Ninth grader Rachel Yerks greeted dozens of fans at Darren Winston Books and Prints in Sharon on Saturday, April 20 from 2:00 to 4:00pm, while signing copies of her latest book, Finding Eliza. Proceeds from the sale of her book will benefit Sharon Day Care Center.

Finding Eliza is about a young girl trapped by circumstance and living out her mother’s fate. Imprisoned by a government that knows she’s innocent, she must fight to break free; as well as to catch the person who deserves to be behind bars. A tale of courage, trust, and adventure as a young girl yearns for her mother; the same mother that her captors yearn to kill.

The cover art for Finding Eliza is by eighth grader Lorrisa Luo.

Rachel also got a nice write-up in the Litchfield County Times.
