's smart, authentic, and very relatable. Kat navigates her struggles in realistic ways and never loses heart. Teachers will want this one on their shelves. -Patricia Bailey, author of The Tragically True Adventures of Kit Donovan.
Melissa Roske grew up in New York City. Her career began as a journalist in Europe before taking a job as an advice columnist for Just Seventeen magazine in London, where she answered hundreds of letters from readers each week. (Her column was called Life Sucks, but it was Melissa's job to insist it didn't.) After returning to New York, Melissa contributed to various books and magazines, chose jokes for Reader's Digest and also became a certified life coach. Kat Greene Comes Clean is her debut novel.
