Violets Are Blue

Twelve-year-old Wren loves makeup — special effect makeup, to be exact. When she is experimenting with new looks, Wren can create a different version of herself: someone who isn’t in a sort-of-best friendship with someone who seems like she hates her, someone whose parents aren’t divorced and doesn't have a new stepmom. So, when Wren and her mom move to a new town, she is cautiously optimistic — especially when she gets selected as the makeup artist for her school’s upcoming production of Wicked.

Only Wren’s mom is taking a lot of naps, starts snapping at Wren for no reason, and always seems to be sick. Wren keeps getting hints that things aren’t going well at her new nursing job. And an opening night disaster leads to a heartbreaking discovery: her mother has an opioid addiction — a problem that can’t be wiped away or covered up. After all the progress she’s made, can Wren start over again with her devastating new normal? And will she ever be able to heal the broken trust with her mom? From the author of the acclaimed My Life in the Fish Tank and Maybe He Just Likes You comes a moving and relatable middle grade novel about secrets, family, and the power of forgiveness.
