Praise for Tim Floreen’s debut novel, new book out this fall

timfloreenTim Floreen (Fiction 2005) published his first novel last October, a young adult science fiction thriller from Simon & Schuster called Willful Machines. In a starred review, Kirkus called it “gothic, gadgety, and gay” (which Tim himself says is an accurate assessment). The New York Public Library named it one of the best teen books of 2015, and it was also a finalist for the Northern California Book Awards and on the American Library Association’s 2016 Rainbow List. Tim’s second book, Tattoo Atlas, also a thriller for young adults, comes out this October.

Congratulations, Tim!
