The world is wide awake — are you?

Here's the trailer for my next book with Helen Frost, Wake Up!

From a starred review in KIRKUS:
Lieder again demonstrates that he is not only a master of catching light where it falls,
but capturing intimate moments only the most patient of observers would notice.
His latest jaw-dropping images reveal with preternatural acumen details subtle
as the shadow of a praying mantis on a peony petal, feathers lining a tree swallow's nest,
and the tiniest of "newly hatched" cellar spiders dancing on a blade of grass, as Frost notes
"New life is everywhere — / open your eyes."
