TE Carter was born in New England and has lived in New England for pretty much her entire life. Throughout her career, she's done a lot of things, although her passion has always been writing. When she's not writing, she can generally be found reading classic literature, obsessing over Game of Thrones (she's one hundred percent Team Lannister), playing Xbox, organizing her comic collection, or binge watching baking competitions. She continues to live in New England with her husband and their two cats. I Stop Somewhere is her first novel.
I Stop Somewhere is an achingly beautiful novel that delves into the issues surrounding rape and the treatment of sexual assault victims. . . I Stop Somewhere handles a sensitive topic with grace and beauty. The lyrical prose gently leads readers to an understanding of Ellie's situation without harsh or graphic detail."--VOYA, starred review
"In a breathy, lyrical voice, Carter tells an all-too-familiar story about violence, rape culture, and the damaging shortcomings of the justice system in response to sexual assault. Carter builds a deeply evocative setting--a town besieged by failing industry and a vampiric real-estate developer--which is a fitting background for a story about a community turning its back on its vulnerable residents. . . the pointed conversation about rape culture and violence remains timely and important. Hand to readers who loved Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak (1999)."--Booklist
"This is heartbreakingly realistic in illustrating the ways society fails girls in Ellie's shoes. The author is also very skilled at conveying the brutality of the attacks on Ellie and the other girls without gratuitous or sensationalizing detail."--School Library Journal
