New Book Announcement: DAYS THAT END IN Y

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?

  1. My daughter was thrilled to see she correctly predicted the background colour of the cover. Of course she also can’t wait to read it.

  2. The students at Trudeau in St. Thomas will be so excited to hear the news about the new book. We also look forward to purchasing A comme Amour!!! Congratulations!
