About the Author: Born in Lima, Peru, Natalia Sylvester came to the U.S. at age four and grew up in South Florida, where she received a B.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Miami. A former magazine editor, she now works as a freelance writer in Austin, Texas. Her articles have appeared in Latina magazine, Writer's Digest, The Writer, and NBCLatino.com. Chasing the Sun, partially inspired by family events, is her first novel. Book: Andres suspects his wife has left him--again. Then he learns that the unthinkable has happened: she's been kidnapped. Too much time and too many secrets have come between Andres and Marabela, but now that she's gone, he'll do anything to get her back. Or will he? As Marabela slips farther away, Andres must decide whether they still have something worth fighting for, and exactly what he'll give up to bring her home. And unfortunately, the decision isn't entirely up to him, or up to the private mediator who moves into the family home to negotiate with the terrorists holding Marabela. Andres struggles to maintain the illusion of control while simultaneously scrambling to collect his wife's ransom, tending to the needs of his two young children, and reconnecting with an old friend who may hold the key to his past and his wife's future. Set in Lima, Peru, in a time of civil and political unrest, this evocative page-turner is a perfect marriage of domestic drama and suspense.

She lives with her son and dog in West Covina, California Book: Eleven-year-old Jaden is adopted, and he knows he's an "epic fail.” He’s sure that's why his family is traveling to Kazakhstan to adopt a new baby--to replace him. And he gets it. He is incapable of stopping his stealing, hoarding, lighting fires, aggressive running, and obsession with electricity. He knows his parents love him, but he feels...nothing. But when they get to Kazakhstan, it turns out the infant they've chosen has already been adopted, and literally, within minutes, they are faced with having to choose from among six other babies. While his parents agonize, Jaden is more interested in the toddlers. One, a little guy named Dimash, spies Jaden and barrels over to him every time he sees him. Jaden finds himself increasingly intrigued by and worried about Dimash. Already three years old and barely able to speak, Dimash will soon age out of the orphanage, and then his life will be as hopeless as Jaden feels now. For the first time in his life, Jaden actually feels something that isn't pure blinding fury, and there's no way to control it, or its power. From camels rooting through garbage like raccoons to eagles being trained like hunting dogs, to streets that are more pothole than pavement, ALF A WORLD AWAY is Cynthia Kadohata's latest spark of a novel.
