Ooligan Press is excited to announce our newest YA novel, LAUREL EVERYWHERE by debut author Erin Moynihan, set to launch November 10, 2020. LAUREL EVERYWHERE is an intimate depiction of the grief and mental-health issues often experienced with the loss of loved ones. The novel highlights complicated family relationships in the wake of tragedy: Laurel grapples with her own feelings of loss while her father spirals into a deeper depression, requiring a long stay in a hospital that specializes in grief.
