Writing as a family

On this week's show I talked with Lauren Baratz-Logsted. I talked with Lauren years ago about her books for adults - books that might be put in the "chick-lit" category. It's been probably 4 or 5 years and Lauren has published many books in that time - for young adults and for tweens.

I was fascinated by her new series of books called "The Sisters 8"... stories of octuplets who are turning 8 years old. The girls realize their parents are missing - and find out that each of them
Lauren didn't just come up with this idea on her own. One snowed-in week in Colorado without TV she and her husband and daughter Jackie decided to collaborate on the series.

"The Sisters 8 would make a great read aloud for families to share together. Readers of all ages will enjoy the mystery mixed with humor..." 5 stars,

Also check out the publisher's website for a quiz and paperdolls!
