#FriendlyFriday - Maurice Broaddus

Welcome back to another #FriendlyFriday, where I tell you all about my fabulous friends and what brilliant things that they are up to!

For the second time this month, it's Maurice day!! My hardworking friend is back again with a brand new Middle Grade novel, UNFADEABLE, a story about building community, finding family, and the power of Black girl magic. Are you ready to hear more about it?

Bella “Unfadeable” Fades is determined to stay out of trouble. A wiser-than-her-years graffiti artist known for tagging walls and bridges in her Indianapolis neighborhood, the Land, Bella plans to spend her summer break laying low and steering clear of anyone who might tip off to social services that she’s living on her own.

But keeping a low profile is all but impossible when Bella discovers people in high places are trying to defund the Land. She has to find a way to fight back.

Getting involved will mean putting herself out there—making connections with unlikely friends and attracting potential enemies. But if Bella doesn’t put her trust in her neighbors and learn how to bring her community together, her home—and her future—will never be the same.

As usual, Maurice hits it out of the park with this addition to his literary repertoire. If you're ready to dive into Unfadeable, click here to grab your copy. And, as always, don't forget to stop by his website to check out his other titles!
