Hey, guys, I wrote a book! It’s for middle grade readers and it’s about a girl named Nina who on the first day of seventh grade discovers her best friend has dumped her for a cool new girl. Now Nina’s stuck sitting at the peanut-free table with the other food allergic kids, trying to figure out what to do about her social life, love life (or lack thereof) and family life (particularly how to deal with her mom, an overly-worried cookbook writer who creates recipes for people with food allergies).
P.S. My very nice review from the School Library Journal: “Nina is a likable character and her story feels authentic. A charming addition to upper elementary and middle school collections.”
