Month: February 2019
It wasn’t so much that I decided to write a middle grade book as that the story decided it for me. I like writing about tweens because they are just coming into their own as people…
While I fully admit I was uncomfortable with the central plot, I don’t think just because something makes you uncomfortable it should be avoided… it was a well written, gripping adventure and I read through it quickly, wanting to know what would happen to Ruby.
I loved the uniqueness of Ruby’s voice. She really feels fleshed out, vibrant, and her own person. I love that she’s written in a very emotionally honest way that also feels appropriate for an 11-year old.
