‘My Mom, MS, and a Sixth-Grade Mess’ Debuts this January

IMG_0083.JPGFarmer’s Daughter Press is proud to announce they’ll be releasing My Mom, MS, and a Sixth-Grade Mess by Stacey Longo in mid-January. The book tells the tale of Patrick Holder, who first appeared in the children’s book My Mom Has MS (2015, Farmer’s Daughter Press), now in middle school. Patrick has problems: he has an English project due and he hasn’t read the book yet; he and his best friend like the same girl; he suspects he might have a unibrow. Oh yeah—and his mom has multiple sclerosis.

The book’s cover art and interior images were also illustrated by Longo, and the subject matter is personal. “My friend Renee was diagnosed with MS in 2008, and the way she and her family rallied to make the best of her situation was amazing.” The protagonist of the books—Patrick Holder—is based on Renee’s youngest son, and many members of her family make appearances in the latest book.

Written to help kids deal with their parent’s MS diagnosis, a portion of every sale of this book is donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
