Thirteen-year-old Floey Packer feels like she's always blended in to the background. After all, she's the frumpy younger sister of the Fabulous Lillian. But when Lillian suddenly gets married and heads off on a monthlong honeymoon, Floey decides it's her time to shine.
Funny, honest, and surprisingly moving, I Am the Wallpaper introduces a remarkable new talent.
Mark Peter Hughes was born in Liverpool, England, but grew up in the coastal town of Barrington, Rhode Island. He now lives in Wayland,Massachusetts, with his wife, Karen, and their three small children, Evan, Lucia, and Zoe. He has written stories ever since he can remember.
"Humorous incidents abound, character growth is convincing, and the plot moves irresistibly forward. First-time author Hughes merits a place with Louise Rennison, Ellen Conford, and even Paula Danziger on the fiction shelves."—School Library Journal
