Glitter Girl by Toni Runkle and Stephen Webb
Is there one among you who does not know the angst and agony that is junior high?
The raging hormones, the insecurity, the struggle to find oneself, to deal with shifting friendships and the feelings of alienation?
I would dare to say, “Probably Not”. Not if you have a daughter or if you were in junior high yourself.
My writing partner Stephen Webb and I have written a middle grade novel that deals with that transitions from child to adolescent, from a girl’s point of view. Perfect for 5th to 8th grade readers. It’s available for sale at Amazon:
“GLITTER GIRL flows like a sparkling river through the shifting sands of 8th-grade Alpha Girls and their BFFs. Puberty rocks at Wendell Wilkie Jr. High, where the motto might as well be ‘Study? I’m here to see my friends!'” — Richard Peck, Newbery Award Winner”A fun book for teens and tweens. GLITTER GIRL has a lot to say to teenage readers, given it’s the most influential time of their lives. Mostly it’s about friendship and loyalty, and doing the right thing; perfect for a high school library!” — Wondrous Reads
” Runkle and Webb deliver an empowering message about striving to be true to oneself for middle school readers.
