Meet Daisy Bauer and her sometimes best friend, Graham, who are determined to break Daisy's dad out of prison in this hilarious middle-grade debut.

No one believes her, but Daisy Bauer knows her dad has been wrongfully imprisoned and that it's up to her to break him out of jail (aka Club Fed). She has a plan that she's calling the Graham Cracker Plot because it was all Graham's idea. She just needs a miniature horse, a getaway truck, and a penny from 1919--the idea coin. 


This funny, nail-biter of a novel is about friendship and admitting you're wrong. Debut novelist Shelley Tougas balances humor and warmth against themes of family, broken trust, and unconditional love against all odds.

~ Interview with my 9 almost 10 year old ~


Describe The Graham Cracker Plot in five words:  Awesome. Hilarious. Adventurous. Exciting. Good. 

Did the like the audiobook: Yeah. The narrator sounded like she was a twelve year old girl, which was a good thing. Because Daisy is almost twelve.

What I liked: They were trying to break Daisy's dad out of jail which was cool. He was in there in there for messing with drugs and blowing stuff up. (Mom automatically thinks of the grownup show, Breaking Bad.)

Favorite character: Graham. He's Daisy's friend. He acts dumb but he's really not. He's smart. He's always talking about going to Canada and I'd like to go there someday too.
Ashley was funny too. She's kind of crazy and she has---well, I don't want to mess anything up for you, but she can do stuff with her head.

Did you learning anything? There are consequences for both kids and adults. 

How many stars would give The Graham Cracker Plot? I would give it 6 stars because it was incredibly awesome!

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Jason Segel, multitalented actor, writer, and musician, teams up with New York Times bestselling author Kirsten Miller for the hilariously frightening middle-grade novel Nightmares!, the first book in a trilogy about a boy named Charlie and a group of kids who must face their fears to save their town. 


Sleeping has never been so scary. And now waking up is even worse!

Charlie Laird has several problems.

1. His dad married a woman he is sure moonlights as a witch.
2. He had to move into her purple mansion, which is NOT a place you want to find yourself after dark.
3.He can’t remember the last time sleeping wasn’t a nightmarish prospect. Like even a nap.

What Charlie doesn’t know is that his problems are about to get a whole lot more real. Nightmares can ruin a good night’s sleep, but when they start slipping out of your dreams and into …
