“Ruby in the Sky” by Ashford’s own, Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo

JEANNE ZULICK FERRUOLO lives in Ellington, Connecticut, with her husband and children. Ruby in the Sky is her first novel, and it won the SCBWI Work-in-Progress Award, the PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award, and the New Voices in Children’s Literature: Tassy Walden Award.
 “The stories of the main characters intertwine beautifully, each one demonstrating the self-trust that enables them to do the right thing and to forgive. Writing in Ruby’s voice, Ferruolo creates an engaging plot peopled with complex characters that gracefully navigate many issues of our time, including women’s rights, immigration, prejudice and diversity, and bullying.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review
