As a lover of books and all of the hard work that goes into creating them, I thought it would be fun to see where some of TNBBC's favorite authors roll up their sleeves and make the magic happen. This is Lydia Millet. She's the author of The Shimmers in the Night , a brand-new novel for middle readers that is the second in the Dissenters series that began last year with The Fires Beneath the Sea.
I like to write in public, with a low hum of noise but nothing too intrusive, so I float from venue to venue seeking subdued company and avoiding crowds.

Cara is unsettled about the camp for gifted children so when she receives an emergency texted message from her brother she collects her 2 best friends Hayley and Jaye and they head off to rescue Jax. It does seem that Lydia Millet has an anti-development message and its effects on the environment, but she goes about sharing her views in a such an imaginative and articulate way it did make this a very good story.
The Shimmers int he Night was definitely written with the younger reader in mind. Sep 08, Marisa marked it as to-read. Jul 22, Michelle rated it really liked it.
