Novels about Girls with Authors Carol Weston and Julie Sternberg
"Ava and Pip" is a charming story of sisters that is both readable and believable. Ava, who yearns to be a writer, and Pip, her shy older sister, make their way through life surrounded by family and friends who appreciate their special qualities as well as their live-and-learn mistakes.
Word plays and puns add humor to the story, the first in a series of books for middle-grade readers. Enjoy "meeting" the title characters as Upper West Side author Carol Weston shares their adventures. Carol has penned an advice column for Girls' Life magazine since 1994, getting to know the interests, ideas, and inspirations of young readers, especially girls.
"Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake" is the third in a series of middle-grade books written by Julie Sternberg. All three of Julie's creations feature Eleanor, a main character who learns to adjust to change (a new babysitter, going away to summer camp, and playing the lead in the school musical) as she grows a little older and more independent.
Both Julie and Carol are proudly representing the thoughts and ideas of thoroughly modern young girls as they write new books featuring relatable characters.
