The Bookstore Plus Hosts Author Signing and Craft Event with Rebecca Donnelly on Saturday, August 3rd, 2019, from 3:00-5:00 PM.

Join The Bookstore Plus for an exciting book event! Rebecca will be at The Bookstore Plus to autograph copies of her new book "The Friendship Lie". She will be in the store to discuss and personalize this awesome Middle Grade novel.  We will also be doing a craft!  We'll make tiny gift containers out of old film canisters. 



Cora Davis’s life is garbage. Literally. Her professor parents study what happens to trash after it gets thrown away, and Cora knows exactly how it feels to be thrown away. Between her mom and dad separating and a fallout with her best friend, fifth grade for Cora has been a year of feeling like being tossed into the dumpster.But Cora has learned a couple of things from her parents’ trash-tracking studies: Things don’t always go where they’re supposed to, and sometimes the things you thought you got rid of come back. And occasionally, one person’s trash is another’s treasure, which Cora and Sybella learn when they come across a diary detailing best-friendship problems. Told from two intertwining points of view, this is a warm, wry story of friendship, growing up, and being true to yourself.
