Wendy Mass is one of our favorite authors . . . ever! Her books, regardless of length or theme, are amazing. Plus, she uses her local library! Read this excerpt from an interview: "Once I find the topic that I want to write about, I go to the library and find every book or magazine on the subject. I start in the children's room with the simplest books . . . . Then once I understand the basics, I'll dive deeper into the subject." Her newest book, Pi in the Sky, came out today, June 11, 2013. I wonder what library books she read before she came up with such an out-of-this-world plot?
Joss is the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. This means that his older brothers took all the really cool jobs before he was born. All Joss gets to do is deliver pies. That's right: pies. Of course these pies actually hold the secrets of the universe between their buttery crusts, but they're still pies. Joss is happy to let his older brothers shine. He has plenty to keep his hands full: trying to improve his bowling score, listening to his best friend Kal try (and fail) to play the drums, and exploring his ever-changing home: The Realms. But when Earth suddenly disappears, Joss is tasked with the seemingly impossible job of bringing it back. With the help of an outspoken Earth girl named Annika, he embarks on the adventure of a lifetime and learns that the universe is an even stranger place than he'd imagined.
