Nancy J. Cavanaugh's debut middle grade novel, THIS JOURNAL BELONGS TO RATCHET will be published by Sourcebooks/Jabberwocky in April 2013. It is the story of one eleven-year-old's quest to make a friend, to save a park, and to find her own definition of normal. Ratchet tells her story through the assignments in her homeschool language arts journal.
Nancy lives in Florida with her husband and daughter. She spends her summers eating pizza in her former hometown of Chicago. Like her protagonist, Nancy's pretty handy with a ratchet. She loves reading middle grade novels. Her secret? She hasn't read an adult book in years.
