Who is Tansky? by Bev Katz Rosenbaum – Readings & Signings Sept 22 & 28

Who is Tansky? (Orca Books)
Thirteen-year-old Tanya Kofsky is invisible. She hates that no one listens to her, at home or at her new school. So as student elections get underway, Tanya starts secretly painting controversial images on the walls of the school. Soon everyone is talking about this amazing artist with a lot to say.
The election results turn out to be a catalyst for more rebellion. And not just from students. Teachers, tired of the principal's authoritarian leadership, start promoting self-expression. Even the lunch ladies join in, ignoring the strictly controlled menu and serving more nutritious and culturally diverse fare.
But can this revolution affect real change? Or will speaking up lead to complete disaster?

Reviews
“A great read with the potential to light that spark in the leaders and activists of tomorrow.” ~CM Magazine

Bev Katz Rosenabaum is an award-winning publishing veteran who's worked as an in-house editor of both commercial fiction (at Harlequin Books) and literary fiction (at McGraw-Hill Ryerson, where she acquired and edited short fiction for teens by such luminaries as Teresa Toten and Patrick DeWitt). She’s also a multi-published author – of two romance novels, two young adult novels, and now a middle grade novel.
