I know most of you are probably focussed on chocolate today, but here is some soup you simply must taste — this big bowl
of Congratulations for Kerry Madden. Her middle grade novel, Jessie’s Mountain (Viking, 2008), is officially out today!
I’m beyond excited because I’ve been anxiously waiting for this book, the third in Kerry’s Maggie Valley trilogy, featuring aspiring songwriter, Livy Two. This time, Livy ventures to Nashville to make her dreams come true. Will she succeed? I know it’s going to be a great read, judging from the first two books, Gentle’s Holler (Viking, 2005) and Louisiana’s Song (Viking, 2007).
JESSIE’S MOUTAIN by Kerry Madden
(Viking, 2008), ages 9-12
Take out your big spoons for this one, folks. One little taste, and you’ll be ravenous for more.
Two hearts in honor of Livy Two!
Thank you for writing such heartwarming, lyrical books that shine the light of family, Kerry!
P.S. In case you haven’t heard, Kerry is running a contest until February 18th, where she’ll give away 3 signed copies of this book! Get all the details here.
