-"Something Stinks!" NSTA Award Winner Released April 28, 2013
"The moment I stepped out of Mom’s car I knew something was terribly wrong. I gasped as a horrible smell streamed up my nose. It was like that awful mix of odors that drift out of a dumpster behind a bad restaurant. The only problem was I was not behind a bad restaurant. I was at my aunt and uncle’s apple orchard. “This is nasty!” I blurted out, and I pinched my nostrils shut."
Join Emily on the hunt to find out who killed the fish, her friendship, and why life in the seventh grade is far from simple.
Author visits have begun! My first author visits were in Virginia, in Martinsville, near where Something Stinks! was set. Paul Collins, Martinsville Bulletin, covered the one at Rich Acres Elementary, Ms. Griffiths and Ms. Hearns 5th graders were full of questions, and ideas about writing. I had a blast, and please read this article at the Martinsville Bulletin.
