Meeting readers at the 2013 Chappaqua Children’s Book

Meeting readers at the 2013 Chappaqua Children’s Book Festival!



Check out my blog post at the Nerdy Book Club:
Ten Things My Dog Taught Me About Writing.

Lots of Exciting News!

I’m thrilled to announce that I have three new stand-alone novels on the way! All will be published
by Simon & Schuster/Aladdin in hardcover (at first).
Upcoming titles
Also, love the new jackets for JUST ANOTHER DAY IN MY INSANELY REAL LIFE, SOLVING ZOE and THIS IS ME FROM NOW ON!

xox,
Barbara

Praise for TRUTH OR DARE, coming in September!

“Dee has a keen ear for middle school worries. Her characters talk and act like young adolescents…This is a good book to give to middle schoolers, especially young women on the verge of puberty. They will recognize themselves and their friends.”—School Library Journal

“Lia’s problems ring fully true, and her eventually learned life lessons are timeless.”—Kirkus Reviews

"Dee captures the anxious intensity of a middle school friend group with crystal clarity and warm sympathy…The book offers plenty of understanding, with some extra wisdom for girls worried about facing the harbingers of adolescence."—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
