James Klise’s new YA novel, “I’ll Take Everything You Have” (Algonquin Young Readers), is a queer coming-of-age crime story set in 1934 Chicago. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews promises “passionate, cinematic scenes” and “a thrillingly queer adventure.” Publishers Weekly calls the book “an arresting narrative… and a mesmerizing snapshot of 1930s Chicago.” Mr. Klise’s previous novels for teens include the Edgar Award-winning “The Art of Secrets” and the ALA Stonewall Honor-winning “Love Drugged.” The author lives in Chicago, and for the past two decades, he has overseen a very busy high school library.
