A Prosser woman is releasing her debut young adult thriller in August.
Jessica Hoefer, who writes under the name Jessica Kapp, landed a deal with Diversion Books in New York. Her novel, Body Parts, is due out Aug. 15 and centers on a teen orphan who fights back after discovering she’s been raised for body parts.
Barnes & Noble in Kennewick is hosting a launch party in Prosser on Aug. 19 to celebrate the release. It’s from 3 to 5 p.m. at Jeremy’s 1896 Public House, 1232 Wine Country Road. The public is invited.
Kapp will read from her book and sign copies. Books will be available for purchase.
Never miss a local story.
An audio version of Body Parts is being released through Audible in conjunction with the paperback and e-book editions.
Kapp will take off on a library tour throughout the Northwest this fall, including stopping at the Kennewick Barnes & Noble’s Teen Reading Festival in September.
