Anna Rose Johnson Publishes Her Debut Novel

Jul 12, 2022 | Student Spotlights

Our very own Anna Rose Johnson is now a published author!

Her debut, The Star That Always Stays, releases TODAY… Tuesday, July 12th.

Here’s what our co-founder and CEO, Brett Harris, had to say about the book:

My wife and I got to enjoy an Advanced Reader Copy of The Star That Always Stays and it’s our new favorite fiction book of 2022.

(And we’ve read some great novels this year… like Kate DiCamillo’s Because Of Winn-Dixie and Noel Streatfeild’s classic, Ballet Shoes).

Why did we like it so much?

Because it strikes that delicate balance of being neither too light and fluffy or too dark and scary.

It is family-friendly in every sense of the term and even includes strong Christian elements despite being published by a secular New York City publisher.

And most of all… because it reminded us of beloved childhood favorites and gave us that thrilling experience of getting lost in a new book together.

Anna Rose’s book has already been chosen as a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection, and has received reviews from Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews.
