Introducing Dear Poppy by Ronni Arno

Today calls for a celebration. Why? It's the day a great book launches into the world. This book...




...not only has a fun cover, but it's written by a great person! Ronni Arno is brimming over with talent. Plus--she's the type of person you'd just love to share a cup of coffee with! Read all about her new book and buy your own copy below.

Blurb:

When twelve-year-old Poppy moves to the country, she discovers a secret stash of letters that give her a unique connection to her late mother in this M!X novel about friendship, first crushes, and family drama.

City girl Poppy has always wanted a best friend, but never felt enough of a connection with anyone to gain BFF status. Even without a BFF, Poppy is horrified when her father decides to move her and her older brother out to the family farm. Away from her beloved city and away from memories of her late mom—a fresh start for everyone.

And after a weird first week at her new school, Poppy is convinced she is destined for a boring year—until she finds a stack of letters from 1985 hidden in the barn of the old farmhouse that they move into. Even better? Those letters are addressed to Poppy…from her mom. Poppy doesn’t know what supernatural event brought these letters to her, but she doesn’t care. All she knows is that she finally has the connection she yearns for. Plus, her mom seems to understand everything that Poppy is going through: not quite fitting in, the desire to put down roots, and the heartbreak of losing a loved one. Has Poppy discovered the friend—and acceptance—she’s always wanted?

    2. Okay, now my new goal is to get an actual bookshelf and buy every Aladdin M!x book from the last couple of years and just line them up! I'm a total Kindle-based reader, but this sounds like a great decorating idea!
