MIDDLE GRADE MAYHEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GREG LEITICH SMITH
|It's absolute Middle Grade Mayhem on our second floor this afternoon! Not one, not two, but THREE awesome local authors are here today with their brand new middle grade novels. Jennifer Ziegler is here with Revenge of the Flower Girls, in which three triplets have to stop their older sister's wedding. Varian Johnson is here with The Great Greene Heist, the story of Jackson Greene, former middle school con artist, as he crafts a scheme to stop the wrong student from winning the election for school president. Greg Leitich Smith is here with Little Green Men at the Mercury Inn, a lighthearted adventure story about an alien encounter at an aging Cocoa Beach motel.|
All about Revenge of the Flower Girls
JENNIFER ZIEGLER is a native Texan and a lover of family, history, barbecue, and loyal dogs. Although she only has one sister, she does know what it is like to have four kids living in the same house. She is the author of several books for young people, including Sass & Serendipity, and How Not to Be Popular. Jennifer lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, author Chris Barton, and their four children.
All about The Great Greene Heist
VARIAN JOHNSON couldn't decide while growing up whether he wanted to be an engineer or a writer, so he decided to do both. His first novel A Red Polka Dot In A World Full of Plaid made the Essence Magazine bestseller list in March 2006. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and two cocker spaniels.
All about Little Green Men at the Mercury Inn
