    Rufi Thorpe

    Rufi Thorpe is a gifted writer in the adult and young adult genre. Her plots delve deeply into the challenges of young adulthood, and family dynamics. Her latest novel, The Knockout Queen, is described by the LA Times as “..a dazzling, darkly comic novel of love, violence and friendship in the California suburbs…” Queen is full of verve and drawn in colors as vibrant as a David Hockney landscape. She “takes a familiar plotline—a pair of teen misfits form an unlikely but life-altering friendship—and turns it into an arrestingly original, darkly comic meditation on moral ambiguity.” (Kirkus) A stunner of a novel…beautiful, sad, optimistic, and fully engaging.
