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…
