I know 2014 is the Year of the Horse, but around here we're calling it ...

The Year of the Goldfish!

About the book: 

Galileo. Newton. Salk. Oppenheimer.
Science can change the world . . . but can it go too far?
Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough . . . he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this pimply boy really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth?
With a lighthearted touch and plenty of humor, Jennifer Holm celebrates the wonder of science and explores fascinating questions about life and death, family and friendship, immortality . . . and possibility.

Publishing date: August 24, 2014

Be the Match

Earlier this year, I received an email from a friend of one of my fans. She wrote that her friend, Natalie, had been diagnosed with acute leukemia and was having a hard time in the hospital with the treatments. She was hoping I would consider sending a note of encouragement because Natalie was a huge Boston Jane fan.

I sent a package and connected with her family and have been following Natalie's progress ever since. She seemed to have been doing better but has since had a relapse and will now need a bone marrow transplant. No one in her immediate family is a match so they are hoping that someone in the Bone Marrow Registry Network will match with her. And they are encouraging her friends to please register.

Natalie is a beautiful and brave young lady with an incredible spirit, and I would like to help her as much as possible. And you can help, too.

Be the Match is a bone marrow registry that connects patients with life-saving bone marrow donors. It's easy to join. Just click HERE to find out how to join the registry.

Let's help Natalie overcome this so that she can grow up and make her own luck just like Jane.
