Seventeen-year-old Raychel is sleeping with two boys: her overachieving best friend Matt…and his slacker brother, Andrew. Raychel sneaks into Matt’s bed after nightmares, but nothing ever happens. He doesn’t even seem to realize she’s a girl, except when he decides she needs rescuing. But Raychel doesn’t want to be his girl anyway. She just needs his support as she deals with the classmate who assaulted her, the constant threat of her family’s eviction, and the dream of college slipping quickly out of reach. Matt tries to help, but he doesn’t really get it… and he’d never understand why she’s fallen into a secret relationship with his brother. The friendships are a precarious balance, and when tragedy strikes, everything falls apart. Raychel has to decide which pieces she can pick up – and which ones are worth putting back together.
After studying Spanish and history at a small liberal arts school, Kate Hart taught young people their ABCs, wrote grants for grownups with disabilities, and now builds treehouses for people of all ages. Her debut YA novel, AFTER THE FALL, is coming January 2017 from FSG. She also contributes to YA Highway, hosts the Badass Ladies You Should Know series, and will soon sell inappropriate handicrafts at The Badasserie.
Kate is a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, and owns a treehouse-building business in northwest Arkansas, where she resides with her family.

PLEASE WELCOME KATE TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
1. What is on your nightstand?
Reading glasses, my Kindle, my meds, a water bottle, and a collection of pens and hairbands.
2. What author would you totally fan?
I am a huge admirer of Laini Taylor’s work. Whenever I get stuck, reading a story from Lips Touch, Three Times helps unblock me.
3. What makes you cringe?
Loud, repetitive noises. I’m not sure how I ever survived teaching preschool.
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
A little of both. Some books require extensive planning, but others allow for a more meandering approach.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
The F word and I have a creative relationship.

Hello Kate, After the Fall sounds great! Thank you
Since I read the synopsis I wanted to read the book. It deals with someone who is trying to cope with a horrendous act and I hope it’s as good as it sounds.
Congrats on the new release! It sounds like a fascinating book.
