Paula McLain is a poet who has just penned her first novel and it's getting rave reviews--everyone remembers that older teenage girl who seemed so much cooler than everyone else, who we emulated, adored and occasionally followed into potentially bad situations? That's the story she tells in A Ticket to Ride, about which Bust magazine just wrote: "McLain's writing is lyrical...and the characters are achingly real. This is truly the sort of novel that, once started, is difficult to put down." And the Cleveland Plain Dealer said: "McLain has put a poet's ear to the urgency of adolescence and come back with a strong throb of a first novel."
