I’ve always wanted to be a rebel. Adventurous, however is not my middle name. That even extends to my wardrobe. I always follow the rules. No white after labor day, horizontal stripes make you look larger, black and brown don’t go together, and you don’t mix prints to name a few. Well, I may never become a true “rebel”, but I have become more and more of a fashion rebel.If you think this post is about fashion, then you are half correct. The fashion part is just a ruse to surprise my sister in this post. My sister just became a PUBLISHED author!!! Her book, “Last in a Long Line of Rebels”, hit the shelves on September 29th. While her book is officially Middle Grade, it is enjoyable for any age. The story is about a young girl named Lou, who spends her summer vacation trying to save her family home from being condemned. She and her friends encounter a civil war diary that holds many family secrets, and clues to hidden gold. Be sure to pick one up for yourself, your child, your grandchild, or a friend. It can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and Books A Million.
It is a really good story, well written and thoroughly enjoyable. I know what your thinking, of course she is going to say that, after all it is her sister. Nope, not a chance. Did I mention, she is my younger sister. So lets take inventory, she’s younger, an author, bigger boobs, skinnier, and now she is famous. Really??? Did I mention she is younger.
If I don’t hear from her, I guess I will know she doesn’t read my blog:( In all honesty, I love her and am extremely proud of her. And besides, I look younger (running joke), and my husband has more hair (no joke). Although adventurous is not my middle name, sarcasm might be.
UPDATE!!! Last in A Long Line of Rebels just got picked by Amazon as a “Book of the Month” in the 9-12 yr. old age category. I told you it was good!
