Book news! Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer (working title) will be published by Holiday House.

The short version is that this is a middle grade novel about a kid who wants to live a life of high adventure, isn't willing to wait until she grows up to do so, and isn't about to let the fact that she's stuck with an otherwise ordinary kid life get in her way.

Or, to put it another way, Walter Mitty for middle grade readers, without the tragic ending.
