Meanwhile, her cross-country pen pal, Molly, has started taken acting classes and is super jealous of Olive, but doesn’t want to tell her. Molly goes on a mission to get on a commercial, too, with her new friend from class. Follow the secrets and threatened friendship through reading the jealous emails and alternating first-person points of view to discover Olive’s plan to make everything right.
Hello! I write chapter books, middle grade books, and YA books (under the name M.C. Atwood), and teach creative writing and publishing at Rowan University. I LOVE doing all of that. And when I’m not writing or teaching, I’m going to haunted houses, eating (dairy free!) ice cream, and/or diving into magical worlds feet-first. I’m also hanging out with my two cats–and by hanging out, I mean doing whatever they say. What? They talk to me! That’s normal. . . right?
Since studying at art school, Gareth Llewhellin has been lucky enough to turn passion into career, illustrating and painting for all forms of publishing and more over the last 20 years. He lives just outside Winchester in Hampshire, UK, with his wife and two young boys, taking inspiration from their playful ways and habits for the next thing to put pencil to paper.
