I wanted to share with you that I have updated my middle school series, the Landry’s True Colors Series. So far it’s just the e-books that have been updated, but eventually the paperbacks will be as well. I felt it was time to make a few changes since social media and technology has changed a lot in the past few years, yet the topics and themes in the books remain very relevant.
I wrote this series because of all the great upper middle grade and YA series that I turned to when I was in school to get me through tough times. I wanted a series that touched on things like dealing with friends and frenemies (friends who sometimes act like enemies), self-esteem, feeling insecure in class (Should I raise my hand? What if I get the answer wrong?), first crushes, and handling growing up during middle school.
I find that whenever I do book events (or Zoom book club meetings) that not only do readers say middle school has been their toughest time, but their parents, guardians, and grandparents also chime in about that, too. Let’s be honest—they sometimes shudder as they share the things they went through. It seems those preteen years shape us a lot.
I wanted these books to be a friend through the tough times so you know you’re not alone as you go through these things. The books are also a great way to look back at those days and connect with your preteen and teen as they face the same things you did.
There’s also a reading guide that goes along with all three books that you can use with questions and journaling prompts. I’ve been hearing that these guides work great for book clubs and also for discussions to find out what’s going on at school and with your preteen and teen.
I hope you enjoy reading the updated series!
