Mirabella’s Novel THE SWEETHEART Is Out

"Smart, funny, and poignant, Angelina Mirabella's THE SWEETHEART puts a hammerlock on one of literature's most important themes, the search for an identity, and makes it cry 'Auntie!' This is a delightfully original novel by a champ of a new writer." - Robert Olen Butler, Pulitzer prize-winning author of A GOOD SCENT FROM A STRANGE MOUNTAIN. What a great book.
