Holly Goldberg Sloan & Meg Wolitzer: "To Night Owl From Dogfish"

Avery Bloom, who's bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who's fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads.

When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends-and possibly, one day, even sisters.

But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted.

Holly Goldberg Sloan, author of "To Night Owl From Dogfish," wrote and directed family feature films, including "Angels in the Outfield" and "Made in America." "Counting by 7s," her first middle-grade novel, was a New York Times Bestseller. she appears in conversation with Meg Wolitzer, the New York Times-bestselling author of numerous novels, including "The Interestings," "The Ten-Year Nap," "The Wife" and "The Female Persuasion."
