Cover Reveal for THE PAGES BETWEEN US! (And an ARC giveaway)

This is a super special day. My darling friend Lindsey Leavitt co-wrote a middle grade novel with me. Sometimes we had so much fun writing this we felt guilty. We wrote it in emails and texts to each other.

“Should we be giggling this much??” –something we often asked each other





Here’s the summary:

Piper and Olivia have been best friends since…well, forever. They aren’t about to let a little thing like middle school get in their way—but they’re distressed to find that their new schedules aren’t giving them enough together-time.

Luckily, an idea sparks when Piper finds a cute sparkly notebook to disguise as her “French Class” notebook. It’s genius—now the two BFFs can stick together all the time. And document their adventures—you know, for anthropology’s sake.

But as the two navigate the tricky new world of sixth grade, they realize that they may need to branch out more than they originally thought. Their notebook, once a life raft, begins to feel like a big responsibility. Can they grow up, without growing apart?

Told in letters, posters, blog posts, homework assignments, and more, The Pages Between Us is a totally fun, totally earnest snapshot of middle grade friendship—and what it truly means to be there for someone during the ups, downs, and everything in between.


And now, here’s the downright adorable cover. Thank you, HarperCollins! Coming February 9, 2016 to a bookstore or internet “buy button” near you…

So in true Lindsey-Robin fashion, we discussed the book…in the form of letters. Because it’s sort of our Thing now. Head over to Mundie Kids to read more AND to enter the giveaway for an Advance Reader Copy!











Booth at the SCASLC

On March 11-13th, the South Carolina Association of School Librarians held their annual conference. I was not able to participate in person, but I did still manage to get a booth up with all my books. How? By my adorable parents! They spoke with hundreds of librarians and donated HUNDREDS of books to schools. I’m already hearing from librarians who say the books are being checked out and kids have signed up for the waiting list. Makes me SO PROUD and thankful to have such supportive parents. Check it out!


Have You Read Book 3?

Be sure to check out book 3 of THE CLASSROOM series before the final book releases on June 16. One student asked me, “Hey, is that guy on the cover supposed to be like that Ty Pennington dude from Extreme Home Makeover?” Yep. But with even more hair product.

Santa Barbara School Visits

I recently spent a week down in Santa Barbara presenting to groups of kids from every school in the district. They had to do something to earn a spot there–write an essay, join an after school book group, etc. So it was amazing to be a part of an event where the students, teachers, and coordinators were SO eager and showed their love of books. Fantastic week for an author!
