Nora Dasnes introduces her debut graphic novel, Cross My Heart and Never Lie, a story about
friendships, change and first crushes.

In Cross My Heart and Never Lie, Tuva is starting seventh grade, and her checklist of goals includes: writing a diary, getting a new look, building the best fort in the woods with her BFFs, and sharing EVERYTHING with her best friends. But when she starts school, nothing is how she hoped it would be. Over the summer, her friends have started to drift apart. Where does this leave her?

Nora Dasnes tells us how her own friendships and the changes she faced as a teenager helped inspire her first novel.  Cross My Heart and Never Lie is part diary, part graphic novel, and we're sure you'll love it as much as we do!
