We’re so excited to unveil the cover for Anika Fajardo’s sophomore middle-grade novel, MEET ME HALFWAY, which is set to be released in May 2022.
But first, a little about the book...
When new classmates Mattie Gómez and Mercedes Miller meet and realize they have the same dad, the two reluctantly team up in this Parent Trap–inspired misadventure.
Determined to meet the father they’ve never known, these polar opposites suddenly have to work together to fake sleepovers, evade their friends, and plot daring escapes from school field trips in an effort to track down him down.
If only they could stop bickering long enough to get the show on the road.
With echoes of the themes from Anika’s first novel, WHAT IF A FISH, this sharp and poignant middle grade adventure examines the bonds that make a family.
And now for the gorgeous cover art designed by the talented EJ Chong, who perfectly captured the personalities of the two unlikely new sisters:
Anika Fajardo is an award-winning writer, who was born in Colombia and raised in Minnesota. She is the author of Magical Realism for Non-Believers: A Memoir of Finding Family and two middle-grade novels, What If a Fish and Meet Me Halfway. She lives with her family in Minneapolis.
