Book Birthday Bash


Just Under the Clouds by Melissa SarnoHappy Book Birthday to JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS!

JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS is a middle grade novel about a homeless girl, Cora, in Brooklyn, trying to understand where she belongs and how she’ll find a place for her family to call home. It’s about sisters and friendships and climbing trees, all while surveying the growing things along the sidewalks of Brooklyn.

We’re so happy you’re at our party for JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS. Join in the fun…


Listen to the soundtrack of New York City’s subways, horns, buses and taxis, along with the wistful Joni Mitchell and her guitar.


Pink cloud cupcakes, just like the ones Cora eats in the novel.


We’re outside, counting trees, climbing as high as we can, and playing the ‘what shape is this cloud?’ game.


Cora wants you to have your very own tree diary, just like hers.

JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS is written by Melissa Sarno and published by Knopf Books for Young Readers/Random House. You can buy this book at the retailers below…
