“The dahlias on Sara’s dress scrunched and stretched with her body
as she spun on the grass and Alana couldn’t understand why no one else was
mesmerized.” 
Tiny Ruins is a coming-of-age and coming out
story that follows Alana, as she grows up, discovers, and tries to understand
her bisexuality. Small windows offer us a glimpse of Alana’s memories, often
fragmentary, fleeting, and touching. When she confides in her sister that she
is attracted to girls, she is met with disbelief, and so the secret is kept and
Alana continues as the outsider looking in.

PRAISE FOR TINY RUINS:

“A novella for a new generation, Tiny Ruins is
smart, funny, charming, completely unlike anything else I’ve read. Warm, heartbreaking, perfectly paced. Small moments, deceptive in their simplicity, are loaded with meaning–but as in life, it’s the silences between that split you open. I loved
this book.”

Jacqueline Baker,
author of 
The Broken Hours

“Nicole Haldoupis is versed in the art of the small verse, the flash, the fast. In Tiny Ruins she moves us through Alana’s journey to independence and discovery one bite-sized chunk at a time. Mimicking the ways we remember, these fragments and snapshots hit the highlights and the painfully human. Short, sweet, and to the point. Nothing tiny about it; brilliant in its final impact.”

Lisa Bird-Wilson, author of Probably Ruby
“I honestly don’t know how Nicole Haldoupis does it, but
she does – the short prose pieces that comprise Tiny Ruins beam a
light on everyday life in the contemporary world – a light recognizable, yet
startling, funny, poignant. You’ll recognize these characters, and cheer for
them. Haldoupis makes private moments resonate widely; she comes at things
sideways in these understated, quirky snapshots that feel so real you’ll cringe
with recognition – in a good way. Tiny Ruins is a voice-driven trove of stories
and above all, addictive reading. This debut is a gift, and far from tiny –
it’s a big gulp of fresh air.”

Jeanette Lynes, author of The Small Things that
End the World
