I am thrilled to announce that Scholastic Canada will publish my third novel, DAYS THAT END IN Y in February 2013.
Here are some things to look forward to: fireworks, Little League baseball games, old high school yearbooks, bicycle missions, doggie drama, a wedding, at least three major misunderstandings, and as always, a few surprises.
This will be the final book in the Clarissa and Benji series,* which is very bittersweet. I adore Clarissa and company and in many ways I feel like I could write about them forever. However, I consider the books to be a middle school arc and there was a clear end in sight (ie: high school). I am sad to let them go, but happy with where I left them. I hope readers will agree!
STAY TUNED for an exciting contest opportunity which may well bring you fame and fortune- or at the very least, some free books, a workshop with yours truly, and internet super-stardom. Intrigued? More info coming in early September! Teachers and librarians you will DEFINITELY want to check back!
In the meantime, look for the French edition of Love is a Four-Letter Word, entitled <A comme amour> this fall!
*If anyone can come up with a better series name, I am all ears. The Word Books? Clarissa Chronicles?
