About the author:

KIRA VOROBIYOVA was born in Kiev, Ukraine. She moved to the United States at age of 11. Isolated and wistful, she found solace in the shadows of movie theatres and the familiar feel of books within her hands. Kira later studied film in Eastern Canada and hopes to pursue the craft of storytelling across multiple mediums. Damsels of June, her debut novel, draws on memories of childhood mischief in her beloved city during the pivotal years of post-Soviet turbulence.

Damsels of June

Authored by Kira Vorobiyova
Edition: First

Dessa Faustova is a gifted Ukrainian ballerina on the cusp of preadolescence. With fellow dancers Klara and Inna, she comes into possession of a mysteriously coded address book, but their journey to decrypt its meaning stalls abruptly when Dessa is implicated in the gruesome murder of a local predator. Desperate for answers, she enlists the help of her enigmatic Uncle Leo, a glamorous con artist with a penchant for gambling and theft, who may or may not have deadly ties to Kiev's burgeoning underworld of the early 1990s. Dessa's dangerous foray into darkness parallels an insidious mania sweeping a nation still reeling from decades of oppression.
