I’m going to say TUCK EVERLASTING by Natalie Babbitt gives me that #FridayFeeling because I love the prose, characters, and story. It’s a universal book. Every single one of us will be touched by pain and loss in our lives. We all experience physical challenges. We all must grow older. And we all wonder what it would be like to live forever. It seems like it should be a gift, but is it? I love it when writers explore the dark side of seemingly good things and then give us truths to think about.
Trudi Trueit knew she’d found her life’s passion after writing (and directing) her first play in the fourth grade. Since then, she’s been a newspaper journalist, television news reporter and anchor, and freelance writer, but her favorite career is what she does now—writing for kids and tweens. She’s published100 fiction and nonfiction titles for young readers, including The Sister Solution, Stealing Popular (Aladdin MIX) and the Secrets of a Lab Rat series (Aladdin). Look for her new book, My Top Secret Dares and Don’ts (Aladdin MIX) in the spring of 2017.
