#Hello? #WashingtonIsland #DoorCountyWI @LizaWiemer

We spent the day exploring Washington Island, Wisconsin and visiting many of the spots that were discussed in the book Hello? by the very talented Liza Weimer.....I hope you enjoy our journey through pictures.

Tricia: A girl struggling to find her way after her beloved grandma's death.
Emerson: A guy who lives his life to fulfill promises, real and hypothetical.
Angie: A girl with secrets she can only express through poetry.
Brenda: An actress and screenplay writer afraid to confront her past.
Brian: A potter who sets aside his life for Tricia, to the detriment of both.
Linked and transformed by one phone call, Hello? weaves together these five Wisconsin teens' stories into a compelling narrative of friendship and family, loss and love, heartbreak and healing, serendipity, and ultimately hope.

Told from all five viewpoints: narration (Tricia), narration (Emerson), free verse poetry (Angie), screenplay format (Brenda), narration and drawings (Brian).

My debut YA novel, HELLO?, was published by Spencer Hill on November 10, 2015. I am also the author of two non-fiction adult books, short stories, and newspaper and magazine articles. A pre-school to high school educator now writing YA fiction full time, which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! And I'm a diehard Green Bay Packers fan.

My author website is and I have a blog for books

Unique "job" experiences: I spent a summer selling popcorn in a Koepsell's popcorn wagon while listening to awesome music on the Summerfest grounds in Milwaukee. I also know my way around a fender and a quarter panel and under the hood of a car. I spent a few years driving to accident scenes, scrapyards, hospitals, auto repair shops as a claims adjuster for an insurance company. 

I started WhoRuBlog to address YA issues and share my passion for reading. 
Besides articles that address tough issues facing young adults, I have author interviews and book giveaways. Check them out. :D

Happy reading, Liza

The sheer level of brilliance of writing in this novel is off the charts. Written in poem and script, as well as paragraphed chapters this book shows the range, depth and diversity that @lizamwiemer processes. An exceptional book that tackles tough topics that both adults and young adults can relate to and be moved by. HELLO? captures how traumatic events shape us and how friendships and love can help us form a new personal narrative. Set in beautiful and picturesque Washington Island and Door County Wisconsin this novel takes us into small town America, while capturing universal topics and experiences. 5 huge stars!!!
