ARLENE SEQUEL AVAILABLE – March 26, 2013
Kids are always asking us, what will the sequel be about? Well, the story is about change: how to make it and how to take it. Arlene and her friends land in a heap of trouble when they try to lead a revolution to make Greenwood School more “green.” There are new characters: Mr. Goldberg, the new fifth grade teacher, and Arlene’s Uncle James, who is a little different, just like Arlene. One really difficult change is that Arlene and Lauren’s friendship begins to dwindle.
Check out an excerpt from the book here. And don’t forget to keep us in mind for an author visit and presentation about disability and difference this semester. Just send us an email. There’s no charge and we’ll donate a copy of the books to your school library. And don’t forget to get your copy of Arlene, the Rebel Queen today!
The art of rebellion lives on!
