Something About Peoniesis a new YA fiction novel written by up and coming young authorEllie Christene. 119,362 words and 316 pages long, it tells the story of Cat Riddle, a not-so-typical teenage girl who goes through a pretty typical experience. 16-year-old Cat Riddle certainly isn’t your typical teenager…
Ellie Christene talks a bit about what inspired her to write this novel:
In all honesty, I don’t remember what inspired me to write Something About Peonies. I remember exactly when I came up with specific ideas for the book, but not the overall idea. I remember coming up with the main character’s moms, and I kind of remember thinking about the book on a car ride, but that’s it. The main character is Catherine (Cat) Riddle, who starts off as 16 in the beginning of the book and is 17 at the end. She deals with both Asperger’s and Tourette’s syndromes, as well as gay moms. So the whole book is about her being not normal but managing to fall in love, which is a very normal thing to do.
