Hi everyone! I wanted to make sure I popped in between launch activities to announce my book birthday. Roller Boy,  my third middle grade novel was released today by Fitzroy Books!  ;D
 
Here's a quick blurb: After his baseball dreams fall through, 13-year-old MATEO finds his true purpose at the roller-skating rink while dodging gangs, avoiding gluten, and falling for Roller City's star skater.

Details can be found on my blog: www.marciastrykowski.com 

Thanks so much for all the wonderful information and friendship I've found on these message boards over the years.  Back to launching!  :horse2
