Ella LAye: Orphan Sky

Ella Leya
Historical Fiction
Sourcebooks, February 2015. World English.                                               Manuscript available.
Leila is a good daughter of the Communist Party. She faithfully serves the KGB and is on her way to becoming a national treasure of Azerbaijan as a piano prodigy. But then her Communist mentor orders her to spy on Tahir, a young painter and music shop owner suspected of being a traitor.

Tahir opens up a world of music and art to Leila, cracking open the veneer of Communism and showing Leila its hypocrisy and corruption. Just when she begins to fall in love with both the West and Tahir, her comrades expose their relationship and force her to make an impossible choice. 

Set at the crossroads of Turkish, Persian, and Russian cultures under the red flag of Communism in the late 1970s, THE ORPHAN SKY lyrically reveals one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world.

I could hear the music while reading this extraordinary book.  THE ORPHAN SKY has everything a reader could want:  the thrill of young romance, the tension of spying, and a window into a fascinating culture along with a glimpse into the captivating past of Azerbaijan.”
—Deborah Rodriguez, author of New York Times bestseller Kabul Beauty School andMargarita Wednesdays

“An intriguing mix of romance, spying and hope – a delightful reading.”
—Scott Turow, New York Times bestselling author of Innocent

“A unique mix of musical temperament, folktale and teenage passion set against the hard backdrop of 1970s Soviet politics in Azerbaijan.”—Tracy Chevalier 

Ella Leya is an Azerbaijani-American composer, singer, and writer. Defying the norms of the Muslim society, she was the first girl to play piano and sing jazz in a local club. Her albums have sold over 9 million copies worldwide. In 2006, Ella’s internationally acclaimed CD, “Russian Romance,” was named one of the ten best world music recordings. Her newest CD, “Secret Lives of Women,” celebrates the history’s most famous and infamous femme fatales, including Princess Diana, Mata Hari, Cleopatra, Sarah Bernhardt. Ella lives in Laguna Beach, CA and London with her husband and son Micah. Her website is www.ellaleya.com.

Every time Lara Jean falls in love and it doesn’t work out, she writes the boy a letter for closure. She pours her heart out in the letter, addresses the envelope, seals it, and puts the letters in her hat box and keeps them there…until one day, the hat box is missing and so are the letters. They've all been mailed out—including the one to her most recent crush, her older sister's boyfriend.

“…Lara Jean’s personality—goofy, awkward, prone to strong emotions, and entirely naïve when it comes to boys—gives this touching story an individuality and charm all its own. Han creates a realistically flawed cast…”—Publishers Weekly, Starred review

If you dig awkward but sweet teen romances, this dramedy of errors will have you in YA heaven.”

Belly measures her life in summers, when everything magical happens. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Belly lives for her summers at Cousins Beach. But when the beach house tradition is threatened, she faces the season without her second family and without the boy she loves. After the death of his mother, Conrad has shut down, refusing to talk to Belly or anyone else. When he suddenly leaves school without explanation, his brother, Jeremiah, recruits Belly to help. The trio find themselves at Cousins Beach after all, and the memories and feelings of the past come flooding back. Complicated
and fragile, Belly's relationships with the two boys are put to new tests as she and Conrad come to terms with their relationship, and Belly and Jeremiah begin to build a romantic bond of their own.

“Fans of the first book will enjoy this continuation in which nothing is easy for Belly, but the end result is worth the heartache.”—School Library Journal

“Flashes of humor, realistic (and often salty) dialogue and growing-up moments both painful and authentic create a convincing and poignant read.”—Kirkus

* Over 120,000 copies sold (net).

Belly has only ever been in love with two boys. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she's almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it's now or never—he must tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good. Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.

“…vividly depicts the emotions of a girl on the brink of womanhood, impatient to make all of her dreams come true.”—Publishers Weekly

Han's impressive ear for and pitch-perfect reproduction of the interactions between not-quite-adult
older teens make this an appealing conclusion to this trilogy romance.”—Kirkus

Chapter Book
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2011.  North American.                       Books available.

Clara Lee likes her best friends, her grandpa, kimchi, candy necklaces (her signature look!), and the idea of winning the Little Miss Apple Pie contest. Clara Lee doesn't like her mom's fish soup, bad dreams (but Grandpa says they mean good luck!), speaking in public, or when her little sister is being annoying. One day, after a bad dream, Clara Lee has a whole day of luck (Like!). But then, bad luck starts to follow (Dislike!). Will Clara Lee's luck change in time for the Little Miss Apple Pie contest?

“[A] marvel of a book.”—Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor winner and New York Times-bestselling author

“A compact little book with a big heart.”—Linda Sue Park, Newbery Medal-winning author

“Judy Moody has a Korean-American friend in Clara Lee...  a string of heartfelt adventures as perfect as an unbroken candy necklace.”—Megan McDonald, author of the bestselling Judy Moody series

Annemarie Wilcox, “Shug” to her family, is starting to think there is nothing worse than being twelve.  She's too tall, too freckled, and way too flat-chested. And now she has to start junior high, where the friends she counts most dear aren't acting so dear anymore—especially Mark, the boy she's known her whole life. How can Shug prepare for tomorrow when there's just no figuring out today?

“[A] heartfelt first novel … this book will likely draw a wide audience.”—Publishers Weekly

“Contradictions and complications in friendships, boys, teachers, family…all explored with an authentic, appealing sure-handedness.”—Kirkus
