One summer. One girl. One plan. Inspired by her late grandmother, Nina Ross sets out to do 65 anonymous good things for her family and neighbors, one for each day of summer vacation, to find out if doing good actually does any good. But things don’t turn out exactly as she envisioned.
Michele is the author of four middle grade novels - Ethan Marcus Makes His Mark, Ethan Marcus Stands Up (both Simon & Schuster), The Summer I Saved the World in 65 Days, and Calli Be Gold (both Random House). Her books have been nominated for many state reading awards, received several honors, and have been translated into other languages. She loves to write about underdog type kids who do big things.
Michele lives in the Chicago area with her family. Her three children think her most amazing talent is that she can tell the difference between pink and white Good ‘n Plentys while chewing them with her eyes closed. She loves to travel, most recently visiting Portugal, France, and England.
