STORM on Noah's Ark

Among her many novels, Donna Jo Napoli has written a number of teen books of Jewish interest, including Stones in Water (winner of the 1998 Sydney Taylor Book Award) and its sequel Fire in the Hills, The King of Mulberry Street (a 2006 Sydney Taylor Honor Book), and Daughter of Venice.

I interviewed her about her new novel STORM. It's an exciting and absorbing teen/adult crossover novel that takes place on Noah's Ark from the point of view of a young stowaway.

What a marvelous interview! Heidi's questions are provocative and quite original, and Donna Jo's answers are
so sincerely well-thought out. I'm really looking forward to reading this book! Thank you, Donna Jo and Heidi!
