But when Luci accuses her diving partner of sabotage, no one believes her and her chances of making the diving team sink fast. Things hit rock bottom when Luci has an underwater crisis. Suddenly, making the dive team isn’t her biggest worry. She’ll have to conquer her fears if she ever wants to make it to Mars.

Who Wrote Luciana: Braving the Deep (American Girl: Girl of the Year 2018, Book 2)

author
Erin Teagan

Erin Teagan worked in biochemistry labs for 10 years. She knew that in science, especially working on research drugs, bringing your work home could actually be punishable by law. This left lots of time to work on her writing after work. Erin’s debut middle-grade novel, <i>The Friendship Experiment</i>, was published by Houghton Mifflin in fall 2016. Erin lives in Virginia with her family.
