The Pages Between Us series

Told in letters, posters, blog posts, homework assignments, and more, The Pages Between Us is a totally fun, totally earnest snapshot of middle grade friendship—and what it truly means to be there for someone during the ups, downs, and everything in between. A darling series for upper elementary readers preparing for middle school, as well as middle schoolers already experiencing Piper and Olivia’s joys and heartaches.

“Leavitt and Mellom’s humorous and perceptive tale deftly explores the quandary of how to sustain a cherished friendship while nurturing individual growth.” –KIRKUS

“The girls’ voices are recognizably different… the premise and the delightful feeling of reading someone’s secrets should keep tween readers engaged.” ~Booklist

“Leavitt and Mellom have made the girls’ challenges–with each other, with their peers, with their families, and with themselves–relatable to those readers struggling to navigate the changes that middle school brings.” ~Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“A cousin to Rachel Renée Russell’s “Dork Diaries”… this is a gentler version of middle school, as the girls support each other through familiar trials… will be enjoyed by strong readers eager to devour realistic fiction with a multimedia slant.” ~School Library Journal

“In Piper and Olivia, Leavitt and Mellom have created a warm and likeable, but believably awkward pair of preadolescents. Readers will enjoy this story of love, friendship, change, and family.” ~Children’s Literature
