"An important, positive conservation message, and a perfect nonfiction addition to preschool story time or a beginning informational picture book collection." - SLJ, starred review
"A joyful thing to behold. Set in Victorian England, this mystery gleefully overturns sexist norms and celebrates independent women of intellect, with Myrtle Hardcastle leading the charge."
—Booklist, starred review
You may know e.E. Charlton-Trujillo as an indie filmmaker (see AT-RISK SUMMER). You may know her as an activist who empowers kids through the nonprofit organization Never Counted Out. You may know her as the author of three published novels including the Stonewall Award-winning FAT ANGIE. Indeed, she is all of those things and more, including author of WHEN WE WAS FIERCE, a novel that will release from Candlewick in fall 2016—and now, author of a FAT ANGIE sequel, which was just signed by her Candlewick editor Joan Powers!
When last we left Fat Angie, she had found her self-confidence in the love of the gorgeous and damaged KC Romance. The sequel picks up after KC has relocated to Dallas and Angie is left to figure out how to live here, now, and finally for herself. When she and a group of norms and misfits hit the road for an overnight escape in a 1980s Jamboree motor home, it soon becomes a full-fledged BREAKFAST CLUB on wheels, and Angie and her friends could all find the answers they're seeking.
Huge congratulations, e.E.!
