Friendship, Courage, & Standing Up for What's Right, a Middle Grade Book Talk & Signing
Jenny Goebel is the local author of Grave Images, The 39 Clues: Mission Hurricane, and Fortune Falls. She will discuss and sign Out of My Shell ($17.99 Scholastic Press), an inspiring and timely story of friendship, courage, and the magic that can happen when we stand up for what's right.
Olivia usually looks foward to her family's summer vacation, but not this year. Her parents have separated and her father is staying behind. She plans to spend the summer laying low, trying to ignore the hurt gnawing at her heart. But when she learns that the local sea turtle population is in serious risk of dying off, she knows she has to do something. Her chances of helping the turtles are slim, and she can't handle any more heartbreak. Will Olivia turn her back on her favorite animal to avoid the pain? Or will she find the courage to stand up for the turtles, and maybe heal herself in the process?
