Michel Stone's debut novel The Iguana Tree, which Library Journal says "recalls the work of John Steinbeck," received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and an IPPY Award as one of the top novels published in 2012 by an independent press. The book was also named a spring 2012 "Okra Pick" from the Southern Independent Booksellers Association.  The Iguana Tree was recently named a finalist for Foreword Reviews Book of the Year in the multicultural fiction category.

The Iguana Tree was released in March 2012. Check out the video below if you missed the party!

"The Iguana Tree is a triumph—an enjoyable and informative story on an important topic. Ms. Stone has found a compelling realistic fiction voice and established herself as an author to watch."
