Show Notes

Kate Hope Day is the author of In the Quick, a novel about an ambitious young astronaut whose love affair threatens the rescue of a lost crew. 

“I read In the Quick with wonder at the deeply imaginative world Kate Hope Day created. Feminist and thrilling, this novel centers around a precocious, brilliant character named June. I happily followed June into deep space, but I would have followed her anywhere. What a wonderful story. I highly recommend this novel.” - Ann Napolitano, New York Times bestselling author of Dear Edward
