Here it is!!! I’m so excited to share this with you: the cover of my upcoming middle-grade novel, The Nerviest Girl in the World, which will by published by Knopf Books for Young Readers on August 18, 2020! This cover, which makes me squeak with joy every time I look at it, is by the awesome Risa Rodil. I’m over the moon!
I love it so much. The book is about silent film and ostrich-ranching and wild rides on horseback—and Risa captured all the excitement I feel about this story, which grew out of my time in East County San Diego, where the book is set.
(And just WAIT until you see the interior illustrations by Mike Deas! So great!)
August still feels far away, but I know the time will go fast. The book is already available for pre-order at Indiebound, Amazon, and B&N! (Pre-ordering is a really great—and much appreciated—way for you to help give a book a boost.)
Stay tuned for an ARC giveaway coming soon!
