Look what I won!

A galley copy of Barbara O’Connor’s forthcoming book.

If you are a writer for middle grade readers, you want to study Barbara’s work. She writes killer first lines (“The day I decided to steal a dog was the same day my best friend, Luanne Godfrey, found out I lived in a car.” from How to Steal a Dog), weaves compelling tales and creates characters you think about long after you finish a book.

I am so excited. Can’t wait to read it!
