Cover Reveal for Return Fire by Christina Diaz Gonzalez

Dear Mr. Sharp,

Happy Saturday! I hope you had a wonderful week with your students. Instead of posting a video this week, I am sharing an interview with Christina Diaz Gonzalez and revealing the cover for Return Fire

I wrote the words in orange, and Christina wrote the words in black. 

Have an extraordinary weekend! 

Your friend, 

-John 


The cover illustration for Return Fire gives the reader a clue as to the location where much of the action will take place -- the Amalfi coast in Italy. Iacopo Bruno did a gorgeous job with it!

Return Fire tells the story of Cassie Arroyo, an American girl in Italy who discovers that she has the power to control the future through the legendary Spear of Destiny. 


I think Cassie and Asher are a great team. 

School libraries are like magic portals because on any given day you can go back in time, leap into the future, explore different worlds, experience new adventures and discover your own potential!

Reading is a wonderful way to unleash your imagination.

Mr. Schu, you should have asked me why I chose the name Cassie. The answer is that when Cassie was born a nurse asked Felipe (Cassie's adoptive father) if he was the father and he answered "casi" which means "almost" in Spanish. The nurse thought he was naming his newborn daughter Cassie and that's how Cassie got her name! 

Thank you, Christina! 


Look for Return Fire on September 27!
