Blitz + Giveaway: The Beat on Ruby’s Street

Welcome to the blitz tour for The Beat on Ruby’s Street by Jenna Zark! This is a middle grade novel and is now available for sale!

About the Book:
The last thing eleven-year-old Ruby Tabeata expected to happen on her way to a Jack Kerouac reading was to be hauled to the police station.

It’s 1958 and Ruby is the opposite of a 1950s stereotype: fierce, funny and strong willed, she is only just starting to chart her course in a family of Beat Generation artists in Greenwich Village. Ruby dreams of meeting famous poets while becoming one herself; instead, she’s accused of trying to steal fruit from a local vendor and is forced to live in a children’s home. As Ruby struggles to return to family and friends, she learns her only choice is to follow her heart.

Join Ruby’s journey as she finds unexpected friendships, the courage to rebel against unjust authority and the healing power of art in this inspiring middle-grade novel by Jenna Zark.

  1. That’s an intriguing storyline. I have to say that the cover was not saying middle-grade to me so I’m glad I read your synopsis. Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday!
