THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY AND ART - HOLLY SCHINDLER

THE JUNCTION OF SUNSHINE AND LUCKY, a tale about a young girl's journey toward becoming a folk artist, is the perfect novel to use in an art class. 

I hope that young readers who pick up THE JUNCTION are inspired to try their own hand at repurposing items...maybe that old broken necklace at the bottom of their jewelry box, or the busted remote-controlled car under their bed. 

I would love to see any young reader's repurposed art...I'd also love to see their own drawings of what they think Auggie's house looks like!

If you've got a creative young reader in your life, shoot me artwork that's inspired by THE JUNCTION.  Email pics of their work to writehollyschindler (at) yahoo (dot) com; I'll feature it on my site for young readers: Holly Schindler's Middles.

  1. Love that cover. And the story looks terrific too. I want to get my hands on this!

    Great timing for a book on repurposing and the nature of beauty. (Although I realize there is much more to it!)
