Hannah Both Ways
Author: Rosie Greenway
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: November 17, 2015
Publisher: Rebelight Publishing Inc.


A devastating Twitter prank yanks Hannah out of the popular crowd and turns her into the high school’s best bad joke. Determined to finish the year and graduate, Hannah must keep the humiliating details from her impulsive mother—who just might pack up their belongings and move. Again.

Hannah hovers below the radar by submersing herself in a new routine. Post-it notes, Dewey Decimal numbers and carefully planned trips to the library are her refuge. That is, until a persistent new student invades her space. Lucas has complete disregard for Hannah’s cynicism and snark, and he seems to know the bullies who targeted her. Can Hannah trust him, or is he part of another ploy to torment her?

I’m alone a lot. Being alone is boring, but it doesn’t usually bother me, perhaps because I’ve never missed the presence of anyone in particular in my day-to-day life. That changes after Lucas leaves on Sunday night. The house is empty and way too quiet. I miss him. It’s not the same feeling as when he’s not beside me in Writer’s Craft. That’s a vague bleakness. This is worse. It’s not vague at all. It’s specific, and I can pinpoint its location with alarming accuracy.

It’s located in the very centre of my left ventricle. It’s a dangerous feeling. The left ventricle is the biggest and strongest chamber in the human heart. When a heart breaks, that’s probably where the crack starts. I’m scared. I’d like to shove this fear away somewhere, but there’s not a big enough rug in the world for me to shove it under. 

Rosie Greenway grew up on the outskirts of Toronto, and continues to live and work in the GTA with her husband and family. After spending her formative years public-school hopping, Rosie attended the University of Toronto, specializing in English literature. A former English teacher, Rosie now finds herself putting into practice the many lessons she used to impart to the students in her class room. While she has often turned to writing as a way to relax and unwind, Hannah Both Ways is her first foray into the world of Young Adult publishing.

When she isn’t writing, Rosie is an avid traveler, armchair film critic, enthusiastic foodie and voracious reader. She is a passionate literacy advocate and one of her greatest achievements is instilling in her daughter the joy of reading.
