Twelve-year-old Sunday Fowler, the-middle-of-the-middle child, has always felt invisible in her large family. She’s endured cold showers, hand-me-down clothes, being called the wrong name more often than not, and being left out of the annual family picture. But when she and her family travel to the small town of Alma for a few months during the summer and Sunday finds herself left behind at a gas station, it’s the last straw. Sunday is determined to make her mark on her family one way or another. Through remodeling and fixing up the old library in town, meeting new friends, discovering a mysterious manuscript, befriending the local hermit (or trying to), and attempting to keep her brothers out of her hair and her sisters out of her business, Sunday discovers what leaving your mark actually means and that sometimes small gestures are worth much more than grand ones.

I was born in Cincinnati, grew up in various towns in Pennsylvania, went to college in Oklahoma, and found home in Breckenridge, Colorado. I love to write, read, hike, drink espresso, and attempt to keep my plants alive. I am a laugher and a dreamer. Mix all these together and you get me–a lucky writer of middle grade fiction.
