But I'm happy to say you don't have to wait until Friday to start reading March Misfit. We'll be posting the first three chapters of Barbara's book on the blog this week. Cool!
Here's what the story is about:
When a mudslide destroys her home and kills her parents, fifteen-year-old Cara Talbot is sent to live with a distant cousin, his wife, and five sons on a dairy farm in Indiana. The stink of cattle, a tiny bedroom loft, and two brothers who resent her intrusion make life a bitter struggle. As she copes with her grief, she finds solace caring for an autistic child, who helps her see the softer side of Nicolas March, another family misfit.
And here's Chapter One:
