Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Three for a Girl is here!

Here we are again. Launch day.

This time, friends, it’s my new novel, Three for a Girl, available today as a Kindle book ($2.99) or in paperback ($8.49).

Here’s the plot, in a nutshell:

LeeAnn Heartney, seventeen and desperate to get away from her dysfunctional family in the summer of 1973, cooks up a plan. Her mother, Arlene, has rented out the top floor of their quirky, ramshackle house to a three-man ambulance crew, and LeeAnn thinks their old beaut of a machine—a converted ‘58 Caddie—would make the perfect getaway car for her dreamed-of flight to California. The only kink in her strategy is what to do about her sister, Jeannie, three years younger and in no way ready to deal with the craziness of life in that house without LeeAnn to watch her back.

It’s the summer of the Senate Watergate hearings too, and Arlene Heartney is obsessed with them to distraction. Everything’s falling apart, it seems—secrets hiding just beneath the surface like rot. All too familiar.

If things can just stay patched together till August, LeeAnn knows she can get out of there in one sane piece, but on the eve of her departure catastrophe drags the household’s hidden anguish into the light and everything has to change.

This is a slow rollout, since I haven’t distributed any advance copies or asked for early reviews. If you can, though, get your copy today and try to post a review soon. We’ll definitely need great word of mouth for this one.

To everyone who has stuck with me since Yesterday Road way back in 2013, thank you. I always approach a new novel with a combination of hope and dread, but I’ve learned over these years that I can always count on you.

Three for a Girl is a special one for me. It’s been in my imagination a long time, and now it’s finally here. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so close to one of my protagonists as I do to LeeAnn Heartney, so I hope that shows through.
