Cover Reveal: One Hundred Thirty Stars by Shelley Sly

Today I get to introduce you to a cool new cover from a fellow middle grade author. It's from our blogging friend Shelley Sly.

And now, the cover. One...two...three...

Here it is!

That book cover has "I must read this book" written all over it! One Hundred Thirty Stars is not available on Amazon yet, so I'm linking to it on Goodreads so that you can add it to your to-read list!

Blurb: Eleven-year-old Kelly “Birdie” Knotts has the perfect summer vacation planned: she’s finally going to visit her dad, Arthur. Birdie hardly knows him, but she has high hopes that he’ll be the one family member who understands her.

Too bad her vacation is nothing like she imagined it would be.

Arthur’s plans for their father-daughter visit revolve around a video game convention, where he dresses head-to-toe in costume and makes a boisterous scene every chance he gets. When he isn’t shouting gleefully in the hallways, he’s belting out off-pitch tunes in the karaoke room. Birdie’s new plan? Hide under a rock for life.

It’s impossible for Birdie to get to know Arthur when he insists that he’s a video game character. And if he doesn’t step up and start acting like a dad, it might be game over.

Shelley Sly grew up in northern New Jersey, but currently lives in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband and their chocolate lab mix. Three things she's a huge nerd about are children's books, indie music, and RPGs.
