Calling students and teachers!
My debut novel, Smack Dab in the Middle of Maybe, is the story of 12-year-old Cricket and a field cricket named Charlene who find adventure in an overgrown ghost town in Electric City, Mississippi. They follow a thirty-year-old clue trail left by an eccentric artist in search of a secret room that may or may not exist–all to try to win back Cricket’s run-away mother. Cricket must use her wits and just a smidgen of luck to live off the land in a Mississippi winter and put together the pieces of an increasingly baffling puzzle.
Just like time spent outdoors, reading can be an adventure! Join me, Cricket, and Charlene in these fun activities:
