ONE WAY OR ANOTHER coming Fall 2020 from Scholastic

Mallory Kass at Scholastic has bought, at auction, One Way Or Another by Kara McDowell, pitched as a Sliding Doors YA romantic comedy. Seventeen-year-old Paige has an undiagnosed anxiety disorder and a debilitating fear of making the wrong decision. When faced with an impossible holiday dilemma, she lives out two parallel fates: Christmas at a snowy cabin with her best friend and longtime unrequited crush, and Christmas in New York with exciting new possibilities.

Mommy blogs are great . . . unless the blog happens to belong to your mom.

Twin sisters Claire & Poppy are accidental social media stars thanks to Mom going viral when they were babies. Now, as teens, they're expected to contribute by building their own brand. Attending a NY fashion week and receiving fan mail is a blast. Fending off internet trolls and would-be kidnappers? Not so much. Poppy embraces it. Claire hates it. Will anybody accept her as "just Claire"? And what should Claire do about Mom's old journals? The handwritten entries definitely don't sound like Mom's perfect blog persona. Worse, one of them divulges a secret that leaves Claire wondering what else in her life might be nothing but a sham . . .
