Summer reading

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Hi Everbody,

Summer is almost here and that means fun in the sun and vacations, and hopefully some fun summer reading!

In my case (at least when I was growing up,) summer always meant road trips. Every summer my family would pack up the car and we’d go on an adventure.  It was lots of fun (and of course, always a bit of drama too!)   Best of all, those trips gave me a lot to write about!

Can You Say Catastrophe? is the first book in The Mostly Miserable Life of April Sinclair series and it’s about the road trip April and her sisters take the summer April turns thirteen. April spends a good part of the trip wishing she was at summer camp with her friends (instead of in a hot camper with her little sisters), but when something big and unexpected happens, April realizes how much her sisters really mean to her.

Can You Say Catastrophe?

In The Mallory McDonald series, in On the Road with Mallory, Mallory goes on a road trip with her family to the Grand Canyon. She’s so excited to go, then at the last minute finds out that her annoying cousin Kate is coming along. There’s LOTS of drama (and some tears.) Of course, a few laughs too . . . especially when it comes to mule riding!

I hope you’ll add both books to your summer reading list!

Talk to you soon!
