Beyond the Lines (Kids Like You Book 2)
I began the journey of writing middle grade historical fiction at the request of my last few classes. They hounded me to write a story they could read, and Between the Lines was the result. As an added twist, they loved Between the Lines so much, they asked me to write a sequel. What an honor! I wrote the sequel last summer and have been busy editing, choosing cover art (with the help of students) and inching closer to publication each day.
The highlights are too numerous to mention here (I know you’re busy and have other things to do), but the most exciting thing to mention is the book launch which the students are coordinating. Please join us on Wednesday, March 30th, 2016 at Heritage Elementary School from 5:30 to 7:30 PM in Room 108-109 and celebrate with us.
Here’s some information about the book:
The Dream Girls—Hattie, Crackers, and Beverly Jo—are back with the same determination and resolve they displayed in Between the Lines.
This time, it’s Crackers who has a dream. She has oodles of talent, can outshoot any guy, and she wants to be the first girl on the boys’ basketball team. Everybody knows she’s the best player at school.
The problem is, the rules say: No girls allowed on the team. Ever.
But the Dream Girls have challenged old-fashioned notions before, and they’re not about to give up now. Beverly Jo rocks the world with an ingenious plan, Hattie sets the wheels in motion, and Crackers gives her all. For this threesome, nothing is impossible.
Both Crackers and Beverly Jo (the real people the characters are based on) will be attending the launch and signing books for students! How cool is that!
