Read full description of the books Going Over:
It is February 1983, and Berlin is a divided city with a miles-long barricade separating east from west. But the city isn't the only thing that is divided. Ada lives among the rebels, punkers, and immigrants of Kreuzberg in West Berlin. Stefan lives in East Berlin, in a faceless apartment bunker of Friedrichshain. Bound by love and separated by circumstance, their only chance for a life together lies in a high-risk escape. But will Stefan find the courage to leap? Or will forces beyond his control stand in his way? National Book Award finalist Beth Kephart presents a story of daring and sacrifice in this three-starred reviewed Junior Library Guild Selection and Booklist Top 10 Historical Fiction for Youth.
Read information about the authorThough I've been writing since I was nine years old, I didn't publish beyond my high school literary journal until I was a new mother. My first published essay was in Iowa Woman; subsequently, I published short stories in dozens of literary magazines—learning, always, what worked or what didn't by reading far more than I wrote.
My first book, A SLANT OF SUN, a memoir, was a National Book Award finalist. My second, INTO THE TANGLE OF FRIENDSHIP, was supported by an NEA grant. These gifts give a writer momentum, and hope. To date I've published five memoirs, an autobiography of a river called FLOW: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF PHILADELPHIA'S SCHUYLKILL RIVER, and the first of what will be four young adult novels for HarperTeen. UNDERCOVER has been named a best book of the year by Kirkus, Amazon, School Library Journal, Not Your Mother's Bookclub, and others. Most recently I've published a corporate fable called ZENOBIA. A picture book is in the works, as is a novel for adults.
Most of the time, I run a boutique marketing communications firm called Fusion. When I'm not doing that, I'm taking photographs, ballroom dancing, cooking, gardening, and, of course, reading. I frequently review for the Chicago Tribune.
I reflect on the writing and photographing life with daily blog postings at www.beth-kephart.blogspot.com/ I hope you'll visit me there.
