I’m over on the Middle Grade Minded blog today with five fun facts about MACY McMILLAN! Plus, a chance to win a signed copy of the book. 🙂
MACY McMILLAN AND THE RAINBOW GODDESS is out today! Cookies for everyone! 😀
A summer read for fans of Sharon Creech and Kate DiCamillo.
Olivia has been Macy McMillan’s best friend ever since Macy transferred to Hamilton Elementary from Braeside School for the Deaf. But then their sixth grade teacher assigned that embarrassing family tree project, and Olivia made a joke about Macy’s father, and now neither girl is speaking—or signing—to the other.
It couldn’t have happened at a worse time. With her mother getting married and an ugly For Sale sign jammed into their yard, Macy could really use a best friend right now. But it seems the only person who has time for her these days is Iris Gillan from next door. And it’s not like a crabby, old woman who doesn’t even know sign language is going to be any comfort. Right?
MACY McMILLAN AND THE RAINBOW GODDESS is a Junior Library Guild 2017 selection.
“Told as a verse-novel, in a light yet poignant style … there is much to admire here including a clear plot line, rich character development, and sudden, incisive humour … Highly recommended.”—CM Magazine
“…spare yet poignant narrative … Macy’s life lessons are realistic and illuminating; that she is deaf adds yet another dimension to an already powerful tale.”—Kirkus

I was stunned and so grateful to be awarded the Surrey Board of Trade’s Special Achievement Award today at the opening ceremony of the Surrey International Writers’ Conference. The SiWC has been very significant in my writing life for more than ten years now, so this was AMAZING. I’m still a bit boggled. 😀
