Take one missing uncle, a lucky skull ring, a run-away tarantula, lots of pickles, and an "ordinary" family. Put it all together and you have my debut middle grade novel, THE UPSIDE OF ORDINARY! Full of humor and heart, THE UPSIDE OF ORDINARY is about eleven-year-old Jermaine so enamored with the idea of becoming famous that she decides to make a reality TV show about her family. Her quest for fame leads to some unscrupulous choices, but Jermaine eventually discovers a better way to achieve notoriety, and an upside of being part of an ordinary but loving family.
I am giving away five signed copies of THE UPSIDE OF ORDINARY... Email me to enter: email@example.com. Winners will be drawn randomly
