Sandy writes contemporary, realistic middle-grade stories that explore the small but extraordinary events in children’s lives. She’s passionate about investigating how children endure and persevere through everyday struggles, and how overcoming those struggles takes constant, daily acts of courage.

“Poignant… This heartbreaking but ultimately redemptive middle grade novel shows the beauty of accepting one’s true self and finding a place to belong.”
