Mrsa | Blythe Woolston's Sophomore YA Novel Catch & Release Takes Readers On A Journey Of Survival After A Frightening Disease


MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)– MRSA is a terrifying bacteria, one that, can easily alter or end the life of those who come into contact with it. In Catch Release , author Blythe Woolston describes the disease and its aftermath honestly and brutally through the eyes of a girl whose life has been ravaged by an illness that no one seems to understand.

Polly is a girl in high school who has things pretty good, with a loving boyfriend and college aspirations. All that changes, however, the day she contracts the super-bacteria MRSA. Polly miraculously survives the infection but is left with only one eye and horrible scarring on her face. Since she is one of the first victims of what could become an epidemic, she is often feared when she goes out in public, as if she still carries the contagion.


As she works to regain her strength, Polly starts to wonder what her future will look like. She begins to disassociate herself from her old life, before she lost her eye and gained the scars.

When former high school football star Odd Estes”the other lone survivor of the town’s MRSA outbreak”insists that Polly join him on a spontaneous fishing road trip, she is reluctant. But the time that Polly spends with Odd changes her outlook on life and moves her beyond her experience with MRSA.

Catch Release explores how a dangerous disease can dramatically change the lives it touches and how people can overcome the least expected obstacles in their lives.

Praise for Catch Release :
“This is not a romance, but a tale of two people thrown together after their world has been turned upside down. Each is unique, vividly complicated and true. Engaging writing and characters lift this above the typical clichd story
