Coming Soon: The House at 758 - 10/17/17

We are so excited to announce the upcoming release of Kathryn Berla's newest YA novel, The House at 758. This story of loss and renewal is sure to keep readers rooting for main character Krista from the first to the very last page. Kirkus Review calls it “A moving, mysterious coming-of-age story.”


Sixteen year old Krista is still grieving the untimely death of her mother when her father's new girlfriend moves into their home. He's already moved on and wants Krista to do the same, but she's not ready to resume a normal life yet. Distancing herself from those around her, Krista spends all of her time obsessively watching a mysterious house, the house at 758.   When a fellow classmate, Jake, takes a sudden interest in her, Krista feels excited for the first time in two years, but feelings of guilt consume her, and she ends up pushing Jake away.   It isn't until her grandfather makes a surprise visit from Venezuela that Krista is finally able to confront her grief and begin to let things go.


Kathryn Berla is the author of La Casa 758 (Penguin Random House, Spain) and the YA novels 12 Hours in Paradise and Dream MeThe House at 758, an English translation of La Casa 758, will be released by Amberjack Publishing October 2017.  

Kathryn graduated from the University of California in Berkeley with a degree in English, but she takes the most pride in having studied creative writing under Walter van Tilburg Clark at the University of Nevada.  

Kathryn lives with her three sons and husband in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area, which she would never leave because she can’t think of another place with as much to offer, including the proximity of her entire family.
