Invisible Rules Rule by Deb Tish

It’s finally here. Launch week for my children’s novel, The Invisible Rules of the Zoe Lama, which comes out on Thursday. Two days before Harry Potter. No pressure there. Today I’ll go off-topic (but you’re used to that by now) and post an excerpt from the book, which is the first in a series of middle grade novels. If you happen to know any 8-12-year-old girls who would get a…

Here I Am, Stuck In The Middle by Deb Kristy
