While doing the Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year, I ‘met’ Stephanie Faris. She’s pretty awesome, exactly the kind of blogger I always hope to meet during these sorts of challenges. Clever, friendly, interesting. Stephanie writes books for younger readers and her last book 30 Days of No Gossip sounds like a lot of fun–exactly the kind of book I would have read and enjoyed around grade four.
I’m not blogging to talk about it, though. Stephanie has a brand new book coming out, and I’m participating in the cover reveal. So without further ado, I present to you, the fantastic cover for Stephanie Faris’ book, 25 Roses:
Here’s a little bit about 25 Roses:
Valentine’s Day means one thing at Stanton Middle School: students will send each other chocolate roses. Each year, Mia Hartley watches while the same group of students gets roses and everyone else is left out. This year, she decides things will be different. As the student assigned to write names on the cards, Mia purchases 25 roses and writes her own cards, designating them to 25 people she’s personally chosen. But she soon learns that playing matchmaker is much more complicated than she thought it would be.
Congratulations on a fantastic cover, Stephanie. I hope the book is super successful!
25 Roses is coming soon, but if you have some little readers at home (or perhaps you like MG novels yourself) you can also check out 30 Days of No Gossip which is available now:
Can a middle school gossip queen change her ways, or will she lose her BFF for good? Find out in this M!X original novel.
Maddie Evans prides herself on being the gossip queen of Troy Middle School. She is the first person her classmates go to when they need the latest news on the ins-and-outs of TMS—and Maddie never disappoints.
Her best friend since birth, Vi, isn’t crazy about Maddie’s penchant for passing on rumors, but it’s never been an issue in their friendship. Until the day Maddie lets slip who Vi is crushing on—in front of her crush.
Vi is furious, and she confronts Maddie with an ultimatum: no gossip for 30 days, or twelve years of sisterhood goes down the drain.
Maddie agrees, but only a week into the challenge, she gets one of the juiciest pieces of gossip EVER—something that could affect the future of the school. Will she be able to keep her mouth shut and tame her ways? Or will she be left standing alone with no one to hear her stories?
