Author Spotlight: Poppy Mayberry, The Monday—by Jennie K. Brown

What if your teacher could read your mind just because she was born on a Thursday? Or the kid next to you in class could turn back the clock just because he was a “Wednesday”? In the quirky town of Nova, all of this is normal, but one thing is not—Poppy Mayberry. As an almost-eleven-year-old Monday, she should be able to pass notes in class or brush her dog, Pickle, without lifting a finger. But her Monday telekinesis still has some kinks, and that plate of spaghetti she’s passing final-cover-with-blurbmay just end up on someone’s head. And if that’s not hard enough, practically perfect Ellie Preston is out to get her, and Principal Wible is sending her to a remedial summer school to work on her powers! It’s enough to make a girl want to disappear…if only she were a Friday. –Synopsis; Poppy Mayberry, The Monday.

“The idea actually came to me when I was stopped at a red light in my hometown of Chambersburg. I glanced up at the Starbucks on the corner across the street to see a young girl tossing a ball into the air. From the angle I watched, it looked as if the girl was controlling the ball with her mind,” tells author Jennie Brown.

The book released today, September 13, 2016. However, there will be a launch party on Saturday, September 17, from 1-3 pm at the Annville Elementary School, 205 S.White Oak St. Annville PA.
