The cover for ‘Snowflake’, written by former Scoil Dara Kilcock student Louise Nealon, has today been unveiled, with the book itself set for general sale in April 2021.
Author Nealon, who is also a keen Camogie player with her local club Cappagh Gaa, took to her Twitter page earlier today to show her delight at receiving a copy of her novel;
“I was just about holding it together until the postman delivered this”
Nealon also described how from an early age she got stuck into reading books and would go to Eason with her mother and choose a book to read;
“When I was a kid my mother used to take me to Eason and told me to choose a book. I cannot WAIT to walk into Eason in Manor Mills with my Mam and choose a book. My book”
Easons described the novel as; “A startling, honest, laugh & cry novel about growing up & leaving home, only to find that you’ve taken it with you. Snowflake is a novel for a generation, & for everyone who’s taken those first, terrifying steps towards adulthood”
