I am happy to reveal the cover art for Kids in Orange: Voices from Juvenile Detention as well as the blurb! The book will release in both print and ebook in mid-February!
Blurb: The gang leader doesn’t like poetry, but will a detention center workshop show her how to express love for her newborn daughter? A teen boy dies of a drug overdose. Will his final poem speak what he cannot say?
In the middle of a career change from teacher to writer, Mindy Hardwick volunteered to facilitate a weekly poetry workshop at a juvenile detention center. By helping the teens write poetry about their lives, Mindy discovered strength and courage to grieve the loss of her father, find forgiveness and release the past.

Also, the Daily Astorian ran a nice profile article about the Cranberry Bay romance this week. You can read that article here.
