Zinnia and the Bees


MIDDLE GRADE NOVEL

My yarn bomb flops.
My older brother (aka my best friend and yarn bombing accomplice) leaves without a word.
And then the worst ever of worst evers: BEES. IN. MY. HAIR.

Think you’ve had a lousy day? Just wait until you read about Zinnia’s. Between a missing brother, a mother who doesn’t get her, and a nosy new neighbor who seems to notice way too much—especially when it comes to Zinnia’s buzzzzzy new friends—her day is challenging, to say the least. But learning to trust herself might just be the toughest challenge of all, as Zinnia discovers in this irresistible story about discovering the true meaning of home.
