In a stunning turn of events, Willa Havisham has to leave the comfort of her beloved Cape Cod and move to Troy, New York. She's 14-years-old and everything seems new; her questions, her 'community rent,' even a new boy but through it all, she's still Always Willa.
Coleen Murtagh Paratore is a native of Troy, New York, where she set the first installment of a new middle-grade series about Willa Havisham, the character made popular in her Wedding Planner's Daughter series of novels.
