Our Last Book Launch: Barrie Summy!


Yes, peeps, it's true. We're launching our very last classmate this week.

Please lift your glasses in an enthusiastic clink for Barrie Summy and her humorous tween mystery I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES.

                          Ya gotta admit this cover's a beaut!

And here's the hot-off-the-press scoop!

A girl. A guy. A ghost. A heist. Yikes!

Sherry (short for Sherlock) Holmes Baldwin wants more mall time, less homework and a certain cute guy. Instead she's recruited by her mother's ghost to prevent a rhino heist at San Diego's Wild Animal Park.

Meet reluctant sleuth Sherry Holmes Baldwin!


And, believe us, you'll totally fall for this hilarious, sassy, resistant, cell-phone-toting heroine as she juggles a tricky mystery, a ghost-mother, a doubting BFF and, of course, Josh Morton, the coolest, cutest guy in the Southwest .

I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES (the first in the series) goes on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, December 9. Head down to your local Barnes & Nobles or your neighborhood indie or order online here.

Ya know what's really got Barrie excited? She's finally caught up with the rest of the class. And the next time we do a group signing, she'll have her very own book to sign too.

Congratulations, Barrie, you're a Real Published Author now!

Enjoy your launch week on our blog!

Come on, people, show her some love.

See you all tomorrow when we unveil the fantastic book trailer for I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES!
