Book Trailer Premiere: Friend or Fiction by Abby Cooper

Happy Tuesday! Abby Cooper dropped by to share Friend or Fiction's AWESOME book trailer and to finish my sentences. I wrote the words in purple, and Abby wrote the words in black. Thank you, Abby! 

I am so excited to share the trailer for FRIEND OR FICTION, which releases October 8th from Charlesbridge. I think this trailer (created by someone who'd prefer to remain anonymous) does such a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. I hope readers enjoy the trailer and the book! 

Jade’s family is full of love, which is good, because they face their share of challenges. 

I hope Friend or Fiction encourages readers to write. Jade receives a lot of writing tips from her English teacher, Mrs. Yang, throughout the book. Students are always asking me for writing advice, and while Mrs. Yang’s tips are specific to Jade, I hope all aspiring writers will take them to heart and recognize the value in their unique stories and voices.

School libraries are one-hundred-percent essential, just like school librarians. 

Mr. Schu, you should have asked me what really excites me about this book. One thing I love as a reader is when the author leaves room for people to interpret things differently and come to their own conclusions. There are lots of these opportunities in FRIEND OR FICTION. I hope readers will be inspired to develop their own theories and ideas, and I can’t wait to hear what they come up with!

Look for Friend or Fiction on October 8, 2019.

Twelve-year-old Jade wishes her family would leave their no-name Colorado town already–everyone else does, including every friend Jade's ever had. But now that her dad's been diagnosed with liver cancer, they're not going anywhere. So Jade makes a friend who won't ever leave her: Zoe, the best best friend anyone could imagine, who lives in the pages of her notebook.

When an experiment gone horribly right brings imaginary Zoe to life, Jade is thrilled. But the strange power she wields over Zoe scares Jade, as does Zoe's increasing popularity. Is it okay to have a friend who has to do what you want? Is Jade really ready to share Zoe with the world?
