Description: Local Young Adult author Carol Moreira and her husband, author Peter Moreira will be in store reading and signing their books.
Carol's latest YA novel is Membrane, which begins when two teenage girls, who are doppelgangers from different universes, meet up and take an instant dislike to each other.
Her previous novel, Charged, tells the story of two 15-year-old friends, Craig and Mandy, who are living through some tough times with their families. When things come to a climax, Craig and Mandy need their friendship more than ever to cope. This story is also about growing up and taking responsibility for your own actions and doing the right thing.
