Breeze, Erik, and Kate, Stories for Tweens

A FAMILY FOR LEONA

Hello. My name is Leona. I’m ten years old, almost eleven, and live, well I once lived, in New York. Recently, my whole life has changed. My story will be told in 2015, many years after it happened.  My story is similar to thousands of other children’s stories, yet it’s different too. I hope you will read about my life and understand me a little. The title of my story is A FAMILY FOR LEONA. My behavior isn’t always the best. I have a temper, but I’m working on control. It isn’t easy, believe me.

Have you ever been to Brooklyn? That’s where I was born. I have three sisters and two brothers.  My sister Florence is sixteen, Edna is three, and Baby Mildred is one. Henry, my oldest brother, is fourteen, and Lester is twelve. We live in a tenement apartment with our mama and papa, or we did until Mama got sick and went to Heaven. My life will never be the same.

GREAT NEWS!

The fantastic artist Aidana WillowRaven is the illustrator for my book.

She’ll design the cover. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

Watch for a cover reveal.
