I am so in love with this title, and so thrilled that the folks at HarperTeen loved it as much as I did.
The word describes something holy and revered, which I think works on SO many levels with what is happening in my book.
(Another happy sigh.)
In honor of the occasion, I'm posting 2 music videos, the first being the only song I could find with the word "hallowed" in it that I could connect with my book:
The second video is OneRepublic's "All Fall Down," which was one of those songs I listened to again and again while I was in the process of writing Hallowed that reflected the emotion of the book.
