In her forthcoming book Sofia Valdez, Future Prez, celebrated author Andrea Beaty tells the inspiring story of a brave young girl who devises a plan to clean up a local landfill in her community—and sets out to prove what one kid can do.
Andrea Beaty is a New York Times bestselling author and has received the Friends of American Writers Award, Parents’ Choice Silver and Gold Medals and National Association of Parenting Publications Gold medals.
“I began thinking about a story that would show children that they have some power, and that they can find the strength to focus on one thing they can do to make a change. To me, Sofia Valdez is a story about bravery and community, emphasizing that everybody has a role to play.”
