Arianne Costner Interview
I'm thrilled to have author Arianne Costner on our blog today. Her debut book, My Life as a Potato is out in the world, and can be purchased at Indiebound, Brain Lair Books, Amazon, or BN.com
I mentioned on Twitter that I've been in a reading slump lately. Normally, my go-to books are sad contemporary YA, but those haven't felt right. Enter this debut novel. It's a whole lot of fun and just what I needed right now. Filled with wonderfully weird middle school jokes and snafus, there are plenty of places in this book where you'll laugh out loud. I started reading it aloud to my 9-year-old and he appreciates the slapstick humor. I could also see reading this aloud to my 8 graders who would not only appreciate the humor, but recognize the struggles of a tween trying to find his place.
