Anchors aweigh! LIFEBOAT 12, my debut middle grade novel-in-verse, is in bookstores NOW! In a *STARRED* review, SLJ says, "This stirring novel-in-verse based on a true story is an edge-of-your-seat survival tale, an extensively researched work of historical fiction, and an exemplar of the form."

 

Also new for 2018 is SHAKING THINGS UP: 14 Young Women Who Changed the World. Take a look at my interview with Mr. Schu and the book trailer here

 

Wow! ADA'S VIOLIN was named an E.B. White Honor Book! Quite the honor indeed to be in the company of some of my favorite picture books from 2016. See photos below.
