Today I'm excited to be among the first to see, and to share, the brand new book 'How to Be Manly' by Maureen O'Leary Wanket coming September 2014 from Giant Squid Books. 'How to Be Manly' is a Young Adult Contemporary novel. The cover art is by Jillian Blazek at JillianBlazek.com.
About the Book:
Maureen O’Leary Wanket on money in ‘How to Be Manly’:
I went down the numbers again. Then I looked through the bills open on the table. I picked up a pencil and made a list of numbers. Everything we owed. Everything Grandma and Grandpa took in with Social Security and their pensions. Before they retired, Grandma was a teacher and Grandpa was an engineer and worked for the state. She’d explained to me before that they had to be careful with money but I was never supposed to worry. They would always have enough to get by. We would always be okay.
