Say hello to “Poppy Mayberry, The Monday!”


Over here at Sixteen To Read, we are beyond-the-moon excited to share the gorgeous cover of Poppy Mayberry, The Monday, by Jennie K. Brown.

What if your teacher could read your mind just because she was born on a Thursday? Or the kid next to you in class could turn back the clock just because he was a ‘Wednesday”? In the quirky town of Nova, all of this is normal, but one thing is not—Poppy Mayberry. As an almost-eleven-year-old Monday, she should be able to pass notes in class or brush her dog, Pickle, without lifting a finger. But her Monday telekinesis still has some kinks, and that plate of spaghetti she’s passing may just end up on someone’s head. And if that’s not hard enough, practically perfect Ellie Preston is out to get her, and Principal Wible wants to send her to remedial summer school to work on her powers! It’s enough to make a girl want to disappear…if only she were a Friday.

– Coming September 13, 2016 from Tantrum Books!

Goes the Reader’s site to find out more about the reveal and this beautifully unique YA coming releasing from S&S. Also enter for a chance to win an advanced copy of this lovely debut!

Things you can’t do when you’re permanently attached to your twin sister’s back:

  • Snowboard
  • Rock climb
  • Be ignored by strangers
  • Kiss a boy    –Stupid thing that my sister believes. Are you really letting her write this? –Hailey

Clara and Hailey love each other, and they’re comfortable in their conjoined bodies. It’s the stares and whispers they could do without.

Hailey’s a pink-haired artist who longs to explore the world and question every limitation. Clara’s an aspiring scientist who would rather stay home, avoid strangers, and study the night sky.

Yet Clara has secret, impossible dreams, like seeing Earth from space, and falling in love with a guy who could actually love her back.

Then telescope-loving Max comes to town, and Clara starts to question her definition of “impossible.”

Soon, both Clara and Hailey are forced to ask: Is it possible to pursue their dreams together? Or should they consider the risky, life-threatening surgery to separate them? And what does it really mean for each sister to be herself?
