Just announced! Laura Resau's third "Notebook" novel is officially underway. The Jade Notebook is a sequel to The Indigo Notebook, which debuted in the fall of last year and will be out in paperback this summer, and The Ruby Notebook, which will release this fall. All of Laura's books are published by Delacorte and edited by Stephanie Elliott, including her other novels, What the Moon Saw, Red Glass, the newly released Star in the Forest, and the forthcoming The Queen of Water, co-written with Maria Virginia Farinango.
Indigo, called "an entertaining and suspenseful read" by School Library Journal, is set in the mountains of Ecuador, the latest home of 15-year-old Zeeta and her flighty mom, Layla, who can't stay put and moves them to a new home every year; Ruby is set in Aix-en-Provence, France, an enchanting city full of fountains, creamy yellow light, and a fascinating group of scarlet-clad street performers. Jade will be set in Oaxaca, Mexico, where Zeeta faces danger while trying to protect local sea turtles. All three books have mystery, adventure, folklore, magic, and romance ribboned through them, as well as the question of Zeeta's father—who he is, and whether he will let her into his life.
