"Kids will love every quirky thing about it!"
--Kristi Wientge, author, KARMA KHULLAR'S MUSTACHE
"I love the premise of hiding in plain sight. The concept that a kid could go through childhood - and life - without feeling they are being heard or seen is such an important topic . . . I know a lot of kids will be drawn to this!"
--Halli Gomez, contributing author, BRAVE NEW GIRLS: TALES OF HEROINES WHO HACK
"Emotionally engaging. I feel much sympathy for [the nameless princess], yet at the same time her parents and all their inadequacies are so endearing."
--Michelle Leonard, contributing author, BRAVE NEW GIRLS: STORIES OF GIRLS WHO SCIENCE AND SCHEME, Young Adult (Sci-Fi Anthology for ages 12+)
"I love all the rich details like the Blackflies, the goldfish in the moat, the sluices carrying the desserts . . ." --Karin Lefranc, author, I WANT TO EAT YOUR BOOKS
From the Author
The pencil sharpener is too noisy! Everyone will look at me.
For years, I didn't know what my teachers looked like, but I have the tile memorized. TROUBLE WITH PARSNIPS is about a much braver and more inventive person, the kind of person who looks up and sees everyone. The kind I want to learn to be.
As a grown-up, I went to a Toastmasters International club that helps people learn how to speak up in the right way at the right time. It's like Girl or Boy Scouts because you can earn "badges" for learning how to stand up in front of others. :)
At the time, I was a Girl Scout Leader, so our Troop tried everything out at our meetings. Nobody looked at the floor. After a while, the girls ran the whole meeting. It was cool.
So I started writing about a princess who didn't think she could ever give a speech.
