"Beautiful, atmospheric, and compelling, Invisible Fault Lines is a story of the worst disasters and how we survive them. An artful novel that still haunts after the last page."  

- National Book Award finalist Deb Caletti, author of The Last Forever

"Kristen-Paige Madonia is a remarkable young novelist. Her writing is luminous, her voice original, and the journey she takes us on, compelling...Sure to appeal to both teens and adults who will want to read it again, just as I did. What a thrill to discover this talented writer."

- Best-selling author Judy Blume
