So pleased to reveal the cover of the next book in the Emmie & Friends series…TRULY TYLER! That’s right, it features a boy. Not just any boy, but Emmie’s crush from INVISIBLE EMMIE. The story kicks off as Tyler and Emmie join forces in art class to create their own comic book. The chapters switch back and forth between Tyler and Emmie as they work on their project over the next three weeks. Peer pressure, self doubt, and (as always) hilarity ensue in this layered tale of friendship and family. BONUS: It includes Tyler and Emmie’s final comic creation — as in: a book within a book! I’m so pleased with the way this story came together, and I hope you’ll agree. TRULY TYLER comes out May 4, 2021. To pre-order, go here.
