The Pages Between Us
Charming, cute and heartfelt, this is a pitch-perfect, two-perspective collaboration between Lindsey Leavitt and Robin Mellom – two very funny, perceptive authors who write seamlessly together.
Olivia and Piper are two best friends who have always shared classes together, never needing to branch out and make other friends. But now they’re in middle school and despite having seven classes a day, they somehow only coincide for 52 little minutes! How can they survive?
When Piper finds the sparkly notebook in Target, an idea takes shape. How about the girls use the notebook (including flyers, brochures, receipts, scripts etc) to write to each other every day between classes – sharing all the ups and downs of their middle-school experience? Because now it’s time to break out of their shells and make new friends – even if that means venturing into a host of scary-sounding after-school clubs. LARPing, chess, Extreme Lego – they could all be amazing, right? Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Maybe?
With the notebook as the lifeline between them, the pages Olivia and Piper share – both hilarious and heartbreaking – will either bring them together . . . or tear them apart.
