Happy Book Birthday! - Motley Education

 
Happy Book Birthday, S. A. Larsen!




MOTLEY EDUCATION

One of my long-time blog friends, Sheri Larsen, celebrated her first book birthday yesterday! I am so excited and happy for her, and I know this MG is a read you don't want to miss. I am purchasing a copy for my classroom and one for myself.


BLURB:
Forget having a lively after school social life, Ebony Charmed is fighting to keep the entire afterlife alive.

Ebony’s less-than-average spirit tracking abilities are ruining more than sixth grade at Motley Junior High: School for the Psychically and Celestially Gifted. Her parents argue so much her dad's moved out. And, even though he’s scared of his own shadow and insists on bringing his slimy, legless lizard everywhere they go, Ebony wouldn’t survive without her best friend, Fleishman.

When Ebony’s Deadly Creatures & Relics’ project goes missing she learns her missing project is one of the keys to saving the spirit world.

Now Ebony and Fleishman must battle beasts from Norse mythology to retrieve her project before spirits are lost, the Well of Urd dries up, and Ebony loses all hope of reuniting her family. But someone lies in wait, and he has other plans…including creating a new world of spirits without them in it.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
S.A. LARSEN is the author of Motley Education, the first book in a middle grade fantasy-adventure series.
