When twelve-year old Lizbeth has to start sixth grade all over again at a new school because of her parents’ divorce, she gets stuck sitting with the Weirdos. She’s also forced to wear a name tag until everyone learns her name—or makes up a new one for her. Meanwhile, all her plans to reunite her parents go awry as she accidentally saves the school arts program and stands up for outsiders everywhere. Oh, and did I mention there’s a SuperChicken?
You’ll laugh out loud, shed a tear at the ending, and close the book with a big huge grin.
We all need a mega-dose of feel-good right now, and NAME TAGS & OTHER SIXTH GRADE DISASTERS delivers.
Want Your Copy Signed—For Free?
If you want me to sign your copy—for free—send me an email that you’ve pre-ordered the book. I’ll send you a custom, awesomely adorable name plate. I will even personalize it if you’d like, and mail it to you at no charge. When your book arrives in late August, just attach to the inside front cover. The name plates are classy, cute, and one of a kind.
Free Classroom Virtual Visits
I teach creative writing to teens and tweens, and this year I’ll be doing a lot of my teaching over the web. I’d love to pop in to your classroom anytime! Whether your kids want to talk about the creative process, what the real deal is between antagonist and protagonist, or where I got the idea for NAME TAGS, we’ll have fun and create new projects together.
If you’d like to use NAME TAGS in the classroom, it’s a great pick for ELA classes or for art classes. Educator resources for both will be available on this site and on my Pinterest site at GingerLikesThis
