What is Janni Lee Simner reading?

The current featured contributor to Writers Read: Janni Lee Simner, author of three books for kids, more than 30 short stories for kids, teens, and adults, and Bones of Faerie, her first novel for teens.

Elizabeth Scott on Bones of Faerie:
Bones of Faerie was not at all what I was expecting. It is about faeries--a very popular topic these days--but it's also about so much more. Liza lives in our world but it's a changed one, one where a war between faerie and mankind have left everyone struggling to survive. After her newborn sister is killed--on suspicion of having magic in her--and her mother disappears, Liza ends up setting off to try and find her mother and ends up discovering that her mother, and others in her village, had their own secrets, and that she too isn't what she seems. Bones of Faerie is a story about family, love, loss, and the journey to become who you truly are. It is truly unique and an outstanding read.
