A Virtual Event with Marisa Reichardt in conversation with Jordan Raney September 29th at 7:30pm

{pages} a bookstore Presents Author Marisa Reichardt celebrating the launch of her brand new YA novel Aftershocks. Marisa will be in conversation with Jordan Raney. Aftershocks is a gripping YA novel about two strangers struggling to survive a massive California earthquake

When a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hits California, high school water polo player Ruby is trapped in a laundromat with Charlie, a boy she had her first conversation with only moments before. She can’t see anything beyond the rubble that she’s trapped beneath, but she’s sure someone will come save them soon. As the hours and days tick by, Ruby and Charlie struggle to stay hopeful—and stay alive. Ruby has only Charlie’s voice and her memories to find the hope to keep holding on. Will the two make it out alive? And if they do, what will they have lost to the earthquake? Riveting, tense, and emotionally complex, Aftershocks weaves together the terror and hope of a catastrophic event while showing the ways that disasters can change and unite us.

Marisa Reichardt was born and raised in Southern California. Her debut novel, Underwater, was an Indies Introduce New Voices pick and received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. She lives in Hermosa Beach with her family, and can usually be found huddled over her laptop in a coffeehouse or swimming in the ocean.


Jordan Raney is an All American water polo player who played for Mira Costa High
School and Stanford University. She is a Tokyo Olympic hopeful.
