Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest
came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage.
The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises
at every turn of the page. Something is amiss at the Hotel
Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in
rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the
plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in
her landlady mother's absence. The quirky tenants-a hilarious mix
of misfits and rabble-rousers from days gone by-rely on Alexis all
the more when they discover a plot to sell the Hotel. Can Alexis
save their home? Find her real father? Deal with her surrogate
dad's dicey past? Find true love? Perhaps only their feisty pet
crow, Habib, truly knows. Provoking interesting questions about the
creative process, this novel is by turns funny, scary, witty,
suspenseful, beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected. A
