Octavia Spencer Writing Books For Kids

I’m a self professed book nerd. Always have been, always will be.  I found as much joy as a kid in playing outside with my friends as I did curling up with a brand new book on the couch.  So news like this always makes me happy.  Oscar winning actress Octavia Spencer has made a deal with publishers Simon & Schuester Books for Young Readers to come up with a pair of books specifically for middle schoolers, reports The Associated Press.

The first book is called Randi Rhodes, Ninja Detective: The Case of the Time-Capsule Bandit and will be coming out sometime this fall.  According to Octavia, the book will follow along the lines of Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown books. A bit of mystery and history all in one.  This is awesome!  All of you parents of preteens, look out for this soon!
